Discover a world of flavour and inspiration, in the food & restaurants of Sydney
With its hugely diverse, multi-cultural community, Sydney has long been a city that celebrates and rejoices in a wide range of food influences. Without the limitations of an over-riding ‘Australian cuisine’ to adhere to, we’ve been happy to appropriate and incorporate flavours, ingredients, techniques and styles from all around the world. It’s resulted in literally a world of choice for Sydney-siders looking for a great meal!
In celebration of this, we take to the streets and districts of Sydney to explore those tastes that make this such an exciting food city. We’ll start at one of the world’s largest seafood markets, then make our way around Sydney, on a progressive feast of cuisines and flavours from around the world.
This flexible itinerary allows us to cater for all food preferences – just let us know your needs in advance – as we taste, explore and indulge. Finish the day with an early evening drink and canapés overlooking the harbour from one of Sydney’s most iconic locations.
Highlights & inspiration
Begin the day with a visit to the Sydney Fish Markets – one of the largest seafood markets in the world. Here you’ll get an idea of the enormous range of fresh seafood available in Sydney, and learn about the auction system that supplies wholesalers and restaurants throughout the country.
Inner-city suburbs like Haberfield and Marrickville are continually evolving, and in recent decades they’ve become a haven for foodies. A stroll down these streets can take you past dozens of cuisines in as many minutes, and we’ll visit some of our favourite spots to taste and explore.
In the afternoon, we’ll keep things flexible to help incorporate your own tastes, with plenty available to let us stay spontaneous and having fun. Fancy trying some gin inspired by indigenous botanicals, or an Aussie craft-beer? Would you like to try instragram-worthy desserts? Or does hunting for the best dumplings in Sydney strike your fancy?
In the late afternoon we’ll head to Bennelong restaurant at the Sydney Opera House, to sample from their Cured & Cultured selection, accompanied by a glass of wine. We can leave you here to enjoy the night at your leisure, or line up a great meal to take you into dinner.
Sydney Foodie Inclusions: Full day tour with private guide & vehicle; morning coffee, progressive lunch & tastings throughout the day; afternoon canapés and a glass of wine at Bennelong restaurant (subject to availability); bottled water; flexible itinerary; hotel pick-up, with drop-off at the Sydney Opera House or elsewhere by arrangement.
