One of the things that really puts Manilla above the rest is its aerial sports.

We’ve got hang gliding, para-gliding, ultra-light aircraft, gyrocopters and any other type of glider you can think of. 

And we’ve also got the iconic Mount Borah right on our doorstep. One of the world’s best paraglider and hang glider launch sites. 

So if you’re after an adrenalin-fuelled rush and some outstanding views in the bargain, then come to Manilla. Cause here, the sky really is the limit.

But if your tastes run to activities that are more, shall we say grounded, well we’ve got you covered there too.

Manilla boasts some of New England’s best camping, hiking, birdwatching and bushwalking in some of the most idyllic countryside in Australia. 

Not to mention superb fishing and outstanding water sports facilities at Split Rock Dam and Warrabah National Park. 

And if you’re worried about how you’re going to keep the kids entertained, well you can relax. 

Lake Keepit offers complete accommodation options and has enough activities to keep even the most restless kids smiling from ear to ear. 

Bike tracks, skate parks, tennis courts, pony club, water skiing, sailing, and of course plenty of great swimming.  


So whether you’re here for a blast from the past or a thriller in Manilla, either way, we’ve got it going on.
