Spring has officially sprung, and with the change of season comes a fresh offering of exciting community events in Manly.

Greater Brisbane was treated to A Taste of Manly in partnership with the Brisbane Festival this September. Hundreds of visitors and locals flocked to Little Bayside Park to enjoy great music, harbour cruises, fabulous food, and the picturesque beauty of the Manly foreshore. This inaugural event was buzzing with community spirit, and we can’t wait to bring the good vibes back to the bayside next year! Keep an eye on our socials for 2023 dates coming soon.

In October, we say “yassou” to a slice of Santorini summer in Manly as Celebrate for a Cause returns to Manly (previously Cocktails for a Cause). Enjoy a night of Santorini big band music, Greek Marketta-style food stalls and delicious cocktails at the must-attend event of the social season. Eighty per cent of funds will be donated to The Forgotten Women, a grassroots housing initiative for homeless women over 55, with the remainder directed to a new local community foundation, the Bayside Community Fund (BCF).

Manly Harbour will light up with festive spirit from late November. Join the community in illuminating your boats, homes and businesses this Christmas, with great prizes to be won for the most dazzling in each category! Jump aboard the Cat-o’-Nine-Tails and cruise around Manly Harbour to take in the twinkling marina and hillside homes as you celebrate the end of the year with loved ones.
