Manly is an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of New South Wales. It mostly covers the area of Manly Council as well as parts of Sydney's Northern Beaches as far as North Curl Curl. Created in 1927, although it has historically tended to be a Liberal-leaning seat, Manly has had a history of strong independent local members and support. It is currently represented by the Premier of New South Wales, Mike Baird of the Liberal Party of Australia. It is also located in the federal Warringah district, which is represented by Tony Abbott, the Prime Minister of Australia.
