Camp Manly was the informal name of the holiday camping area in Lota in the original estate of William Duckett White’s Lota House (1863). The southern area of Manly became a seaside resort with, first, regular streamer runs between Brisbane Town and Manly, and then in 1889 the railway link to Wynnum-Manly.
