Manly, QLD

Suburb Profile


Amidst the beautiful setting of Moreton Bay, vessels of all shapes and sizes sit side by side in a marina that holds centre stage in one of Brisbane’s most loved seaside locations. Situated only a mere 30-minute drive from the heart of Brisbane city, Manly is as much a weekend destination as it is a place to call home.

Boasting a number of boating squads, including the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, Brisbanites from all over descend on Manly, to moor and launch their vessels off of what is considered to be one of the largest boating facilities in the southern hemisphere. Boats head due east, taking day trips out to nearby Moreton Island, Stradbroke Island and Tangalooma Wreck, where dolphins playfully distract crews from their seafaring adventures.

Pristine water laps against Manly’s foreshore, cooling off the sun drenched path that flows from Manly to Wynnum, and through the heart of Manly Harbour Village – a place that’s fast emerging into a café and dining hotspot and which has an array of boutique shopping and galleries.

Little Bayside Park is a hive of activity every weekend, with the Manly Creative Markets and the Jan Powers Farmers Market as regular features, whilst the annual Halloween Street parade attracts thousands. In the heat of summer, locals cool off at Wynnum wading pool or sit in the shade of the park soaking up the sea breeze whilst watching the vast array of sails drift by.
