Visiting relatives in Manly over christmas, will be travelling with a 3 year old and a 10 month old. Have rented a house in ELizabeth Beach for a few days over xmas. Any suggestions about places to go/ things to do with the children in either of these places would be great.
Just go to the beach! Manly has an aquarium or you could get the ferry to the Zoo. A day trip up to Whale Beach or Bilgola would also be lovely (call in at Palm Beach too if you're a Home and Away fan, but it's not as nice as the other 2 I mentioned.) A day sailing on the harbour? Balmoral Beach is wonderful for little ones.
Elizabeth Beach is lovely and v chilled, so no need to "do" anything. Just relax on the beach with a bucket and spade (and a sun shelter). If you are a real doer then you could do a side trip to visit the Seal Rocks lighhouse etc, but if you're just there for a few days I'd recommend just kicking back.
