BEST WHALE CRUISING

Oz Whale Watching Have you ever had breakfast with a whale? If the answer is no, then you clearly haven’t discovered Oz Whale Watching cruises.

BEST QUEER COMEDY NIGHT

Slyfox As Sydney’s comedy scene continues to flourish, so too do the venues that accommodate newly emerging and diverse acts. Enmore’s staple queer-pub, SlyFox, is leading the way with their monthly ‘Queer Comedy Night’ which encourages inclusivity, variance and originality. This isn’t like any other comedy show you’ve seen.  From traditional stand-up to penguin themed […]

BEST WORLD CLASS ENTERTAINMENT

Sydney Opera House The building-sized cluster of sea shells at the end of Bennelong Point is arguably the most recognised Australian icon and one of the most architecturally distinguished structures in the world. And it gives as much in function as it does in form. With two large auditoriums, three small to medium theatres and […]

BEST LIVE INDIE ACTS

The Vanguard The Vanguard has hosted shows with up-and-coming acts such as ‘Tiny Ruins’ and is slated to see other rising stars such as  ‘Miss June’ in September.

BEST FREAKSHAKES

XS Espresso The loaded shakes at XS Espresso are the kind of thing that should have a red velvet rope around them and people should be charged admission to see - in short, a work of art! It’s like someone gathered up the leftovers from a kids party and threw it all into a milkshake. […]

BEST PUB WITH A HISTORY

Terminus Pyrmont One of the oldest pubs in Sydney, the Terminus has a Lazarus story to rival the one in the Bible. It was left abandoned for thirty years, covered in ivy, dilapidated and about to call last drinks when it was miraculously restored to its bygone splendour. Many of the original features have been […]

BEST TEA

The Tea Centre Forget high-tea - trade it in for a rice-tea high. Japanese Genmacha tea lifts you up, up, up! Bancha leaves, tossed with pan-roasted rice puffs, sink to the bottom in a steaming kettle. The result is a smooth crisp nutty soup that swells in the depths of your belly. It’s well worth […]

BEST COCKTAILS

Bulletin Place Tucked away in an alley near Circular Quay, Bulletin Place is worth sniffing out. Every day, bartenders bring in a fresh haul of market produce, and a new repertoire of cocktails is added to the menu, meaning you’ll rarely have the same drink twice. Check out their daily menu, and you’ll find combinations […]
