This early morning beach walk is easy and great for the whole family. Taking part is not only good for your health, but you're also fundraising and raising awareness for Australia national cancer! You're encouraged to take part as Australia unites to fight this devastating disease.

 

Located on Sydney's northern beaches, the seaside suburb of Manly is home to Sydney's Melanoma March. From north to south, Manly Beach is commonly divided into three main sections known at Queenscliff, North Steyne and South Steyne. In the centre of the stretch of Manly Beach is what is known as 'The Corso', a focal point for community life in the area.

 

The host of this event, James Economides, has been affected by the devastation that melanoma has had on Australian society. James is a dedicated supporter of Melanoma Institute Australia, hoping to raise funds and awareness to help change the outcome and quality of life of people living with melanoma. James, along with the team at Melanoma Institute Australia encourage you to get involved and march to one day find a cure!

 

Getting there

There are a number of parking facilities around Manly, as well as street parking - however, please note that most parking is metered. Public transport options include bus and ferry. All information about public transport can be sourced from Transport NSW.

 

 

What to wear

We encourage all Melanoma Marchers to practice their sun safety while taking part in this event. Sunscreen will be available at all events, but we suggest that you apply your sunscreen before leaving home. Participants are also encouraged to dress appropriately with sun-safe clothing, hats and sunglasses and remember your comfortable shoes.
