Manly Beach

Shark Netting
We have visited Manly Beach a number of times.  The wharf area seems to have been upgraded a bit and there were lots of restaurants.  We walked up through the shopping area and had lunch at one of the hotels near the beachside.  It was warm enough to sit out on the deck and it was rather nice.

At the beach there were quite a few swimmers as the temperature was near thirty degrees.  Manly beach is on a point with the beach on either side of the shopping precinct.  On the wharf side there is a large area with shark netting making a safe swimming haven.  The aquarium can be seen behind this area.
Fort Denison in Sydney Harbour
In the middle of Sydney Harbour is Fort Denison.  This fort was used in the early days of settlement as a place of punishment and confinement for the convict population.  It is now a tourist destination and has a café and is popular for walks and picnics.
