ONE PERFECT DAY IN SYDNEY Only have 24 hours in Sydney? We’ve done the hard work for you – here’s the ultimate one day itinerary.

7AM

EARLY MORNING

Start your day at Bondi Beach. Take a dip if you like, or head southwards on the Bondi to Bronte coastal walk, which winds its way along cliffs between the two famous beaches. You’ll get great views of both, and can look over the ocean from Mackenzies Point. If you’re really keen, don your runners and do it at a jog.

9AM

BREAKFAST

Reward your active early morning by heading to Three Blue Ducks for an indulgent breakfast. Try the mixed berry bircher muesli, avocado toast with poached eggs or hot hay smoked salmon, a popular choice. Sydneysiders love a big breakfast, so join them here.

10AM

MID-MORNING

Head back towards the centre to explore The Rocks, Sydney’s most historic precinct. Explore the streets, closes, nooks and crannies, which were formed in the earliest days of the European colony. From here you can visit Ken Done Gallery, The Rocks Discovery Museum or the Museum of Contemporary Art for a dose of culture. If you’re here on a Friday or weekend, The Rocks Markets will be on, with food, artworks, mementos and clothing all on offer.

12PM

LUNCH

Walk along the foreshore of Circular Quay towards the Opera House. You’ll get great views of the

Sydney Harbour Bridge, too, when you settle down for lunch at Opera Bar. Try the barramundi or the kingfish avocado salad, paired with a local wine or cocktail.

2PM

AFTER LUNCH

Head into the CBD to Pitt Street Mall, the epicentre of Sydney’s main shopping district. The pedestrian mall and surrounding streets host local and international brands along Pitt Street, in Westfield Sydney, and in the heritage Strand Arcade. Nearby is also the Queen Victoria Building, with fashion boutiques and luxury clothing. While in the CBD, take the opportunity to see Sydney from above at Sydney Tower Eye, also within Westfield.

EARLY AFTERNOON

5PM

EVENING

If you fancy getting up close with some Australian wildlife, head down to Darling Harbour to Wild Life Sydney Zoo and Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. Book ahead for a koala encounter at the zoo!

Surry Hills and Darlinghurst are among Sydney’s best nightlife districts. For a small bar experience, try Wyno, an intimate wine bar with share plates if you’re in need of a snack. The Dolphin also has a bustling wine bar with a huge amount of choice – and both wine bars have expert waiters who can guide you to a wine you’ll love. Try something local for a Sydney experience.

6PM

DINNER

Stay in Surry Hills and head to one of the precinct’s best restaurants. Nomad is all about regional Australian food, Toko is a stylish Japanese restaurant with a moody atmosphere, and Chin Chin Sydney is a new addition with delicious Asian fusion fare with an Australian

spin. No matter where you eat, you’ll leave satisfied.

8PM

NIGHT TIME

Sydney’s independent theatres show world-class plays across the city. Belvoir St Theatre is nearby with quirky shows sure to have you either laughing or crying, and Griffin Theatre in Darlinghurst focuses on new Australian works. A little further away, Sydney Theatre Company is the premier group running blockbuster shows.

10PM

LATE NIGHT

Newtown has a collection of neighbourhood pubs and bars if you’re keen to continue your night. Miss Peaches and Earl’s Juke Joint are both popular hangouts for the local crowd, and they have superb cocktails as well as beers from local brewery Young Henrys. ITINERARY

SYDNEY’S LIVING HISTORY Embark on a remarkable journey inside three Sydney museums that bring to life yesteryear through a diverse program of exhibitions.

JUSTICE & POLICE MUSEUM Sa Su 10am–5pm Housed in an elegant sandstone complex, which was once one of the busiest legal and policing precincts in New South Wales, the Justice & Police Museum today shines a light on Sydney’s dark past. “These historic court and police buildings reveal Sydney’s seedy underbelly through displays featuring infamous criminals, daring crimes, gruesome weapons and the stories of police who once walked the waterfront beat,” says Anna Cossu, portfolio curator, Sydney Living Museums. “Join one of the daily tours and dress up as notorious

bushranger John Vane in our family friendly mock trial, plot your escape from our cells or be enthralled by the sinister and salacious tale of the murderer Henry Bertrand, known as “the Mad Dentist of Wynard Square” (for ages 15+),” continues Anna. Adults $12, Child/Concession $8, Family $30 – free for members. Cnr Albert & Phillip streets, Circular Quay

MUSEUM OF SYDNEY Daily 10am–5pm Discover the people, places and events that shaped the character and soul of Sydney during a visit to the fascinating Museum of Sydney. “When

you visit the Museum of Sydney you are standing on the site of Australia’s first Government House, the centre of European settlement from 1788,” explains Anna. Built over and around its remains, this modern museum offers visitors a glimpse of archeological relics from the colony’s first year of existence – the oldest evidence of its kind in Australia. Today the museum hosts a diverse and changing program of exhibitions and events, tracing Sydney’s history from the first contact between Europeans and Aboriginal people to the building of the Sydney Opera House and beyond. “Visitors should

keep an eye out for the gorgeous frocks worn by the felonious flappers of the 1920s,” says Anna. Adults $12, Child/Concession $8, Family $30 Cnr Bridge & Phillip streets, Sydney

SUSANNAH PLACE MUSEUM Daily 2–5pm (access by guided tour only) Located in The Rocks, the Susannah Place Museum is a small row of brick and sandstone terraces that were once home to more than 100 families. “The four houses are an amazing and rare document of how working class people lived from the 1840s to the 1970s,” says Anna. In fact, many of the original fabrics and finishes have been left untouched, including a single wall with layer upon layer of peeling wallpaper. The modest interiors and rear yards illustrate the associated

restrictions of 19th century inner city life. “To avoid disappointment make sure you arrive a little earlier to book your spot on one of the guided tours and browse in the recreated corner shop. Bookings can be made on 02 9241 1893,” adds Anna. Adults $12, Child/Concession $8, Family $30 – free for members 58-64 Gloucester Street, The Rocks

CONTENTS

THIS WEEK IN AUSTRALIA Welcome to the autumn issue of This Week in Sydney! This issue is jam-packed with everything you need to know about what’s happening around the city and beyond. You’ll be spoiled for choice this season as the city comes alive with an array of events, including Vivid Sydney and Handa Opera on the Harbour. And when you’re done exploring the harbour, Manly and Bondi beaches, or even the Blue Mountains, uncover Sydney’s living history with Sydney Living Museums (p. 8).
