Must Do

VORACITY is it the way flavours of different cultures are added to fresh local produce from the land and sea, and then blended to perfection that makes the city taste unique.


Sydney’s foodies, locals and visitors escape indoors during the colder months to experience the best of winter dining. Menus change, offering more seasonal ingredients and the experience of eating out becomes altogether different. If it’s a steaming bowl of soup, a perfectly cooked Wagyu steak with mashed potato or a perfect fusion of cuisines from a world-class chef that you can’t put into words, chances are you’ll find it here.

Sydney serves up some of the best restaurant and café experiences in the country. From breakfast in The Rocks, overlooking the Harbour Bridge, to lunch on Glebe Point Road as the busy Saturday market bustles outside, winter dining has never been so enjoyable. Even huddled under a cosy heated lamp, you’ll enjoy an al fresco meal like no other.

There’s also been a rise in wine bars opening their doors in recent years. Cosmopolitan, stylish and low key, a Sydney wine bar is the perfect spot to lounge away the hours. Open a bottle of red, order a cheese and meat platter, sit back and relax. It’s all about the taste. It’s all about the experience.

It’s what makes Sydney so… Sydney.
