A Guide to parking in Manly

Manly is a bustling hub of popular cafes, restaurants, pubs and bars. The Corso is where you’ll find everything from fashion, souvenirs, and all things surf! The weekend markets can be found here each weekend, however parking in Manly is notoriously a hard find.

On-street parking in Manly

Manly is host to a range of council monitored street parking spots that line the beachfront from Manly Beach all the way to Queenscliff. Locals of the surrounding residential areas quickly snap these spots up early and benefit from the ownership of parking permits. For people visiting the area, these beachfront spots are run on a Pay-and-Display system, setting you back upwards of $10 per hour, up to $50 for the day!

To help, our friends at Spot Parking have mapped all the streets so you can easily see how long you can park and how much it will cost you – check out their free parking finder here.

Instead of risking a parking fine, book a spot on Oscar here.

Off-street parking in Manly

Manly has four council car parks which collectively host 987 parking spaces. They offer the same parking rates (see below) – with the first 2 hours free, however they are often full on weekdays by 8am from commuters, and on weekends by beachgoers.

  • 3-3.5 hours – $16
  • 3.5-4 hours – $20
  • 4-5 hours – $32

  • Overnight Rates: Vehicles that stay in the parking stations between 12am and 6.59am are charged an extra $5.

Manly National car park is the only council car park to offer an early bird rate. Enter before 9am then leave before 3pm Monday to Friday and you’ll be charged a flat $21.50. For the most affordable hourly rates, book a private spot from $2/hour on Share with Oscar here.

Monthly Parking in Manly

You may prefer to lock in a permanent parking spot and save yourself the trouble of having to think about parking every day. Arranging monthly parking (whether it’s 24/7, just Monday to Friday, or for a few days a week) is also something Share with Oscar can help with. Monthly parking is also generally cheaper than booking daily as you are locking yourself in for the month.

Share with Oscar now also offers monthly parking across Sydney CBD. If you’re looking for a secure and undercover space with unlimited parking access to your spot, then you’re in the right place!

Public Transport

By bus: At Wynyard, choose from either the B1 service which runs every 5 minutes, or the M30. Hop off at Spit Junction and catch the E50 to Manly. Buses run to Manly from the City (routes 151, E70, E71, and 169) from Chatswood (routes 143, 144, and 136), as well as from other areas of the Northern Beaches.

By Ferry: If you’re visiting Sydney from out of town, then you’re going to want to catch a ferry. With views of the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and city Skylines. At Circular Quay, catch the Manly Ferry or the Manly Fast Ferry. Note the Fast Ferry is about twice the price of the normal Ferry but takes about half the time. Catch it if you’re in a rush.
