Visiting Sydney at the end of this month. When I'm on vacation it always gets to the end of a long day, I'm tired, hungry, but can never pick a place to eat dinner. Help me plan 8 great locations so that I don't starve! Also, any tips on general Sydney things to do would be appreciated (but mainly asking about dinner locations). Details inside...
Where I'll be: central business district, on the south end of Hyde Park. I enjoy a 30/45min walk around meals, so anything within that range is great. But I'm also willing to take the trains/buses to more remote locations.
What I'm after: stuff that's not sea food
(fish, shrimp, clams, etc: yuck). Almost everything else is fine. I'm an omnivore minus the fish, but do appreciate a great vegetarian meal now and again. Regional, ethnic, whatever!
What I'll pay: an average of $30AUD is great, sans drinks. One or two meals above that, say up to $100AUD, is a possibility.
Things I'll be doing: I've tried to plan a major event/destination per day. Here's some of the places I hope to be, weather permitting:
- Taronga Zoo
- Museums around the CBD area
- Royal Botanical Gardens and area
- Bondi Beach 1 day
- Hiking in Royal National Park 1 or 2 days
- Beach lounging in Royal National Park 1 or 2 days
- Whatever else MeFi can talk me into
