Weekend in Sydney

April 2011

We hadn't spent a weekend in Sydney for a while so we decided it was about time. We usually stay in the beautiful Shangri-la Hotel in the historical Rocks area, but this time we stayed at The Hilton hotel. We checked in early (DH met me at the airport) and walked down to Chinatown for Yum Cha at the China Grand. The Yum Cha here is fantastic, in particular the congee and the snow pea dumplings.

We spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying the hotel room.

That evening we enjoyed drinks on the "roof top" Zeta Bar. It was a beautiful evening, as we enjoyed our drinks looking over the QVB building.

We then walked down the road to York St for dinner at the Bavarian Beer Cafe. The food here is fantastic and atmosphere geared towards large groups.

After dinner we headed back to the Hilton and downstairs to the Marble Bar. Originally built in 1893, before being dismantled and rebuilt in the Hilton Hotel in 1968, it's a iconic bar in Sydney. It is a stunning place to enjoy a quiet beverage.

The next morning we had breakfast in the Glass Brasserie. The buffet here is spectacular and I would recommend it if your hungry and need a good feed, this is the place to be.

We finished off our time in Sydney browsing in the QVB.
