Was wondering if any one could help.

We are trying to get accommodation for 3 months over christmas near sydney beaches and are thinking about Manly?
Has anyone ever stayed there?? Or know anything about it?? Any advice would be great...

Hi Jordana,

I live in Bondi, but used to live in Manly. Its a great spot! Although unless you catch the ferry the bus trip can be a drag. There are a few backpacker hostels there, and a lot of travellers living in shared flats. A couple: / The Wharf backpackers ph 61 2 9977 2800 or email / The Bunkhouse / 3-months is about your minimum for an apartment, and this would save you a bit of money if there is a few of you (and its your own place). is another gateway. My advice is to contact places now otherwise expect to be miss out.

Hope this helps.

Manly's a brilliant place, with a great surf beach (and many more nearby) and also a great harbour beach. It's one of those beach subrubs that has a lot of wealthy people living there, together with a high population of backpackers/travellers and so has a great feel. It's about a 30 minute ferry trip to the city.
