We know its hard to find ways the entertain the kids during school holidays. That’s why we will be running our popular entertainment program, including movie nights, Plaster Master and entertainment in our lobby throughout the school holidays.

Manly is packed with family-friendly activities and attractions for kids of all ages with a great selection of parks, playgrounds and safe swimming areas. The Novotel Sydney Manly Pacific team have also put together a list of our favourite activities outside the hotel to entertain the kids so that you are free to enjoy your holidays as well.
