Greek Restaurant
$$$
“As a greek man, this food does not disappoint. Some of the best greek food that Sydney has to offer. It can be a little bit on the costly side, however, it is a meal that you won't forget!”

Fruit & Vegetable Store
“Better and usually cheaper produce than Coles or Woollies, with a great selection of cheese, meats and non perishables too. Great for the health conscious as well and there is a fish market there too! ”

Monument / Landmark
“The stairs at Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair in the Royal Botanic Gardens are long—there are more than 115 to scale—and there’s a lot of flat parkland at the bottom so you can alternate between bodyweight exercises and cardio up the stairs. Plus, it’s one of the most stunning open-air gyms anywhere—you’re exercising while overlooking the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. At lunchtime on weekdays—roughly from noon to 2 pm—this becomes the busiest set of stairs I have ever seen. Everyone runs here from the city to train. I recommend visiting in the morning or after work instead. It’s also relatively quiet on weekends.”
