Hey Emily, Building on from Maddie's answer - on the northern beaches, just head north from Manly. As you get further up the peninsula the beaches can get quieter, with more locals. I like Whale Beach​ and Avalon Beach​ but... See More

AAustralia: What is the best city to live between Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra?

Hi Sophie, The Melbourne vs Sydney debate comes up often here. Canberra​ is not everyone's favourite - it is hot in summer and cold in winter. There are no beaches, and there is no "cafe culture" like in Melbourne. But it has its own charms,... See More

ASydney: Where to take parents around Sydney?

To add to Brad's excellent response, there is a ferry that runs from Circular Quay to Shark Island. If they wanted a relaxing day, they could pack a picnic and spend some of the day on the island. Balmoral Beach​ is a nice beach in the harbour that... See More
