Free Activities

Manly is not just an award winning beachside destination, but is home to a host of free activities and adventures waiting to be uncovered. The Corso is home to a vibrant shopping village which on weekends expands down Sydney Road into a buzzing market.  Full of locally sourced products ranging from artwork to jewelery, it’s a lovely way to spend the day. Manly is also steeped in history leaving you meandering through a trail of art galleries, museums and walking tracks.  There is never a shortage of free things to do in Manly, see some of our favourites below.
