It’s been two years since celebrity chef, author and television presenter Curtis Stone and his wife, actor Lindsay Price Stone, were last in Sydney. Follow in their footsteps with this guide of quintessential Sydney experiences, from sensational restaurants and providores to chic boutiques, tiny bars and deep cultural connections.

Bondi to Coogee and beyond

Begin your journey overlooking the iconic sandy crescent beach and cool coastal blues of Bondi before heading south on the Bondi to Coogee Walk, passing the much-photographed Bondi Icebergs. This spectacular clifftop trail winds along the coast, linking picturesque beaches and boasting panoramic ocean views throughout. Ready to refuel over a memorable meal? Stop for lunch at Mimi’s, the Mediterranean-inspired fine dining restaurant on the middle floor of Coogee Pavilion. It’s all about indulgence here, starting with a bump of caviar and ice-cold vodka, then onto fresh lobster, truffles and more.

Elevate your riverside escape

Soar sky high on an awe-inspiring flight with Sydney Seaplanes bound for the Broken Bay Pearl Farm. Located on the pristine waters of the Hawkesbury River, it is the only pearl farm in NSW cultivating akoya pearl oysters. Unwind on a scenic cruise along the river to the oyster leases, learn about the art of pearl grading and finish the tour savouring freshly shucked oysters at the Shellar Door whilst perusing the beautiful pearl jewellery for sale. Make a night, or a weekend, of it and treat yourself to a stay at the luxury retreat Marramarra Lodge.

Indulge in a seafood extravaganza

Ready to learn something new? Discover the art of fish butchery from the expert himself, hatted chef Josh Niland at his new Fish Butchery Waterloo outlet. Home to Sydney’s best fish and chips, mouth-watering tuna cheeseburgers and prawn rolls, plus ready to eat meals and exceptional fresh seafood. Or, step it up a notch with an unforgettable dining experience at Josh’s other venue – Saint Peter in Paddington.

Soak up the harbour views

What would a trip to Sydney be without a cruise on the harbour? There’s no better way to experience the magic of Sydney’s glittering harbour than by boat. Soak up the sights – including a pinch-me moment as you venture under the Sydney Harbour Bridge to spot the sails of the Sydney Opera House with a cruise with Captain Cook Cruises, Lifestyle Charters or EastSail.

Lap up a different view of the city with a stay at Wildlife Retreat at Taronga. This luxury lodge is surrounded by The Sanctuary, a place for rescued native animals to rest and recuperate before being released back into the wild.

Connect with Sydney’s history

Join an eye-opening Aboriginal Bush Tucker Tour through The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and discover native ingredients and foods that have been consumed in NSW for thousands of years. Led by a First Nations guide, the tour explores the Cadi Jam Ora garden, tasting bush foods like the tart Davidson plum, and learning how native plants were used for medicine and tools.

Learn more about Indigenous culture with a visit to Bangarra Dance Theatre, an acclaimed company of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performers that bring the world’s oldest culture to global audiences through mesmerising dance performances.

Shop til you drop

Indulge in some high-end retail therapy with a trip to The Strand. This exquisite three-storey shopping arcade in the heart of the city first opened in 1892 and is still home to top local designers like Aje, Camilla and Marc, Dion Lee, Rebecca Vallance and more. For dinner, make your way down to the new Quay Quarter Lanes precinct for an innovative Korean-style omakase at the eight-seat Kobo restaurant. Afterwards, enjoy your favourite tipple at nearby underground bar, Apollonia.

Hit the sweet spot

Satisfy your sugar cravings with an unparalleled dessert courtesy of the master himself - MasterChef alum Reynold Poernomo. His new KOI Dessert Bar in Chippendale serves up sweets almost too pretty to eat, topped with flowers grown in his mother’s garden. There’s just time for one last margarita, mixed by the experts at Cantina OK! – a tiny bar with a big personality, hidden down a laneway in the centre of the city.
