The Manly Ferry is the easiest and most pleasant way to get to Manly from the City and Airport. From the Airport:
- Follow the signs down to the trains from the airport terminal and purchase a ticket from the ticket office to Circular Quay Station. Make your way further underground to the 'City' Platform and jump on the next available train (they all go to Circular Quay). The train ride takes about 20 minutes.
- On arrival at Circular Quay Station make your way down the stairs and out towards the ocean side of the station. Make your way to Wharf 3, and buy a ticket for the Manly Ferry. The journey through Sydney harbour takes about 30mins and lands you at the Manly Wharf, in the heart of Manly.
