Save Place
Paddington NSW 2021, Australia
It was a beautiful evening for a walk down Paddington Street in Sydney. A great place for an inexpensive gourmet dinner is A Fish Called Paddo at Five Ways, a junction of streets in the heart of Paddington.
Save Place

At twilight, hop on a ferry from Circular Quay. Sail around the harbor with no particular destination and watch as the city awakens for the night.

633 Bourke St, Surry Hills NSW 2010, Australia
$$$$
Queues consistently spill out onto the footpath at this little corner shop. A rusted metalwork sign above the tiny bakery café, situated on the leafy Bourke Street Surry Hills, reads ‘Boulangerie’. The creme brulee tarts are locally famous, and...

141/143 Macpherson St, Bronte NSW 2024, Australia
$$$$
Three Blue Ducks draws a queue of Bronte beachgoers every weekend for its famous mango bircher muesli and scrambled eggs with black sausage. Besides the friendly staff, graffiti-meets-indie-music vibe (especially cool at dinner), and the crew...
Save Place
Elizabeth St, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia
When walking through the streets of downtown Sydney, or anywhere for that matter, it is wise to explore the path less traveled. Poets argue it makes all the difference. Call them "local trails." The arterial streets of the heart of Australia's...
Save Place
50 Holt St, Surry Hills NSW 2010, Australia
The Argentine restaurant that took Sydney by storm in 2010—and even rose from the ashes of a fire that originated in its charcoal grill—finally outgrew its Cleveland Street Surry Hills digs and reopened on Holt Street in late...
Save Place
471 Bronte Rd, Bronte NSW 2024, Australia
For many Sydneysiders, swimming in the ocean is a daily cleanse. There's a seawater pool at just about every beach, so even ocean-fearing travelers can get a taste of the salty lifestyle without worries of waves or worse (sharks?). Bronte Baths,...

Save Place
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...
Save Place
186-188 Victoria St, Potts Point NSW 2011, Australia
$$$$
Betel leaves are used as a stimulant, an antiseptic, and a breath freshener in Southeast Asia. At Jimmy Liks, they are how you eat a chicken and smoked eggplant bite-size starter. The little amuse bouche comes with a chili and eschalot relish....
Save Place
Bradleys Head Rd, Mosman NSW 2088, Australia
Travelers should visit Taronga Zoo as much for its harbor views as for the 4,000 resident animals (who see them all day long). Ferry 15 minutes from Circular Quay and take an optional Sky Safari cable car, included in the ticket...
