Itinerary

Take the Manly Bike Tour and Sunset Cruise for fresh air and exercise and unsurpassed views of Sydney.

The tour starts with a cycle down to Circular Quay to catch the ferry to Manly. Make sure you have your camera to capture the superb views of the Harbour and the Opera House during the 30-minute ferry crossing.

You’ll disembark at Manly and get a chance to stroll on this world-famous beach. Manly is a popular destination for swimming, kayaking and beach volleyball among other activities. Then jump back on your bike for the scenic journey to North Head. There is a significant hill on the way but don’t worry, it’s worth it when you get up there and the ride down is a blast!

Take in the coastal cliffs with the city skyline in the background, and depending on the time of year, maybe catch a glimpse of endangered little penguins or migrating humpback whales.

Return to Manly to catch the ferry back to Sydney. Relax on board as you admire a beautiful sunset behind the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, and city skyline. After your cruise, pedal back to 30 Harrington Street where your tour ends.
