Whether you’re a history buff or know nothing of Manly’s history this tour is a must! It gives a snap shot of significant historical events & people since English settlement in 1788. We walk from the beautiful harbor of Sydney and wind our way through the oldest parts of the Village. You will hear fascinating stories about the First Fleet, Convict land grants, Castles, Who built Manly and much much more. A great way to relax and see Manly.

Living in The Northern Beaches for quite some time and being from overseas, I didn't imagine some of the historical sites Karen showed us existed. She explained the history so well that we felt like we were taken a century back in time!
