I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.
On weekends, the beach end of Sydney Road Manly, just off the Corso, is transformed into a quirky family-friendly shopping destination. Manly markets are open from 9am to 5pm and with a variety of stalls selling original items.
Food, clothing, jewellery and artworks are among the goods available. Unique souvenirs such as wooden kangaroo and koala toys from Woodencrafts are Australian made and very popular with locals and tourists. The friendly stallholders are happy to engage with customers and are passionate about selling quality products that are often quirky and unique.
If you are looking for an unusual gift, handcrafted jewellery can be sourced from By Selda, Sabine James and Fine Design Jewellery. Candles, dreamcatchers, wallets, bags and photographic prints add to the colourful mix as does the musical entertainment and face painting for family fun.
