Electorate of Manly

The electorate of Manly is the gateway to Sydney's Northern Beaches. It is home to secluded coves and tracks, national parks and famous beaches at Manly, Freshwater and Curl Curl whilst only being a short ferry trip to the city's CBD. Manly is where suburban life meets our natural environment and where many people choose to move, raise a family or to retire.

From Seaforth to Fairlight to Dee Why, the residents and families of the electorate of Manly know best the unparalled lifestyle of living in the best part of the best city, in the best State, in the best country in the world. My committment to the people and families of Manly is to always protect the unique character of our community, fighting for the protection of the local environment whilst advocating for the best schools, services and infrastructure the Government can offer.

This is my commitment to you.


Weekends in my electorate are reminders of the timeless appeal of our beautiful natural environment. Beaches, national parks, dams and walkways, the people of Manly, often joined by thousands of tourists, certainly make the most of our piece of paradise. Manly's environment is one of our single greatest assets and is something that I will promote and protect.
