Manly mourns loss of ‘kebab flute’ icon

Manly is mourning the loss of our iconic late night “kebab flutist” Mario Geklik, who lured in late night revellers with his tunes and entertained us all into the early hours. Our condolences to his family and the team at Manly Seaside Kebabs.

The employee at the Manly Corso kebab shop worked there for 21 years and had become an icon for the area. He died after a two year battle with cancer on 4 May.
