Manly Wine, Sydney
I know that when you’re born and bred Melbourne, you’re meant to hate Sydney, and vice versa. But I have to be honest – I really like Sydney! It’s different to Melbourne, but not in a bad way. It’s mostly pretty laid back, probably from the whole city-near-the-beach thing they have going on over there. Bondi is beautiful, as everyone knows, but I’m a huge fan on Manly; it’s definitely underrated.
Beautiful white sand beach, less busy than Bondi, great cafe culture, it’s just a cool place to go and hang out for a day. Even better when it’s a hot day and you have a hankering for an ice cold cider. Or beer. Or wine. If you do, and you also wouldn’t mind a delicious bit to eat, visit this place. It’s just tucked away from the main strip, overlooking the water. It’s retro-garden-party kitschy cool, the food is great, awesome selection of beverages, and a beautiful view. Off ya go!
