Reviews of Manly, QLD

"Beauty, Lifestyle and Class"

Spectacular natural beauty meets sassy caf culture in this coastal-lovers haven. A must be place for any aspiring or seasoned boat lover, Manly is home to the largest boat harbour facility in the southern hemisphere.
The allure of the island views and protected parklands together with an all-together relaxed yet somehow vibrant lifestyle makes Manlys appeal more compelling than ever.
Housing options range from multi-million dollar Bayview living to quaint post-war builds, modern apartments, lowset brick buildings, modern units and stunning Queenslanders. There really is an option for everyone.
The city is a mere 30 minute hop and skip on the train if the notion compels you to visit however, Manly has all the facilities one could need, including the ever popular farmers markets on the foreshore every second week together with many other local businesses, shops and restaurants.

"Manly is 'mazing"

Manly is a beautiful suburb. I grew up in Wynnum and loved to visit Manly. There are lots of really cool boutique cafe's and the suburb is getting super trendy. There are markets on Sundays and Farmer's Markets every 2nd Saturday. I learned to sail at RQYS which offers lessons every Saturday and it's really beautiful out on the bay. There are heaps of nice walking and biking tracks around so it's great if you lead an active lifestyle. Manly is really expensive, I would move there if I could :(

Great for

  • Trendy cafes
  • Markets on weekends
  • Beauty of the bay
  • Friendly locals
  • Recreation and public spaces
  • Great esplanade walk - best in Brisbane

Not great for

  • Getting a bit snobby
  • Far from universities
  • Housing a bit pricey on the bay

"Brisbane's beautiful bayside village"

Manly's north east facing aspect, village shopping centre, parkside esplanade and boat harbour provides the perfect setting for enjoying the good life near the water. It's a clean and friendly village with all the conveniences of the best that cities offer. It's a great place to enjoy life.

Great for

  • Great esplanade walk - best in Brisbane
  • Beauty of the bay
  • Friendly locals
  • Recreation and public spaces

Not great for

  • Housing a bit pricey on the bay
  • If you don't own a boat - you will feel the need to buy one

"great place to live"

The beauty of the bay, great cafes and food, plenty of bike and jogging paths, quiet during the week and full of life on the weekend. And unlike Bulimba, you will find born and bred Brisbane locals here (yes, it took me a few months mum, but I finally found some after moving to Manly - and no I don't believe they are actually an endangered species anymore).

"Manly - Very Trendy"

Hi all,

Manly wow what can I say, after living there for a couple of years I think the best word I could use to describe this fantastic area would be "Trendy".

Great restraunts, and a beautiful esplanade.

"development"

Manly is an uncut diamond. Highly valuable but lacking in the killer punch that is presentation. Manly needs development in the village area similar to what has been achieved in Bulimba. More entertainment options will bring more visitors, more visitors means the desirability of the area is enhanced. Increased desirability increases revenue for local businessess and property values.
Development in Manly will make the diamond of the bay shine.
