The easiest way to the Manly Food, Wine & Sustainability Festival 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 30th May till 7.00am Monday 2nd June 2014 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.
