20. PLANNING YOUR TRIP
There are several ways to get to this event, however, possibly the easiest is on public transport.

Manly Ferry Services
Manly is directly accessible from Circular Quay, Rose Bay and Watsons Bay every weekend.

Bus Services
A great way to Manly is via bus, leave your car at home. You could also take the car to one of the B Line "Park & Ride" car park locations.

Alternatively catch the Free "Hop, Skip & Jump Bus".

If you wish to ride your bike, there will be additional bike racks at North Steyne.

Parking in Manly
If you do use your car, you are advised to park away from Manly's town centre. These roads become heavily congested, and parking close to the event can be difficult.
