Fringed by Sydney Harbour National Park and cascading down to the protected waters of Spring Cove.
Spring Cove Estate's limited collection of apartments, townhomes and houses are surrounded by one of Sydney's most exalted and prized natural playgrounds. Below you, Collins, Store and Quarantine Beach form Spring Cove's secluded bay and the natural spring from which the cove draws its name. Walking tracks radiate out in all directions inviting you to explore the coast's lush bushlands, its history, its flowers, birds and wildlife. Stumble upon a deserted beach. Satisfy your lust for faraway places, while remaining close to home. Manly's urban seaside pleasures and ferries are just around the cove, yet here civilisation seems a world away.
Wander down the old Archbishop's Walk to your very own Collins Beach. With its pristine white sands surrounded by swaying trees, it feels more like some remote island hideaway instead of part of a pulsing Harbour city. A spring in the hills behind feeds a small waterfall that tumbles onto the sand, giving Spring Cove its name. If you see the endangered colony of little penguins that call this small stretch of coast home, be sure not to disturb them.
Hidden away and backed by hills covered in dense bush, few people know about the lovely and secluded Store Beach. Rock hop around from Collins Beach at low tide or kayak across for a wonderfully private picnic lunch.
Quarantine Beach is the third in the chain of secluded beaches that make up Spring Cove. The grassy slopes of North Head and a heritage wharf overlook the idyllic beach with stunning views of Sydney Harbour. Directly behind Quarantine Beach is Q Station Retreat's beautifully restored heritage accommodation and Boilerhouse Restaurant fine dining.
Directly neighbouring Spring Cove is Sydney Harbour National Park and the North Head promontory that forms the entrance to Sydney Harbour. Lose yourself in its stunning natural beauty. See native wildlife living in rare pockets of bushland. Follow the bush trails with their spectacular ocean vantage points. From May to November, the park's many lookouts offer an amazing opportunity to whale watch along their coastal migration route.
A beautiful beach with a beautiful view. This picturesque sheltered cove is one of Sydney's best aquatic reserves, perfect for snorkelling and picnics. Wander around the coastal path for a late-afternoon stroll. Grab an espresso at the beach café or venture off the beach and explore the stunning coastal bushland backdrop.
Stroll along Marine Parade to the beautiful Fairy Bower and on to Shelly Beach. Enjoy the sculpture walk on the way, or take your surfboard and head to the famous surf break off the Shelly Beach headland known as 'the Bower'.
One of Australia's first seaside resorts, Manly Beach is an Australian landmark. Its wide patrolled ocean beach is a Mecca for surfers and swimmers alike. Take a dip in the one of the saltwater pools, sunbake on the broad sweep of sand, or get active with Manly's renowned water sports. Surrounded by some of Sydney's finest eateries and coffee houses, there are plenty of stylish diversions just metres from the beach's famous sands.
Just a 20-minute walk from your Spring Cove home, the historic Manly Wharf has been transformed into a sensational gastronomic destination. Dine out in style on the pier, enjoy fish and chips on the sand, or drop in for pre-dinner cocktails.
For commuters, the Jetcat and ferry deliver ultimate convenience. Manly Wharf is also well served by buses to and from Wynyard in central Sydney, the Northern Beaches and Chatswood.
