Long weekend! Woohoo....


Most of your friends will be out of town and you are the only one being stuck in the city and unsure of what to do? Don't stay at home and DO LAUNDRY!!! Let's get together and enjoy some outdoor activities:

Walk + Picnic/swim at Collins Flat Beach + Immerse yourself in Jazz festival at Manly beachfront.

★ Collins Flat Beach: one of Sydney's least-visited beaches, despite being just 1.3km from the Manly Wharf. The trick is it's only accessible on foot — or by boat. You can't exactly swim under the waterfall, but you can partake in the slightly surreal experience of standing in it — or behind it — while looking out at Sydney Harbour. As far as a post-swim shower goes, it's tough to beat. Plus there are fairy penguins.

★ Many Jazz Festival: is first and foremost a music festival - a real celebration of sound. But it is also a celebration of Australia’s beach culture, good food, great times and especially the wonderful Manly vibe. What better place to do so than right here at the beautiful beachfront?
