Sydney in a Week

August 17, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This past week my brother and mom came out to Sydney for a visit. My job was to pack all the city highlights into six days. Here's how it went:


Even with three meals a day you can't possibly fit all the cute cafe and fabulous restaurant meals you want in your schedule - but it sure is fun to try! For breakfast we visited all my favourites: Kawa, Brekky Art, Bruschetteria, Robocog, Lumiere, and Ampersand.


Beer, wine and cocktails - we didn't hold back! Near my studio we did a wine tasting at The Winery. It was one of the most intimate, relaxed and fun wine tastings I have ever been to. For beer tasting we went to Red Oak in downtown Sydney and The Local Taphouse in Darlinghurst, just a few blocks from where I live. If you're feeling like spirits and don't mind spending $18 on a cocktail the place to do it is Icebergs, where you can do it in style!

The Beach

The beach is a 30 minute bus ride from downtown Sydney, so its easy to spend an afternoon or entire day with your feet in the sand and your eyes on the waves. I took my family on the well-known Bondi to Coogee walk, which is a four mile trail along several beautiful beaches.

The Taronga Zoo

This is not just any trip to the zoo, this is the Taronga Zoo. It allows you to get up close with the wildlife and it offers gorgeous views of Sydney that you wouldn't get elsewhere.

Other Attractions

The rest of our time was split up between the Wildlife Center, the famous Opera House, the Botanical Gardens, Paddy's Market and the largest IMAX theater in the world. Did I mention it was a busy week?
