Cozy, small cinema located just a few metres from the Opera House. I love the Sundate: On Sundays, if you go with your partner/ friend you just pay $20 dollars and you can enjoy plenty of deals to treat yourself. On top of everything, you are allowed to purchase any wine or beer and enjoy it while you are watching the movie.

I love going to Kinokuniya Bookstore in The Galleries Victoria Building. It’s massive – you could get lost in all the different sections. The cooking and chef section is the best in Australia, such a huge variety. Black Star Patisserie now have a little store inside too. What could be better than books and cake?

Wendy’s Secret Garden
One of my favourite places to visit in Sydney. Two ferry stops away, grab a coffee and a book and enjoy the serenity. Walk up to Blues Point Road and visit the book shop. Talk to the owner Helen she has some amazing stories to share and is also one of the few book stores to sell the beautiful secret garden coffee table book.

The Strand Arcade
I love the Strand and the Queen Victoria Building for the mix of upmarket Australian designer fashion, beautiful architecture, lovely cafes & restaurants, and even high street fashion like TopShop.

Observatory Hill Park
Have a seat and relax at this park which gives you a beautiful viewpoint of the Harbour and North Sydney. The best time to go is at the end of the day during the sunset.

Snorkeling at Shelly beach
Go snorkeling at Shelly Beach. Near Manly Beach is this hidden little gem. It’s a 10-minute walk south along the coastline path from the Manly Surf Club. BYO snorkels and head out to the right-hand side of the bay where it opens into the ocean. It’s a marine park full of beautiful fish, especially the large blue groper, and you may even see wobbegong sharks and stingrays in the deeper water. Here you’ll find some of the best snorkeling in Sydney – and it’s completely free!

If you like the smell of old books there’s a great little bookshop in the city called Elizabeth’s. They sell mostly pre-loved books. The books have a small, handwritten summary of what the book is about and why they recommend you read it. It’s a great place to find a book for a bargain price too.
