It would be hard to find a college in a more spectacular location than the ICMS campus in the Sydney beachside suburb of Manly. To the north of the College, there are spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean stretching to the New South Wales central coast. To the south, you can see sweeping views of legendary Sydney Harbour.
The historic site of the ICMS main campus is surrounded by 20 hectares of parklands. It is a five-minute walk to famous Manly beach, one of Sydney’s premier surfing beaches. A few minutes’ walk in the other direction will lead you to the foreshores of the harbour. There are harbour side bush walks to explore, extending more than 50 kilometres north and south. Manly also boasts a vibrant shopping precinct and is well known for its cafés, restaurants and beachside lifestyle.
ICMS is also close enough to the city – 17 minutes by fast ferry – for visits to art galleries, museums, the best city shops, the historic Rocks area, and Sydney’s famous Opera House.
Regular transport services to ICMS are available via Sydney ferries, buses and taxis. Currently, no train services operate to Manly.
Sydney buses operate regularly around Manly and can transport you to all Sydney regions. ICMS runs a free regular shuttle bus service for ICMS students from the main Manly precinct up to our campus and also to the North Head Sanctuary campus.
The most scenic way to travel to ICMS is by ferry. The quickest option is by fast ferry which takes only 17 minutes to get to and from Manly and Circular Quay (Sydney CBD). You can also catch the normal ferry service which leaves approximately every 20 minutes from Circular Quay and returns at similar intervals. The trip takes approximately 20 minutes.
