Sydney’s Hippest Area

Sydney’s George St spans several kilometres, from The Rocks to Central Station. It’s fast making a name for itself as the place to be both weekdays and weekends, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

From the birdcages of Angel Place to the Strand shopping mall, George St is packed with sights and sounds. It’s also heavy on choice when it comes to eating. For a snack or sweet treat, Lorraine’s Patisserie is making its presence felt in tiny Palings Lane. For a meal, options include another new arrival, Mr Wong, or the more established Neil Perry’s Rockpool. Est, located within The Establishment, offers Australian fare, whilst The Morrison Bar and Oyster Room does drinks and dinner.

For more drinking opportunities, head for Palmer & Co. Just off George St, this Prohibition Era bar is found underground on Abercrombie Lane.

The best of George St’s shopping is in the beautiful Strand mall, built in 1891 and home to an array of small shops and cafés.
