Stroll along the Esplanade at dusk or dawn and one thing will be immediately apparent – our locals love to get active.
Brisbane’s Bayside is attracting an increasing number of health-conscious residents and visitors alike, with local businesses seeing a growing interest in wellness services.
“Our business moved to the area last year primarily due to the location,” says Liz Masen, CEO of the newly relocated Athlete Assessments on Cambridge Parade.
“ Athlete Assessments has been in operation for close to 15 years and mainly work with professional sports, both in Australia and overseas, and universities in the USA. When choosing our new office location, it was a priority to be in a great area so that our staff enjoy coming to work each day and avoid peak hour traffic of the city. From a lifestyle perspective, we love that as owners of the business, we can also walk to work and enjoy the community and village atmosphere as locals!”
Get fit in Manly
Fitness fanatics can get their fix at local gyms such as the independent, family-run 4Shore Fitness. For some outdoor fun and sightseeing, why not hire a scooter from ScooterBike Adventures in Lota? Take a solo trip along the water or enjoy a group ride instead. Soothe those sore muscles post-workout with a relaxing treatment from Endota Spa Manly, or try Spa Wood Traditional Thai Massage. And get back on your feet with a little help from the team at Move Podiatry.
For wellness from the inside out, Manly Village has your healthcare needs covered with centrally located Medical Centre, Pharmacy and Dental Surgery all within close proximity.
And for those of us who are not as sporty, don’t forget that pampering is a great excuse for self-care! Visit the talented stylists at Cambridge Hair Collective to breathe some new life into your locks. Or pop into Skin Revolution Australia for some dermal rejuvenation.
Watch the world go by from a street side café or along the Esplanade, share a picnic & connect with loved ones in Little Bayside Park beside the Marina. Or just sit by yourself with a coffee on a park bench, read a book, look out to sea and breathe deeply. Whatever wellness means to you, there is something for every lifestyle at Manly Harbour Village.
