24 Hours in… Sydney

One of Adelaide’s favourite holiday destinations, the beautiful city of Sydney is a vibrant hub of culture, cuisine and pristine coastline. Whether you’re travelling for work, popping up for the weekend or just stopping over, our east coast capital boast endless options for entertainment and sensory delight. We know that although exciting, all the choices can be a little overwhelming when you’ve only got 24 hours, so here is CLIQUE Mag’s edit of Sydney must-sees.

8am

Rise early to take a dip in the heated rooftop pool of the Primus Hotel on Pitt Street. An impressive urban resort, you will be surrounded by towering skyscrapers while relaxing in the chic indoor-outdoor space.

9am

Stroll around the corner to Castlereagh Street where you’ll find modern Greek restaurant Alpha who offer a surprisingly delicious casual breakfast among the chic island inspired interiors. Or order a coffee on the run from their buzzing takeaway bar.

10am

Grab your coffee and walk through the centre of Hyde Park, Sydney’s mid-city garden. With tree lined pathways and water fountain features, you will be able to glimpse the famous Centrepoint Tower through the foliage.

10.30am

Make your way through the domain and stop in at the Art Gallery of NSW to catch the current exhibition or hear an artist-curated talk.

11.30am

Continue along the water past Andrew Boy Charlton Pool, that offers captivating views of Woolloomooloo wharf and the massive navy ships that park just across the water.

12pm

Follow the path around Mrs Macquarie’s Chair and through the Botanic Gardens to Circular Quay and board a ferry bound for Manly.

12.30pm

Head straight to Manly Fish Café for takeaway fish and chips that should be eaten across the road on the beachfront with legs dangling over the sea wall.

1.30pm

Wander back down the corso and explore the little side streets where you’ll find stores filled with amazing fashion finds and one-of-a-kind homewares.

3pm

Re-board the ferry back to Circular Quay and be prepared for one of the most breathtaking views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge that the city has to offer.

4pm

Rest your weary feet with a pre-dinner drink at Opera Bar. Nestled right on the water under the Opera House, the view stares straight back at Sydney’s most famous icon. You can never have too much bridge!

 

6pm

Sit down for an early dinner at Bennelong to capture the golden light and glittering views of the city as the sun goes down behind the buildings.

8pm

Head into the concert hall to see a performance by The Australian Ballet or Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

11pm

Uber back to the Primus Hotel for a nightcap in the stunning lobby bar.

12am

Sink into the ultra-comfy beds to dream of your day and perfect city escape.
