Travel | Sydney 2 1 At the Rock Market, visitors can enjoy a range of foods and shop for quirky knick knacks. 2 Enjoy a variety of dishes at White Rock Café after walking on the Bicentennial Coastal Walk. 1 The walk ends at the cliffs marking the entrance to the harbour at North Head, where there are incredible views down the water... tamer, the scenery is just as attractive: manicured gardens, yachts bobbing at anchor, and green Manly ferries chugging towards the wharf. Manly has been a seaside resort of Sydneysiders since the ferry service began from the city in 1854, and today the 30-minute ferry ride is still a highlight of any trip to Sydney. The suburb is superbly located on a peninsula between ocean and harbour, and boasts a dozen beaches, some so well hidden in tiny coves they’re known only to local residents. The main beach, on the other hand, is a huge sweep of golden sand that attracts thousands of day trippers and is patrolled by lifesavers in distinctive red-and-yellow caps. Head on another walk up the hill from Manly, past the hospital and military reserve, and you’ll find yourself at the Old Quarantine Station, established in the 1830s to isolate immigrants suspected of harbouring infectious diseases. There are guided history tours during the day that provide curious insights into Sydney’s immigration history and the rather gory tale of medical science. Particularly popular are night-time ghost tours for those in search of a thrill. Further uphill, you enter another section of Sydney Harbour National Park, which is home to some rare marsupials and features more Aboriginal rock carvings left by the Kameygal people. The walk ends at the cliffs marking the entrance to the harbour at North Head, where there are incredible views down the water, past islands and cliffs and skimming yachts, to the skyscrapers of the city centre: Sydney at its picture-perfect best. 5 Senses – Scent CHINESE GARDEN OF FRIENDSHIP Seek out this city oasis, one of the best classical Chinese gardens outside China, at the other end of Darling Harbour.
