          A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
          you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
          here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
          day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
          a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
          Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
          plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
          cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
