Australia Top Tips

Leave a Comment
I've just come back from the most incredible 3 weeks in Australia. Now that's a country that has their brunch all figured out. If you're heading Down Under any time soon, this is what I would suggest in Sydney and Melbourne.


The Well in Bondi. I love how easy it is to eat well in Australia, you will find this gym/cafe right opposite Bondi beach, it's the perfect hideaway for when you start feeling crispy on the beach. I also used the gym here and it was class, the views are amazing and the Dyson hairdryers are even better.

Altitude at the Shangri-la. If you're looking to impress or simply love very, very good food then head here for fine dining and the best views of Sydney. They also have a bar on the same floor where you can sip on cocktails and feel fancy AF.

The Bucket List in Bondi. There is literally nothing better than boozing overlooking the beach, it's even better when it's Bondi Beach and it's full of hotties with surfboards.

To see:
The Bondi to Coogee walk is an absolute must. Take plenty of water, a bikini and a book for when you get to Coogee and make a day of it. Also don't forget to Instagram your pics of The Bondi Icebergs (below) to make all your friends at home jealous.

To do:
I did the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb and it was amazing, the views are incredible and you learn a lot of quirky facts about the Bridge and the city. Guess who knows how many rivets are in the Sydney Harbour Bridge? Me. (I can't actually remember now but I did know...)

To Stay: 
£££ - Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel - comfiest pillows in the world, a cracking breakfast and super close to the shopping district and the harbour where you will find the Bridge and the Opera House. 

£ - Bounce Hostel - cheap, clean, central and full of  fun people who want to get drunk. What more could you ask for?


Dr Jekyll in St Kilda. As you may already know, I love brunch and I have eaten a lot of them. Here is my advice: Pumpkin dumplings on avocado toast. 

If there is anywhere you go for dinner in Melbourne make it Lucy Liu. I recommend the tasting menu. You can get 5 or 7 courses and they surprise you with a selection of dishes. I am a sucker for a steamed bun and these were the best of the best.

Ponyfish Island. Drinking beer (or gin) on a boat overlooking the river? It's a yes from me. Always.

St Kilda Dispensary. Popped in here to pick up my prescription. Biggest latte you can find please, Doc. The Aussie's know how to make a good cup of coffee and this was my favourite one. 

To See:
Melbourne reminded me a lot of East London, you can get lost down little graffiti laden streets for hours and stumble across hundreds of coffee shops and bars.

It really is the best place in the world.
