    14 Things To Add To Your Sydney Bucket List For 2019

    This is the year we finally do everything we've always planned!

    1. Have the most beautiful meal of your life at Social Hideout in Waterloo.

    Social Hideout

    People are calling this Sydney's most Instagrammable cafe and it's pretty easy to see why. It's got a flower wall, neon sign, colourful food and ice cream in tiny gold bathtubs. If this is your thing, you'll love the shit out of this place.

    2. Skip Bondi to Bronte and instead walk from Malabar to Coogee.

    Last year saw a new walking path open in the Malabar Headland National Park, which means you can now walk along the coast from there to Maroubra, and then on to Coogee. It's refreshingly empty (compared to the walks closer to Bondi) and you're rewarded with amazing views of sandstone cliffs on one side, and bushland on the other.

    3. Take a ferry out and spend the day on a harbour island.

    4. Grab your mates and dig into a two-kilo schnitzel.

    5. Take a day trip to the Blue Mountains.

    If you don't have the time or cash to commit to a weekend away, you can easily do the Blue Mountains in a day. If you've got a car you can hop between waterfalls, walks and lookouts. You could even take a glow worm tour in nearby caves. If you're going by train, there are stunning walks you can do starting from Wentworth Falls station or Katoomba.

    6. Get adventurous and try a bubble tea sundae.

    7. Finally have that boozy arvo picnic you've always been planning.

    8. Put your creative skills to work and you might even find a new hobby.

    9. Take a trip to the Hunter Valley and get your wine on.

    10. Kayak under the Harbour Bridge for a totally new view.

    11. Admire our city's skyline from a rooftop bar.

    East Village in Darlinghurst has a pretty top-notch view of Sydney to enjoy over cocktails. If you're not really an Eastern Suburbs kinda person, and don't wanna leave the city, check out the new bar Old Mate's Place on Clarence st which has equally good views.

    12. Get real fancy and have brunch at Altitude.

    13. Go to an organic market and have a cooking day.

    14. Spend your Friday nights wandering through Chinatown.
