My Foodie Detour

If you consider yourself a “foodie” expert, or even just a beginner, we have created unique experiences to showcase to you what defines Australian cuisine.

For most Sydney-siders, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We’re loyal to our local cafes, but with a new spot opening almost every week, we also like to stay ahead of the curve. After an early hotel pickup, we’ll take you on a winding drive around the harbour before landing at a breezy breakfast spot in the inner-west.

In Sydney, we take our coffee very seriously. Next on the agenda is the suburb of Newtown, the hub of our ardent coffee scene. Here you will navigate the complexities of our café culture with the help of a local barista. Espresso, piccolo, soy flat white, Columbian cold drip – indulge in your brew of choice or venture out and try something entirely new.

No trip to Sydney would be complete without a visit to our iconic beaches. After all, the city is only a stone throw from them. First on the agenda is a sprawling seaside cemetery, a site that provides breathtaking views of our ancient sandstone coastline. From there, you will be whisked off to three of Sydney’s most iconic inner-city beaches: Bronte, Tamarama and Bondi where we’ll land for lunch at Bondi’s favourite family-owned and operated café.

Here, you will find what truly defines modern Australian cuisine. A real melting pot of influences from all over the world, savour the rarity of vibrant native ingredients. Enjoy bistro-style dishes made with seasonal produce. This is exactly what makes our food culture so memorable.

Sydney is one of the only cities in the world that where you can find the perfect convergence of natural world and metropolis. All you need to do is know where to find it. Ask your guide to open the sunroof so that you can breathe in the eucalyptus in the air as you wind through the hills of the country’s most exclusive seaside suburbs in the midst of an inner-city national park. Led down through a secret street you will emerge at your final destination: a remote beach with panoramic views of the harbour and city skyline.

An experience like no other, My Foodie Detour will leave you with a true sense of having discovering Sydney’s authentic food culture, once a distant stranger. Now an old friend, we have no doubt that you will be counting down the days until your return!
