Sydney Northern Suburbs

Bounded by Sydney Harbour, the Pacific Ocean and Sydney Harbour National Park, Sydney’s North offers a tranquil hideaway only a short ferry ride from the city centre. Sydney’s North includes the popular shopping areas of North Sydney and Chatswood, the sophisticated harbourside shopping village of Mosman and nearby Balmoral Beach and further north the relaxed, cosmopolitan beachside suburb of Manly.

Manly is a place of natural beauty, beach culture and good living. Manly offers a range of recreational activities such as learning to surf or dive, bike riding, roller blading or parasailing in the summer months, or just relax and enjoy the ocean views and harbour breezes at one of the cafes or restaurants.

Sydney’s North also offers a wide range of shopping experiences. Browse through the shops along Military Road, Mosman for quality clothes and designer homewares. Reward yourself with lunch or dinner at one of the waterfront restaurants on the esplanade at nearby Balmoral Beach only a short bus ride from Mosman.

  • Enjoy picturesque views of native bushland in a coastal setting on the Manly to Spit Bridge scenic walk.

  • From Mosman Wharf take the bus to the village of Mosman and browse through the designer boutiques and homeware stores.
  • Swim at Balmoral Beach, one of Sydney Harbour’s best, followed by fish and chips on the beach.

Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
