Win a $100 HotelClub Voucher towards your own ultimate Sydney weekend – read on and find out how you can plan your own ultimate Sydney weekend.
I was recently asked what my ultimate Sydney weekend would look like and it took me a while to answer – there are just so many options. I have finally settled on a weekend that pretty much revolves around the harbour. I walk by it every day and I never get tired of seeing it. If you are a visitor to Sydney I think the weekend I have come up with below would be a great way to spend your time in our fair city. If you are a local why not play tourist for a few days and remind yourself just how lucky we are to live here!
My Ultimate Sydney Weekend
I would start the day with a sunrise walk around the Sydney Botanic Gardens or the harbour foreshore (you can run if that’s more your style). I love watching Sydney Harbour come to life. This walk also offers plenty of great photo ops along the way so I can indulge my Instagram addiction and torture my friends too.
Next, to feed the appetite all that early morning activity has given me I would jump on the free bus (555) and head downtown to Chinatown for a Yum Cha breakfast to rival those found in Asia. There are plenty of good options but if you are not sure where to eat – check out this post of an old Sydney favourite Marigold restaurant on Simon’s Food Favourites, I also like Zilver in Pitt Street. The Palace in Piccadilly Centre is a good option if you don’t want to head all the way downtown.
Once fortified it would be time for some shopping, Market City and Paddy’s Market are right by Chinatown and offer a chance to grab a bargain or two. If my finances are healthy I might hit the big brands in Pitt Street Mall and Westfield.
