Shop til you drop: Saturdays must start at The Intersection on the corner of Oxford Street and Glenmore Road, Paddington, where you can browse in cool boutiques and check out offerings from upcoming and established Australian designers.

Magic market: On Sundays you must hit the fantastic Bondi Markets to grab fresh flowers and a range of fresh produce, then take the beautiful coastal walk from Bondi to Coogee.

Cafe culture: Breakfast or lunch is a must at the buzzing Jackies Cafe in Paddington (make sure you order the smashed pavlova for dessert).

Garden variety: Dinner at Matt Moran’s Chiswick restaurant in the beautiful Eastern Suburbs neighbourhood of Woollahra is amazing – we love the beautiful setting (the restaurant has its own kitchen garden, from which it sources a lot of its produce).

Art by the Harbour: On a sunny day there’s nothing better than heading for Sydney Harbour and Circular Quay, and paying a visit to the edgy Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA).

And in the park: The Art Gallery of NSW, set adjacent to the glorious Royal Botanic Gardens a 15-minute walk from the city centre, is also a favourite – and we can never leave without purchasing something from the fabulously stocked gift shop.

Film star: Moore Park’s Entertainment Quarter, known as EQ, is a hidden gem… the cinemas don’t get busy and you sometimes feel like you’re in a private session.

Brunch on the beach: Finally, for fabulous food in an even more fabulous setting, settle in at The Boathouse Balmoral, open daily for breakfast and lunch on Sydney’s lower north shore.
