The recently opened precinct of Barangaroo is quickly becoming a must do as part of your Australia Private Tour. Located on the eastern shores of Darling Harbour in Sydney, the area has been restored from a disused industrial site, to now house magnificent parklands, modern restaurants as well as a vibrant cafe and street culture. If you are visiting Sydney, luxury travel companies like Australian Luxury Escapes can arrange a wonderful few hours, half a day or a full day to truely experience the best that Barangaroo has to offer. Here are some of my top picks.
Start your day by grabbing a coffee and tasty treat at Bourke Street Bakery. With its origins from the neighbouring trendy suburb of Surry Hills, Bourke Street Bakery features some of Sydneys best coffee. Relax outside and enjoy some people watching while contemplating your day ahead.
Extend your adventures to the neigbouring Darling Harbour and you will find interesting places like the Australian Maratime Museum,The Power House Museum or the Sealife Aquarium. Darling Harbour has undergone a major refurbishment and today is a well set out, family friendly destination featuring great restaurants and cafes.
To finish off your day, one location on your list of experiences should be Momofuko Seiobo. This 2 hatted restaurant is situated within the Star Casino and is the original New Yorks restaurant first offering outside of the US. Executive Chef Paul Carmichael draws on the bounty of fresh Australian produce to create a 12 course extravaganza which can also be paired with matching wines. Reservations are essential as there are only 40 seats available each night.
Australia is waiting for you!
