We came across this gem via Tripadvisor looking for somewhere to have a final meal before heading back to the UK. Was a bit concerned about the queue but it moved quickly and a member of staff came outside to check numbers. In the end...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
