Top tips for hiring a car in Manly

About to hire a car in Manly? Here are a few top tips to keep in mind.

Sydney road rules and driving conditions

Before hitting the road in Sydney, familiarise yourself with road rules and regulations in Australia. Remember that Australians drive on the left-hand side of the road, seatbelts must be worn at all times and pay attention to speed limits and other road signs to ensure a safe and enjoyable driving experience.

If you're driving in regional areas, be aware that animals and wildlife can wander onto the roads. Be sure to drive to the speed limit and do not swerve suddenly, as this can cause cars to roll off the road. Plus, full-license drivers in NSW have a legal BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration) limit of under 0.05.

Manly's rush hour and busiest roads

The Spit Bridge can be one of the busiest roads connecting Manly to Mosman and beyond. As a lift bridge and major arterial road, one boat can cause this road to become incredibly congested, adding significant travel time to your journey. Our tip? Avoid driving on this busy road between 6 am to 10 am and 3 pm to 7 pm on weekdays.

Are there toll roads around Manly?

Yes, there are a number of toll roads connecting Manly and the Northern Beaches with the rest of Sydney, including the Eastern Distributor, M5 East Freeway and the Lane Cove Tunnel.

Parking in Manly

  • Whistler Street Car Park (5a Market Lane)
  • Peninsula Car Park (25 Wentworth Street)
  • Pacific Waves Car Park (9-15 Central Avenue)
  • Manly National Car Park (Central Avenue)

Parking is free for the first two hours, with rates increasing every 30 minutes (with a maximum daily price of $48 for 5+ hours). Keep in mind that availability will depend on the weather and time of day.
