Fairlight is a quiet suburb located 13 kilometres from Sydney’s city centre. Fairlight’s main attraction is its proximity to Manly: the suburb is within walking distance to the beach. If you’re looking for a convenient spot that’s close to both Sydney centre and its beaches, Fairlight is a fantastic option.
Manly Beach is a 3 minute drive and a 15 minute walk from Fairlight, meaning you can squeeze in as much quality beach time as possible while on holidays. The historic Manly Beach is one of the oldest beach resorts in Sydney, with plenty of good surfing, space for sunbathing, and saltwater swimming pools. Parasailing, scuba diving, snorkelling, and other watersports are all popular activities for both locals and holiday makers alike.
Fairlight is close to Manly Wharf, so no worries if you don’t have a car and still want to see Sydney. Within minutes, you can be docking at Circular Quay, close to the Royal Botanical Gardens, the Opera House, the Sydney Aquarium, the restaurants at the Rocks, and much more. By car, you can access most of what Sydney has to offer within a half hour.
