BEST VET: SYDNEY ANIMAL HOSPITAL

Most of us are guilty of becoming a little too attached to our pets, but this class “A” hospital – which was established in 1990 – understands that we want only the best service and outcome for our ‘fur family’ members. In addition to the hospital owner, the four full-time vets aim to understand and […]

BEST WEEKEND MARKETS: PADDINGTON

There is so much to see at these unique markets - held every Saturday from 10am – that you could easily lose half a day as you browse around the different stalls. Located in Paddington Public School on the shop-a-holic magnet that is Oxford Street, the market at Paddington features a diverse range of Australian […]

BEST URBAN WALK: THE ROCKS

The Rocks is just a stone’s throw away from Sydney Harbour. Its fascinating history is evident in the cobbled walking paths and colonial style buildings. The Rocks Markets provide a weekend’s worth of amusement, or you could tantalise your taste buds at the Guylian Belgian Chocolate Café. Visit the curious French patisserie for tasty treats, […]

BEST TOURIST ATTRACTION: SYDNEY HARBOUR AND BRIDGE

The expansive surrounds of Sydney Harbour are a sight to behold in anyone’s eyes. We suggest taking a leisurely stroll on a pristine evening, or turning it into a day trip as you frequent the restaurants overlooking the water and soak in the surroundings (the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House never lose their novelty), […]

BEST CHURCH: ST STEPHENS ANGLICAN CHURCH

What’s impressive about St Stephens – a landmark in Newtown that has been running since 1849 - is the three-metre high stone wall that surrounds the three sides of the property. The border it creates around the property breathes a sense of mystique into this picturesque church that is rich with local history. What’s even […]

BEST TRAVEL AGENT: TRAVEL SCENE

When it comes to going on holiday, it’s always comforting to have the big things like bookings and travel itineraries taken care of with minimal hassle. Travel Scene is a safe bet to ensure things go smoothly. Its friendly, helpful staff will ensure those important plans of yours stay on track so you can be […]

BEST BUS RIDE: 370

It’s a miracle if the 370 buses are on time, but commuters no doubt have a love-hate relationship with this bus route. What’s not to love on a bus that snakes its way through some of Sydney’s most popular dining destinations including Leichardt, Glebe and Newtown? Despite passing through the occasional industrial area, staring out […]

BEST ANIMAL ATTRACTION: SYDNEY WILDLIFE WORLD

Whether you’re a fan of zoos or not, Sydney Wildlife World offers an up-close and personal look at Australia’s native animals that goes beyond spotting that pesky possum on your roof from time to time (perhaps you’ve never seen a non-chocolate bilby for example? Here’s your chance). Located in the heart of the city, Wildlife […]

BEST VIETNAMESE: SUMMER ROLLS

Although the pork rolls here are flavour heaven, Summer Rolls’ eastern philosophy adds to their success in attracting vegos and health conscious eaters alike. From a banana blossom tofu salad, veggie’s only soup and the popular summer rolls, their clean, fresh and flavourfully balanced menu caters to all. My taste buds were delighted and intrigued […]

BEST VEGETARIAN: GREEN COURMET

Whether you are health conscious, vegetarian, vegan or just like a good nosh, Green Gourmet is for you. There is no meat, dairy, garlic or onion to be seen, and you self-serve and then pay by weight! Walk in, load your plate, pay and take a seat; how easy is this fine dining experience? There […]
