Man walks from Cairns to Manly, barefoot

Watch the moment Anton Nootenboom arrives in Manly – surrounded by the community – having spent five months walking barefoot from Cairns to arrive at South Steyne on Sunday. Anton wanted to share the message that men should feel free to share their emotions – he raised over $50,000 during his five month walk for Gotcha 4 Life, a Northern Beaches based charity aiming to improve mental health outcomes.

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!
