MY WALKING TOUR OF SYDNEY - MANLY

This weeks walking tour takes me to the beach suburb of Manly. Situated seven miles north-east of Sydney on the lower Northern Beaches, Manly was named by Captain Arthur Phillip after his encounter with the 'manly' Aboriginal people of the Kay-ye-my clan who lived here. Surrounded on three sides by water, Manly is the perfect destination to enjoy both the harbour and the 18 ocean beaches, coves and inlets to swim, sail and surf.

Great photos, looks like a very nice place to be! The vegetation is partly surprising, I wouldn't expect so many pines and so less palms in Australia, makes it look a bit more "nordic".

There are not many palms trees in Sydney and those are the Norfolk Pines, natives of the region http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Araucaria_heterophylla
