My guide to a perfect day in Sydney

November 30, 2016

Wake up, put your sneakers on, grab a takeaway coffee (organic of course, we are in Bondi Beach after all! ) and head for the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk, arguably Australia’s most spectacular coastal pathway. Revel in gorgeous bays, amazing vistas and never ending horizons; this is Sydney at it’s most spectacular. Walk back to Bondi Beach and take a dip at the unique Icebergs swimming pool – sure to be an Instagram worthy picture!

After a refreshing swim and a vitamin D top up, head upstairs to the beautiful Icebergs Dining Room and Bar for a spot of lunch. With a luxe regional Italian flavour, best of Australian produce and view to die for, this restaurant is a Sydney institution not to be missed. Order oysters and ink spaghetti with crab while you sip on a cocktail and watch whales, dolphins or surfers frolic on the beach below

Take a taxi into the city and head for the Art Gallery of New South Wales. With collections of Australian, European , Asian and contemporary art plus riveting exhibitions on loan from around the world, it is a blend of Australasia culture that needs to be experienced. After you’ve got your fill of artistic beauty, cross the road into the Botanical Gardens and take a stroll whilst taking in many unique species of Australian flora.

Once in the city, make a visit to Agent Provocateur’s spectacular Westfield Sydney store and try on an array of naughty but nice lingerie and accessories. Every woman needs beautiful underwear for that special occasion- I love Agent Provocateur’s blend of quality and whimsical sexiness. Can you tell I feel comfortable here? ; )

Sydney boasts an incredible harbour and what a better way to see it then from a completely refurbished 44 metre European style boat with 3 decks in the style of Hollywood’s Golden age and elegance of vintage cruising. Seadeck is the perfect way to take in the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge whilst floating through a sunset, listening to beats and noshing on a lobster roll. Purchase tickets at least 3 weeks ahead to avoid disappointment.

Kick on at Sydney’s original small bar and club- Goodbar. Newly redeveloped, it is all about fancy cocktails upstairs and club dancing downstairs. Escape Sydney’s draconian lock out laws in this musical heaven and listen to some of the best homegrown and international djs as you boogie on down till the wee hours of the morning.
