The famous Otis Redding song ‘Sitting on the dock of the bay’ could have been written at a café overlooking the sparkling water and bobbing boats of Manly Harbour Village, just a 25-minute drive or short train ride from the heart of Brisbane. This one-time sleepy fishing village is still a charming seaside locale, but these days it’s a lively place with a range of entertainment, dining and shopping experiences.

Manly Harbour Village lies at the gateway to beautiful Moreton Bay and overlooks the largest marina on Australia’s east coast, home to the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron and more than 1,700 vessels of all shapes and sizes. Against this nautical backdrop, you’ll find an enticing mix of restaurants, eateries, coffee houses, craft shops, markets, galleries, accommodation and outdoor adventures.
