Manly Where?

Manly Boat Harbour, Moreton Bay, Queensland
Mention Manly in Australia and most people think of Manly Beach in Sydney.  With the added attraction of the "must do" ferry ride to the beach from the heart of the city, Manly attracts loads of tourists and Sydney-siders daily. 

When we lived close to the Harbour in Sydney I was able to walk a short distance to the wharf each morning for a spectacular ferry ride to Circular Quay and my work in the city.  What a great way to start the day!  I knew well how very lucky I was living in such a beautiful location.

For three years Manly, Brisbane has been home for Bristol Rose where she is tied to the slip at the RQYS.  Manly Boat Harbour on Moreton Bay in Queensland is another great place to spend some time.  It's said to be the largest man-made marina on Australia's east coast with 1,800 water craft of various shapes, sizes and type.  Waking up on the water, what a great way to start the day!

Manly, a bayside suburb on the southeast side of Brisbane, has a village atmosphere, train station to take you to the city, markets on the weekends, restaurants, supermarket, pub, a boardwalk around the water's edge that goes for miles, and so much more.  I love that saying, "you make your own luck".  It's mostly about choices because that's all we really have any control over.
