Cabbage Tree Bay Eco-Sculpture Walk in Manly is a flat, short walk suitable for wheelchairs, prams and strollers.  Cabbage Tree Bay Eco-Sculpture Walk hugs the coastline to Shelly Beach and features eleven sculptures that are designed to highlight Cabbage Tree Bay’s unique marine life and history.

You’ll also pass the historic Fairy Bower Baths where you’ll see  ‘Oceanides’ (1997) by Helen Leete – a pair of sculptures representing bathers enjoying the sun and sea at Manly Beach.

Start at Manly Lifesavers Club and follow Marine Parade to Shelley Beach. Shelly Beach, at the end of the walk, is a sheltered cove making it a very popular family beach. The calm, shallow water and rich marine life make this place perfect for scuba diving and snorkeling. Return the same way.
