Manly Observer is a hyperlocal news service covering the Northern Beaches in Sydney. Our number one aim is to keep the fourth estate alive and lower Northern Beaches residents informed and connected. We endeavour to be as direct and clear as we can, with a fair and non- sensationalist approach to reporting. It is run by locals for locals.
