Make an effort to drive or catch a bus up to Sydney's tropical haven, Palm Beach. Nothing beats the elegant but casual waterfront restaurant, The Boat House. For those who haven't been to Sydney it will feel you've been let in on a secret. Breakfast and lunch options are fresh and seasonal. Choose from local prawns, beer battered fish and chips or a beautiful salad, add a sparkling wine to that order and call it a perfect day. After lunch, hike up to the Palm Beach lighthouse for the incredible view.
