Why have your Hens in Sydney?
Where do we start! Brunch in Bondi perhaps, followed by a quick dip in the iconic seaside Icebergs pool. Then take on the waves with a surf lesson or boat cruise before lunch with the ladies overlooking the Harbour. You could get the party started early with a wine, whisky or gin tasting, or fill your afternoon itinerary with shopping and exploring the suburbs. Get to Glebe for a modern eclectic mix of eateries, bars, bookshops and vintage stores, and don’t miss the Saturday Markets here! Newtown is a bohemian neighbourhood, home to Victorian architecture, street art, multicultural food and entertainment venues, like the much-loved Enmore Theatre. Swing over to Surry Hills for the stylish cafe and coffee scene, terraced houses, wine bars and upmarket pubs. Mosey on over to Manly on the ferry for a breezy beachy vibe, where you can while away an afternoon sipping cocktails and drinking in the harbour views. And if you want to get amongst the action of the busiest tourist hotspots, the historic cobblestone-lined laneways of The Rocks blends the old and the new, with a lively offering of restaurants, bars, pubs, markets and street performers.
Top Tips and Ideas
We’re huge fans of a pub crawl and believe more is more when it comes to a fun-filled hens party itinerary. You could spend days (and many nights) exploring the cafes, bars and lounges across Sydney’s CBD and suburbs. The Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge are obvious attractions, so we won’t go into details. And Paddy’s Market is a popular Sydney tourist spot, located in Haymarket and Flemington. But there are some lesser-known gems to be found. Just a few of Sydney’s best-kept secrets worth adding to your must-see list include Paddington Reservoir Gardens, a remarkable underground public space preserving 19th Century architecture in the heart of one of the harbour city’s most on-trend suburbs.
