2018-02-11 - Sydney - Judy & Bob’s Travels

On This Day . . .


February 11, 2018, was our second day in Sydney. We took the shuttle back to Darling Harbor where we had to walk down the boardwalk about 400 yards to Barangaroo were we met the ferry that would take us to todays destination, Manly Beach.

 Manly Beach is a beach situated among the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia in Manly, New South Wales. The beach was named by Capt. Arthur Phillip for the indigenous people living there. Philip wrote that, "The indigenous people's] confidence and manly behaviour made me give the name of Manly Cove to this place".

After a 30 minute ferry ride we arrived at Manly Pier and a small beach on the harbor side. A 10 minute walk across a narrow flat piece of land brought us to the expansive beach on the sea.  After spending an hour or so we returned to Watson's Bay for lunch and then back to Darling Harbor and the ship.
