Never really noticed before, but there's some distinct art nouveau motifs on that last heritage facade ^^. The art deco style in Manly is more prolific of course. Great pics. :cheers:

I feel warmer just looking at those.
Love Manly, it adds to the diversity of Sydney. You can be sitting in a lane in Sydney city having a coffee feeling all sex in the city, or noodles in a crazy Newtown arty cafe, jump on a ferry and you're in a tropical seaside town enjoying the water and sun. Ahhhhh the diversity.

The Ferry ride is the best thing about going to Manly. I could never get tired of it. It's the best way to see the relationship the urban environment has with the natural environment, it makes for something spectacular, only a handful of cities around the world can replicate.

Closest thing in the world would have to be the Staten Island Ferry,

And I think we have it beat.

I always found the closest comparison to Sydney harbour and its ferries, including the terminals, is Istanbul and the Bosphorus and they arguably have it beat. ;)

The ride to Manly is one of the highlights but it can feel like your in another world once your there. Great place to spend the day.
