The location:

The Cabbage Tree Bay Aquatic Reserve is located at Shelly Beach, Sydney which is only minutes from world famous Manly Beach. Shelly Beach aspect faces West which protects the location from a lot of swell on the East Coast of Australia.  The sheltered habitats of rocky reefs, sea grass meadows and sandy bottom are home to a range of resident and transient marine species.

The Cabbage Tree Bay Aquatic Reserve is a “NO TAKE” marine zone which was established in 2002.  No fishing of any kind, or taking any species including shells is permitted. Fines apply for any breaches of these laws. The protection of the area has been a very successful conservation management strategy. We can now all enjoy seeing the range of species in the Cabbage Tree Aquatic Reserve located only 30mins from Sydney city.

Manly also has a vibrant coastal village atmosphere and nature walk trails. Sydney Harbour National Park website lists all the local walks in the area.
