Welcome to Taste of Manly.

Now in it's 32nd year, Taste of Manly showcases all that's great about Manly's ever evolving food scene.

In the destination that just keeps delighting, we bring you the best of the best. From the latest, greatest and the 'so hot right now' local restaurants, accompanied by Australia's finest wine and beer producers.

Set along the stunning surrounds of Manly's iconic beach front, Taste of Manly offers a weekend of indulgence, an unmissable event for your social calendar.

Held in the heart of Manly along the pedestrian Corso and picturesque Manly Beach, over 76,000 food and wine enthusiasts from across Sydney, Australia and the world flock to Manly beach over the weekend to experience  this exciting Festival.

Taste of Manly is an open event, running over 2 foodie filled days! Enjoy your pick of over 16 restaurant cuisines, discover mouth-watering experiences with over 15 wine and beer stalls, unwind to live music, browse the Sustainability hub and enjoy some of the many interactive attractions.

The easiest way to the Taste of Manly is to use buses or ferries. If you do use your car we advise to park away from Manly’s town centre as the roads become heavily congested and parking close to the event can be difficult.

A road closure will be in place between 4.00pm Friday 25 May till 7.00am Monday 28 May 2018 between the corner intersection South Steyne/Wentworth Street and the corner intersection North Steyne/Raglan Street.

To support the sustainability of the festival and local area, residents and general event goers are encouraged to walk, cycle or use the Council’s free Hop Skip and Jump bus service to Manly for the festival. Additional bike racks will be provided at North Steyne.
