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 and is a short walk to Manly beaches, cafes, shops, restaurants and night life.
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.
Getting to ICMS
ICMS is in one of Sydney’s favourite beachside suburbs so there are plenty of ways to travel in, out and around Manly. Regular transport services to ICMS are available via Sydney ferries, buses and taxis.
ICMS is a short stroll from the centre of Manly with its shops, cafes, bars and spectacular beaches. After class, wander to the beach and study with sand between your toes.
ICMS runs a free regular shuttle bus service during teaching weeks for ICMS students from the main Manly precinct up to our campus and also to the North Head Sanctuary campus. View here
Sydney buses operate regularly around Manly and can transport you to regions across Sydney. For travel maps and timetables visit the Sydney Buses website.
Free parking is available on campus for our ICMS students and visitors.
But why would you drive when you can enjoy spectacular views of Sydney Harbour? The most scenic way to travel to ICMS is by ferry. Fast ferries travel between Manly and Circular Quay in the CBD and take just 17 minutes each way. Or you can take a little more time to enjoy the view. The normal ferry service leaves approximately every half hour from Circular Quay (Wharf 3) or Manly and takes 30 minutes. Visit the Manly Fast Ferry and Transport NSW websites for more information.
But this is Manly, you could travel to ICMS by bike, skateboard, roller skates or scooter. You won’t look out of place as you roll along the palm lined Manly esplanade.
