I have been away from Sydney for so long, due to travel. I love Sydney, despite all the stupid politics going down and lockout laws destroying the night life culture that used to make the city so unique and bubbling with life.
But there are still flecks of hope through the Keep Sydney Open Campaign. They, along with all the people who care about the personality of the city being crushed, are taking matters to the streets. With amazing protests, and finally some results are coming from their tireless work to keep Sydney open, friendly, welcoming and full of life!
But, if you are visiting Sydney and want a break from the big sights, to see some local spots that will not only impress, but improve your experience in Sydney check out my list below.
I have a few special places that I always return to when I am there now, from ice cream parlours, to bars, restaurants and stunning parks to spend hours just soaking up the sun and reading a good book.
For some lovely beach hang outs see...
