Situated 10 kilometres north-east of Sydney on the lower Northern Beaches, Manly was named by Captain Arthur Phillip after his encounter with the confident and manly Aboriginal people of the Kay-ye-my clan who lived here. Surrounded on three sides by water, Manly is the perfect destination to enjoy both the habour and the 18 ocean beaches, coves and inlets to swim, sail and surf. Some of Manly's attractions including Oceanworld, featuring Australia's largest collection of marine life, the Manly Art Gallery and Museum, one of the finest regional art galleries in NSW, the North Fort Artillery Museum, also at North Head, has a collection of guns used in the defence of Australia over the past 200 years. Manly was very much a village in its early days and while many things have changed over the past 125 years, Manly is still affectionately referred to as 'The Village'.
