It's freeeeezing out - what should a visitor do?
It's never that cold - but the MCA and Art Gallery of NSW are very good.

I love taking visitors to the Blue Mountains, the natural swimming spots around Sydney and doing the Spit to Manly walk, followed by some great grub and drinks.
Your go-to brunch spots:
Brewtown, The Roast Office, Pure, Showbox Three

The view from the North Head, Manly is still my favourite to date. If you catch the sunset right it is simply breathtaking.

Tomorrow’s your last day in Sydney. How do you spend it?
Spit to Manly walk, beers on the wharf, dinner at Waka then continue the booze train down at the Steyne.
