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.

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.
