Dining precincts in Sydney
Discover delicious cuisine from around the world in Sydney’s hottest dining precincts. From tasty ‘eat streets’ and the heritage Tramsheds to bustling Chinatown and waterside promenades such as Barangaroo, your tastebuds are in for a treat with the harbour city’s extraordinary culinary delights.
One of the hippest dining streets is in Chippendale, an inner Sydney neighbourhood. On Kensington Street are enticing restaurants and Spice Alley, a laneway. Across two iconic heritage-listed buildings is the Old Clare Hotel, home to the acclaimed Automata. Other popular ‘eat streets’ include:
- Church Street in Parramatta
- John Street in Cabramatta
- King Street in Newtown
- Norton Street in Leichardt
- Crown Street in Surry Hills
There are several delectable streets in art deco Potts Point. On tree-lined Macleay Street are Apollo, Billy Kwong and Monopole, to name just a few. Llankelly Place is a hip laneway, and there are places to eat along Challis Avenue and Victoria Street, where colonial stairs lead down to Woolloomooloo.
The heritage-listed Finger Wharf in Woolloomooloo is a lovely waterfront dining location. You can walk from the wharf to Mrs Macquaries Point for breathtaking views of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the world’s largest steel arch bridge.
A stroll away is the busy city centre. Here, you’ll find food courts and restaurants in colonial arcades, laneways and gleaming towers. The historic Rocks is another popular dining area, with plenty of scrumptious choices and some of Australia’s oldest pubs. There are walking tours and museums, too.
You can take a ferry from Circular Quay to Barangaroo, where restaurants dot the waterfront. The wonderfully designed Barangaroo House is three levels of temptations. You can walk along the promenade to Darling Harbour for more tasty choices and the amazing Sea Life Sydney Aquarium.
Near the world-famous Bondi Beach is Hall Street, home to a yummy range of eateries. Or hop on a harbour ferry to Manly for restaurants and cafes at Manly Wharf and alongside Manly Beach. Elsewhere in Sydney’s north, check out the charming ‘eat streets’ in Crows Nest and Chatswood.
