A Sydney suburb that offers harbour and beach views, as well as a cracking restaurant and bar scene? Lucky for style blogger Sara Donaldson, she lives just down the road.
“Manly has become a very special place to me since moving to Sydney seven years ago. My fiancé and I live just five minutes away and the beachside suburb is our go-to location for nights out to hole-in-the-wall restaurants and good coffee on the weekends.
Manly is also blessed with so much natural beauty. I was convinced for years that the penguins residing under Manly Wharf were a myth until I saw them myself one night!
We got engaged at the dog park overlooking Sydney Harbour [Tania Park] – which is also one of the best locations to watch the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race begin on Boxing Day each year. Manly really has it all.”
