Manly ferry wharf is a wharf serving Manly in Sydney, Australia.


Until the mid-1960s, ferries docked at both sides of the wharf. When the Port Jackson & Manly Steamship Company introduced hydrofoils to the Manly service in the mid-1960s, a pontoon was attached to the eastern side to allow the hydrofoils to berth without their foils fouling the wharf. This was removed when the hydrofoils were replaced by JetCats in 1991. When the Freshwater class ferries were introduced in the 1980s, the western berth was rebuilt to accommodate their onboard gangways.

The wharf complex has a number of retail outlets and restaurants.[1] In 2014, plans were lodged to add a second storey to the wharf.[2][3]


Today, it is served by Sydney Ferries and Manly Fast Ferry services to and from Circular Quay.

Bus services[edit]

Sydney Buses operate services from The Esplanade and Belgrave Street.[6] In the 1980s, a bus interchange was built outside the wharf.[7] It was demolished when the wharf was redeveloped and the stops moved further away.
