Over the Christmas break I went to Sydney to visit family, chill out and have an all round fab time. As well as to spend some cute times with my little baby niece, who is absolutely gorgeous in my opinny.
SO, when I head to Sydney to visit the fam, I always stay in Paddington. It’s a suburb of Sydney about 3kms from the city.
I love Paddington! The nearby Oxford Street and Five Ways is lined with beautiful boutiques showcasing Australian designers and yummy cafes/restaurants.
Keeping active is so important to me whilst away so throwing myself out of bed early and hitting the pavement for a walk in Centennial Park is always on the agenda. Centennial Park is super vast, beautiful and definitely worth a visit, there are also a number of eateries to wander through and stop for brekky or lunch. The greenhouse is my fav for an infusion of Moroccan goodness. If you really want to push the active boundaries when you’re on holiday the coastal Bronte to Bondi walk will be right up your alley.
Walk the streets of Paddington. You seriously can’t go wrong strolling through the stunning streets lined with Victorian terrace houses.
Mix with the locals and stop by Wolf, Not Just Coffee or SvenSan for a coffee or a bite to eat.
With views to be adored, open-air rooftop bars are a plenty in Sydney. Some of my favourites to grab a cocktail are The Light Brigade, Coogee Pavilion and East Village Hotel.
The Paddington (or Paddo) Markets are a local favourite and feature clothing, accessories and of course plenty of food stands for your taste buds.
A visit to Rose Bay, Shark Bay, Bronte or Coogee is also something to stick on that to do list.
Feelin fancy and a little cashed up, book a Sydney Seaplane to take you over the water to dine at Jonah’s Restaurant, Whale Beach. Yes, this one is a little extra, but it’s definitely something special.
So here you have it, a real quick roundup of some of my favourites things to do whilst visiting Sydney.
Lots of love,
