Scratching Sydney’s sparkly surface – This half-day luxe foodie adventure begins in The Rocks – Australia’s oldest suburb, where the first settlers landed in 1788 and the birthplace of Australian pub culture. It takes you on a unique journey through the back streets of Sydney’s oldest suburbs and hugs Sydney Harbour’s edge giving you history, scenery, food and drink on one beautiful experience.
Your tour commences approximately 11:00am at your Sydney CBD accommodation where your guide will meet you (alternatively you will be met by your guide at ‘The Rocks’ at an agreeable location).
Pop into The Lord Nelson, Australia’s first pub for craft beer brewed in-house. Choose your style and taste away. Walk through the back alleys of The Rocks and down to Bennelong Point, the home of the Sydney Opera House where you’ll have fresh coffee and morning tea.
Next you’ll wander through the Royal Botanic Gardens – one of the most important historic botanical institutions in the world – to Manta Restaurant on the Woolloomooloo Wharf for locally grown oysters & champagne.
Carry on to the ultra-trendy suburb of Potts Point, your final suburb for the day. Here you will stop for a gourmet lunch in Sydney’s hottest new restaurant – Bistro Rex. Meet the head Chef who will explain the menu, which wines are best suited for each dish and the culture of Bistro Rex
