29 Places To Go In Sydney With Your Girl Gang

Ladies, assemble.

Posted on

1. The Finders Keepers Markets, Australian Technology Park

Held over three days in May, and again in December, these markets are the ultimate mix of music, food, art and design. Get ready to spend up big and leave feeling super ~inspired~ to start making some magical stuff of your own.

2. Dr Faustus, Surry Hills

There's one thing that makes this cafe better than any other you've been to, and that's the inclusion of "cereal milk" on the menu. This little treat is exactly what you're hoping it is - a glass of milk infused in your favourite cereal.

3. Work-Shop, Redfern

With classes on everything from collaging to watercolour painting to knitting to lomography, if you and your gang love craft more than art, book a workshop immediately.

4. Cinema Paris, Moore Park

For those nights you and your squad feel like being the most ~sophisticated~ versions of yourselves, and are in the mood for something a little arty.

5. House Of Yoga, Redfern

Beyond your regular Vinyasa Flow classes, House of Yoga also offered AntiGravity yoga. Classes go for an hour and a half and, as assumed, take part up in the air, instead of down on the mat.

6. I Scream Nails, Newtown

Get the most memorable mani of your lives, and catch up at the same time.

7. The Cliff Dive, Darlinghurst

In one of the greatest things to ever happen to Sydney nightlife, burger lords Mary's have just started selling tasty kebabs at Cliff Dive every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. If your nights out dancing generally end with a kebab, this makes things easier.

8. Bondi Bowling Club, Bondi

Barefoot bowling with beers and your besties. It's almost too good a combo.

9. Pagoto Gelato and Waffle House, Marrickville

This newly opened gelato spot is set to rival everyone's favourite Messina, with 36 flavours, of which half are traditionally greek. They do waffles too, which obviously makes everything much, much sweeter.

10. Sydney Dance Company, Sydney

Hip hop dancing for beginners - book it. Book it real good.

11. McIvers Baths, Coogee

The last remaining women's only ocean pool in Australia, this spot's perfect for the ultimate girls-only hang.

12. Sydney Chocolate School, Mosman

Hustle up a group of six or more and book a private course, learning how to make pink champagne truffles and other cocoa treats.

13. Eau De Vie, Darlinghurst

Hidden through a hotel lobby, with no signage to be seen, this fancy pants bar is a great place to enjoy a cocktail - or learn to make a mean one if you sign up for a class.

14. Buffalo Dining Club, Darlinghurst

They serve pasta out of a giant wheel of cheese here. That is explanation enough.

15. Sydney Trapeze School, St Peters

Because if you're nervous to live your circus dream, best to do so with someone you're not scared to make a fool of yourself in front of.

16. Goros, Surry Hills

With arcade games, karaoke, a top notch bar and a menu that includes late night instant ramen, this is proof that Japanese food can perfectly suit that dive bar feel.

17. Ananas, The Rocks

Whether you're feelin' super fancy or have something big to celebrate, the Ananas champagne brunch is the classiest thing you can do with your crew.

18. Centennial Park, Eastern Sydney

Make your picnic extra special by getting it catered by the Sydney Picnic Co. and turn your average day out into a gourmet feast.

19. Good God Small Club, Sydney

WIth Beyonce dance classes, Mean Girls trivia and bao creations you once thought only possible in dreams, Good God is a guaranteed fun night out.

20. Mizuya, Sydney

Japanese food, karaoke, test tube shots and a mix-your-own cocktail jug menu. You literally can't go wrong with a girl's night here, as long as you make a strict "no filming" rule.

21. Grandma's Bar, Sydney

Just like Grandma's house, but with cocktails and much less lighting.

22. Bondi to Bronte walk, Bondi and Bronte

Turn your weekly catch-up into a walking meeting along the coast.

23. Nourishing Quarter, Redfern

With pretty mismatched plates, patterned table clothes and enough kitsch decor to fill the homes of three grandmas, this is the kind of cute place you need to share with someone who will find it as sweet as you do. Beyond the low-lighting and copious images of the Queen, this is also the perfect place for the vegetarian in your group.

24. Murray Rose Pool, Woollahra

Also referred to as Redleaf Pools, this is the ultimate swim spot when you can't be bothered dealing with the actual beach. The kiosk is a few metres back from the sand and there's plenty of shade for reading, and gossiping out of the sun.

25. The Nail Lab, Darlinghurst

Spend the afternoon getting the best pedicure of your life at this boutique nail salon.

26. Bondi Farmer's Markets, Bondi Beach

Buy fresh flowers, taste some cheese and grab a juice or snack to eat on the grass.

27. The Winery Champagne Room, Surry Hills

Located upstairs at The Winery, this is the best place to order a bottle of Perrier Jouet and a side of fresh oysters.

28. Stand Up Paddleboarding, Rose Bay

Stand up paddleboarding is at least ten times more fun with people who are likely to be just as uncoordinated as you are.

29. The Victoria Room, Darlinghurst

A Sydney institution for a reason - if high teas are your thing, you need to visit here.
