Manly Harbour Village, QLD: On the 19th July from 9:30am – 12:20pm, the Manly Creative Markets at Little Bayside Park, Manly will play host to the QLD Music Festival project “Keys to the City”. A project that will see Roland digital pianos being placed in different locations around the Manly Creative Markets, so that passers-by and market stall holders, both professional and amateur, can have a chance play.
With a special celebrity guest performer earmarked to play on the day, this event will surprise and delight audiences that make their way to the markets.
Keys to the City is open to everyone from young or old, beginner or virtuoso, solo performers of ensembles of any kind – all you need is a love of music and willingness to share it with everyone around you. Anyone can walk-up to an empty piano and start playing, or you can book in your performance online now.
Manly Harbour Village and the Manly Creative Markets are excited to be a part of this wonderful musical initiative and invite anyone with a love of music to come on down and play with us!

Attracting attention wherever she goes, the “Pirate” ship Notorious is heading for the William Gunn Jetty in Manly Harbour. Notorious is the only re-creation of a 1480s Portuguese Caraval in the Southern Hemisphere. Built out of 300 tonnes of recycled timber, these ships were popular with pirates due to their speed and agility.
Home to Graeme and Felicity Wylie of Victoria, the pair are making their way to Brisbane as we speak. Earlier this year they completed a 10,000 mile journey from Warrnambool on Victoria’s south-western coasts to Port Douglas, stopping over in Sydney and now have Brisbane in their sights.
Notorious is expected to be moored alongside the William Gunn Jetty in Manly for one week, arriving Tuesday 7th July until Sunday 12th July. Visitors will be able to tour the “Pirate Ship” for the duration of their visit.
For detailed information regarding tours aboard Notorious while she is in port, contact the Wynnum Manly Tourism and Visitor Information Centre.
