152-156 Clarence St, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia
Sydney’s small bar epidemic is at its peak, and no lane or alleyway is safe from its symptoms. Needless to say, Sydneysiders are finding it hard to keep up with the dizzying number of small bars opening after recent changes to the city’s...

Harbourview Cres, Milsons Point NSW 2061, Australia
North of the harbor on Lavender Bay, Clark Park is an ideal spot for a picnic away from the bustle. On the western end, curious visitors discover the garden Wendy Whiteley created from a landfill. 5- to 10-minute walk from Luna Park. This appeared...

Cowper Wharf Rd & Brougham St, Woolloomooloo NSW 2011, Australia
The meat pie is synonymous with Australia, and no place is more iconic in Sydney than Woolloomooloo's Harry's Cafe de Wheels. What started out as a simple stand turned into one of the first food trucks when local ordinances dictated that mobile...

Commonly known as Oldman Saltbush, this plant is native to Australia and adapts well to arid environments with saline soil. Grain, the new bar at Sydney's Four Seasons Hotel, serves up the fried twigs, and you better believe it: they're...

176 Cumberland St, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia
The Shangri-La Hotel has the greatest breakfast in the world, and the best part is: it's free (for hotel guests). Fruits from all over the world were so fresh and delicious, they set a new mark for quality. There were breakfast foods available for...

2/13 Kirketon Rd, Sydney NSW 2010, Australia

Firstly, go directly to the eight-course degustation menu (often with an extra course thrown in for good measure), and organize yourself a side helping of the triple-fried fries. Secondly, loose fitting clothes are optional but strongly...

Eau-De-Vie in Darlinghurst is regarded by many Sydneysiders as the best bar in town. I was there on a quiet night but still loved the place and people. The bartenders rock, and the drinks are spectacular. It's the perfect place to start or end a...

110 Kent St, Millers Point NSW 2000, Australia
Splendid Sandwiches caught my eye as I made my way to the Observatory on the hill. The silver tables and chairs scattering the outside and inside of the small cafe shop weren't quite full at noon. And I wasn't terribly hungry yet for lunch, but my...

6 Cowper Wharf Roadway, Woolloomooloo NSW 2011, Australia
$$$$
A leisurely walk from Sydney's bustling CBD and inside a historical wharf (constructed in 1910 as an industrial wool and cargo handling facility), you find one of my favorite Sydney hotels, the Taj Blue. Located near the botanical gardens–right on...

Be prepared to wait for your supper, which can be torturous once you see the chefs cooking in the window. I waited 30 minutes on my trip to Chat Thai and was told I was lucky. The best way to experience this well-known Chinatown Thai restaurant is...

Walsh Bay, 11 Hickson Rd, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia
I live in Sydney, but that's not to say I haven't tried a few of her hotels—I've even worked in some. The Sebel Pier One is definitely my pick. It's got comfortable, modern rooms and the thing I love most about good hotels: a pillow menu (who...
