Australian memories


March 7, 2018

Dine at one of Sydney’s top-rated restaurants – best to book your table in advance. Sample Australian wines at delightful bars. Enjoy lunch in a pub beside Sydney Harbour. Picnic in the Royal Botanic Garden, next to the Sydney Opera House, or on the beach at Bondi or Manly.

Visit one of the NSW wine regions; sample wines at the cellar door and eat locally grown fresh produce. Enjoy top restaurants in winegrowing areas such as the Hunter Valley, Orange, Mudgee and the Southern Highlands. You’ll also find award-winning restaurants on the South Coast, Central Coast and North Coast.


Talented chefs, superb fresh produce, and cultural and culinary influences from across the world, have established Sydney as a top food destination.

The city offers many eating options, from casual and affordable cafés and pubs, to award-winning restaurants on Sydney Harbour. Seafood is caught daily in the clean waters of the Pacific Ocean.

Skilled winemakers produce a wide variety of award-winning wines. You’ll discover quality restaurants in the vineyards serving fresh local produce matched with local wines.

The beautiful countryside and waterways of NSW complement the dining experience, whether you are in Sydney or exploring one of the food and wine trails in regional NSW. You can buy fresh local produce from farmers markets and farm gates, and even pick your own fruit.

With a temperate climate and lots of sunshine, eating outdoors is popular year round. There are many cafés and restaurants in Sydney with outside dining, pubs with enticing courtyards, and rooftop bars with harbour and city skyline views.

Some of the best “eat streets” are to be found in Sydney’s vibrant inner city neighbourhoods, such as Potts Point, Chippendale, Surry Hills and Newtown, where there are numerous exciting cafés and restaurants offering creative menus.

There’s a thriving small bar scene in the city, and breweries, large and small, attract beer lovers in Sydney and country NSW as well as along the coast north and south of the city.
