Which Sydney shops do you hit up when you’re itching for something new?

I once spent 4 hours in Anaconda buying camping gear, snorkelling stuff, outdoor games, the lot. My girlfriend was not impressed to say the least...

Drunk and hungry - where do you go in Sydney?

El Loco Mexican has been visited on a few occasions

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.

Where do you take your guest when you want to impress?

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

Special views that mainstream tourists don't know about:

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

Best place for a cheap bite on-the-go:

Soul Burger

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.
