When you think of Sydney what do you think? For me, it’s always been the tourist capital of Australia and a short trip away on the train if I needed a city fix. The Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, and Sydney Tower are three of the biggest (as in literally, the biggest) landmarks of the city; did I visit any of them? No.
The thing about being so close to Sydney is that we’ve done the tourist thing, we don’t need to do it again. But, because it’s what we know; we often end up visiting the same places and doing the same things.
With Hilton being situated right in the midst of the city, and cities across the world for that matter, these destinations have SO much to offer, and SO much more than your usual tourist go-tos.
Utilizing Hilton Sydney as my base whilst in the city, I was able to really explore the city for what it’s known for; amazing food, galleries and stylish
Starting the day right at the Hilton’s well-known glass brasserie. I’m talking about what’s got to be one of the best buffet breakfasts in the city.
Located in the Domain, and only a short 10-minute stroll from the Hilton, I wound up at the incredible Art Gallery of New South Wales.
Known to present fine international and Australian art in one of the most beautiful art museums in the world, and home to Australia’s most extraordinary art event; The Archibald Prize from May to September.
All this art business got you hungry? Well, if you’re up for it, a short stroll to Potts Point and you’ll find yourself at the growingly popular Orwell Street and at my new Sydney favourite wine bar; Dear Saint Eloise.
As well as serving lunch and dinner, Dear Saint Eloise is really known for its impeccable taste in wines across the nation.
This day drinking has me thinking we need to keep the afternoon rolling! We head to West Hotel Curio Collection by Hilton’s somewhat new and incredibly enticing Solander Dining & Bar.

Located on Sussex Street, this botanical-inspired restaurant and bar was inspired by Naturalist Daniel Solander (1733-1782) whom was integral to the
early documentation and collection of Australian plants.
Specialising in botanical-inspired cocktails, boutique Australian and international spirits, wines and craft beers and with a killer emerald green
terrazzo bar as well as their jungle-style atrium; this place is a must-do on your next Sydney trip.
In the mood for some culinary delight, we booked ahead at one of Sydney’s most renowned French restaurants; Restaurant Hubert.
Imagine spiralling down into a basement lined with miniature liqueur bottles to be spat out into a dimmed restaurant space that tunnels off into sections
of bars, seating and kitchens. The ambience in this place is incredible!
Not to mention the food. If you’re a foodie and this place is yet to be on your list; I encourage you to put it right at the top.
