Sydney is the perfect destination in the summer. It’s the time of year where you can spend pretty much your entire trip outdoors as you explore each attraction the city has to offer. Whether that’s a stroll along the beach, an adrenaline-filled activity or an evening of fine dining, Sydney has everything. But one of the best things about Sydney is its food scene.
Hire a car from Sydney Airport and choose from these six summer sensations.
Visit a dining precinct
This city is bursting with fantastic places to eat and drink. There are plenty of lively and emerging dining hubs, including Surry Hills and Chatswood. In Chippendale you’ll find a chic restaurant called Ester. It’s tucked away with its arched openings and dimly lit space. Sweet tooths should consider heading to Black Star Pastry in Newtown. A mouthful of one of these delicious sensations will change the way you think about dessert forever.
Explore a produce market
Fill your weekend with markets! There’s plenty to choose from. One of the most reputable is Carriageworks Farmers Market. This award-winning authentic farmers market is held every Saturday. Fresh, seasonal produce from more than 70 stalls fills the site, located in the heart of the CBD. These delights are picked and packed with love.
Chill on a rooftop
Sometimes where you’re dining is almost just as important as the tastes filling your mouth. Welcome to Glenmore at the Rocks, where you’re treated to 180-degree views of the harbour and CBD from a rooftop. Enjoy these sensational views as you enjoy scrumptious, high-end pub food. It’s the perfect place to enjoy dinner and sunset on a summer’s night.
Go on a gourmet safari tour
Food lovers unite for a gourmet safari adventure! Your guide whisks you to some of the most exotic food precincts in the city. You’ll learn about culinary food and customs while feasting on some of the most flavoursome dishes. Gourmet safari tours give visitors a taste of China, Greece, Sri Lanka, Turkey and Africa, to name a few cuisines.
Chinatown night market
Chinatown is one of Sydney’s most popular international food scenes. Walk just a few metres and you’ll feel like you’ve entered an entirely different country. Here, you’ll receive a good taste of Chinese culture. At certain times of the year there’s even food stalls that line the streets, giving you ample opportunity to sample several dishes. Think Hong Kong, Hanoi, Tokyo, and more!
Dine on the water
Sydney Harbour is one of the most beautiful stretches of water in Australia. At night the water lights up with reflections of the city’s main attractions, such as the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. How else better to spend a romantic evening then on board a luxury dinner cruise with million dollar views on the water?
