Parking in Manly

One Council – One Beach Parking System

Under the new Northern Beaches Council, residents displaying a Pittwater, Warringah or Northern Beaches parking permit have free parking at over 40 locations on the Northern Beaches.

Manly residents will receive by mail a parking permit sticker in the next three weeks.

Former Manly Council residents who park in the former Pittwater and Warringah Council areas need to buy a parking ticket until they receive the new parking permit sticker.

Some restrictions apply to a few locations.
