Manly, Australia

Sunrise - Manly Australia 

“There is a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they're absolutely free. Don't miss so many of them .” - Jo Walton


Sometimes we forget the benefit of waking up early on a Sunday morning to enjoy the sunrise, a delicious breakfast, and a walk along a beautiful beach. It is too often preferred to sleep in and lie around. When you live near a beautiful town like Manly, it is not so hard to want to be a morning person. Sunday at the sea for sunrise has become an addiction for me, the best start to a day, and Manly is a great place to experience it.

Queensclift, Manly, Australia, Sunrise

Enjoy the Sunrise


Manly is full of places to see the sunrise. You can basically see it along the entire three-kilometer path from Queenscliff to North head. There is a secret spot out on the rocks of Queenscliff, and multiple vantage points on the hills above Shelly Beach. Most the time, just a view from Manly Beach is as good as anywhere else. I’ve found the clearest of days are not necessary the best, as the clouds can reflect the early morning sun, making a magical sunrise.
