Manly – Seven miles from the city, a million miles from care.

Manly is one of Australia’s most loved, frequently visited and scenic seaside destinations. The laid-back beach atmosphere combined with the buzzing Corso and heaps of outdoor activities make it the perfect place to visit or live.


BoardRider BackPacker & Budget Motel is located in the heart of Manly, which features weekend markets, boutique stores, coffee shops, lively bars and restaurants on the doorstep, plus a gourmet hot dog shop in the foyer! Boasting great water views from the lounge and deluxe rooms, you are a mere 80m from one of Australia’s premier beaches, and a short ferry ride to the famous Sydney Harbour.

This perfect location is an ideal base from which to experience Australian beach culture, whilst only being 7 miles from the heart of the city.

By night, Manly comes alive with pubs, cocktail bars, nightclubs and regular festivals. There are plenty of diverse restaurants to choose from to suit every traveller’s budget, offering everything from international a-la-carte dining to fresh local seafood.

So come kick back, relax, and see why the Northern Beaches attract over 8 million visitors per year. If you’re like everyone else, you’ll find it hard to leave!
