Manly Marina

 

Manly Marina is a great place to get sunrise shots with all of the boats in the foreground  and the Sun rising behind them. It is also a good spot for night shots especially with a full moon on the Horizon.

Facilities:

The Marina is located just  near the main shopping precinct for manly and therefore has most of the facilities right at hand.

Best time:

I think sunrises from here with the yachts and boats in the fore ground are the best
