Like any great harbor town, Sydney takes its prompts from beyond its shores as much as from within. A multicultural metropolis of 4.3 million people, Sydney, with its sunny days and sparkling waters, offers world-class dining, shopping, and nightlife. The ocean seems to be everywhere: sea vistas, surf beaches, and quiet harborside parks abound. “Sydneysiders” take full advantage of this wonderful setting: Life happens on the streets, and any excuse is good enough for a swim at the beach.
With a cultural map in one hand and a culinary compass in the other, savor authentic views and food in one of Australia's largest cities.
Sydney’s not-so-secret ingredient? You’ll find it at the harbor.
Globe-trotters can experience flavors that go far beyond the standard chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry. Experience eel ice cream in Japan or green tea in Florence.
Indulge in this Australian city's memorable edibles.
