Community braces for COVID

A new covid testing clinic has opened up in the heart of Manly, next to Royal Far West, with capacity increasing across the region. We will update locations as it becomes available.

  • A list of testing locations can be viewed here. 
  • A list of vaccination locations can be viewed here, those please note there is currently no where to access the Pfizer vaccine on the Northern Beaches.
  • We (editor Kim Smee) consulted a doctor and received the AZ vaccine at South Steyne Medical, which you can book online: here.


Support quality local news

Manly Observer is an experiment in providing non-sensationalist hyperlocal news on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. We cover the big news across the LGA, but with a hyper focus on the Manly electorate encompassing Balgowlah, Seaforth, Freshwater, Brookvale and Curl Curl up to Dee Why. It is run by those living in the community for the benefit of an informed community. We care about an informed and connected community. That’s it. Simple. Thank you for your support in keeping quality local news alive!
