If you are a self-proclaimed foodie, make sure you visit the Tramsheds. Located in Glebe, the Tramsheds is an old tram depot converted into a home for modern and innovative cafes and restaurants. There is an abundance of choice, meaning you will be going back there more than once! The Tramsheds even hold events such as wine tastings, cooking classes and trivia nights.

Wendy’s Secret Garden

A list of Sydney’s hidden gems is not complete without Wendy’s Secret Garden, located in Lavender Bay north of Sydney. Visiting this spot is an amazing experience, with spectacular views of the Sydney Harbour, this is the perfect place to visit with your friends for a picnic, or even for just a stroll through the gardens.

Spice Alley

Another one of Sydney’s most exciting foodie destinations is Spice Alley. The laneway is located off Kensington Street in Darlinghurst, and it is filled with a variety of Asian inspired eateries where you can enjoy dishes such as Singapore Noodles and Hong Kong Yum Cha. You can sit comfortably in the open-air courtyard underneath the hanging lanterns. The stalls are all run by some of the best Asian chefs in Sydney, so you are guaranteed a delicious feed.

Glebe Markets

If you love unique vintage clothing, hand-made crafts, and bespoke jewellery, be sure to explore the Glebe Markets which are open every Saturday. Even if you don’t find something to buy it is still a worthwhile visit due to its great atmosphere, delectable local street food and live music.

Sydney Harbour Bridge Pylon Lookout

Are you considering climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge but want to avoid the long queues? Well, the Pylon Lookout is your answer. You can access the pylon from the pedestrian walkway leading away from the Rocks. Inside is a small museum dedicated to the construction and history of the iconic Harbour Bridge, as well as an observation deck which provides one of the most spectacular views of the city.

Angel Place

Angel Place is the home of one of the most Instagrammable art installations in Sydney. Located in a quiet alleyway off George Street, you will see an array of mismatched birdcages hanging from above, and you may even notice the sound of birdsong quietly echoing through the air. You can also find some of the best restaurants in Sydney on Angel Place, including Mr. Wong’s and China Lane.
