Whats on in Sydney
Sydney is a beautiful city and a fantastic place to explore. With its eye-opening art, theatre and exhibitions, world class sporting events, amazing nightlife and cultural events, and stunning harbours and beaches, there is truly something for everyone.
The Sydney 2014 Bucket List
From crazy-good views to great things to chew, here are 25 things to tick off before you check out of town.
Kayak at Pittwater - Pittwater
Just a 50-minute drive from the centre of town (off-peak), Pittwater is one of the Sydney’s most stunning bodies of water – all eucalypt-choked hills spilling down into calm, yacht-dotted water that stretches all the way up the northern peninsula. The best way to take it in is to hire a kayak and explore the bays and little beaches on the fringe of the waterway that hugs the Ku-ring-gai National Park. Make sure you stop for a spell on the beach at Scotland Island, Sydney’s only residential island, which sits in Pittwater just a little ways off Church Point. It’s tranquil, friendly, and you may just wind up looking at real estate brochures on your way out.
Join the crush at Messina Darlinghurst - Darlinghurst
The lines get mammoth outside of this Darlo gelato institution, where punters pack in for scoops of Apple Pie, Poached Figs in Marsala and Gianduia (or something from the specials board that day). There are no real rules to the line – just don’t push in and you’ll eventually float through to the glass cases – and we say stick with the crowds afterwards and eat your cup or cone on the Victoria Street sidewalk. Not a fan of crowds? Try the branch at the Star.
Spend Saturday morning at Eveleigh Farmers’ Market - Eveleigh
You’re probably not doing much cooking while you’re in town, but visiting the best farmers’ market in Sydney is still a must. Grab pancakes or a pork bun from celebrity chef Kylie Kwong’s stall for brekky, a slice of banana cake from Bird Cow Fish and a cup from Ritual Coffee and sit in the sun by the long, hipster-studded Carriageworks wall. We love all the musky smells of the Eumundi Smokehouse. Bring a camera if you like dogs: pugs in sweaters, poodles in booties… this is where they spend their Saturdays
Sing a song at Lantern by Wagaya -Sydney
You might not know this, but Sydney does good karaoke. Specifically, Chinatown does good karaoke – and Lantern by Wagaya is one of the best. There’s the novelty of having to go into a big city high-rise and up a lift to get there (it feels like you’re breaking in), and the rooms are creatively decked-out with easy-to-use touchscreen song-selection systems. But the best thing about Lantern is the food: order via the touchscreen menus near the door and gorge. You are the champion, my friend.
