Manly was one of the first places in Australia to get a name. Soon after his arrival in Sydney Harbour (Port Jackson) in 1788, Governor Arthur Phillip began exploring the harbour in search of fresh water.The Tank Stream which ran into Sydney Cove near what is now Circular Quay was hardly enough to serve the immediate needs of the First Fleet, let alone support the farm animals the ships had brought or any worthwhile food crop.Passing near Manly a group of unarmed Aboriginal men waded into the water to greet Phillip's small boats. Impressed with their stature and bearing, Phillip is recorded describing them as 'manly', and the name stuck. Despite mounting an expedition several miles inland to what is now Beacon Hill north of Manly, Phillip failed to find a stream.
