#3 Sydneysider – The Manly Jazz Festival

For this week’s “blogging at home” series, I decided to do a photo blog of the Manly Jazz Festival.   Jazz is not generally my cup of tea, but it was a glorious weekend and I usually stumble across some music palatable to my ears :o)

And the best thing, it’s FREE!!!!

Another great act at the Manly Fig – this is a cool venue, it’s actually a church!!!

Info: The Manly Jazz Festival is held every year on the October long weekend in Manly, Sydney.  The festival takes over the Corso and the ocean front.  The most enjoyable way to get there is on the Manly ferry, leaving from Circular Quay and takes 1/2 hour.  For departure times and other Sydney transport details check out the 131500 website.
