Trying to be healthy on a trip or weekend getaway can always be hard. I recently spent a beautiful weekend away in Sydney with my girlfriends and I am going to give you the low down on all the cool workouts, health spots and where to chill and unwind after a big day of exploring!
Qantas fly’s direct to Sydney from most major cities within Australia + internationally. Fully serviced airline, friendly and helpful staff makes the start and end of your weekend getaway a pleasant and stress free experience.
PRIMUS HOTEL SYDNEY
From the moment we walked in we were blown away by the amazing art deco them of the old Sydney Water Board building, which has been fully restored to a classic 1940’s era and style. The hotel is centrally located on Pitt Street Sydney. The staff were professional, friendly and helpful during our 2-night stay. The rooms are generous, clean and comfortable. I highly recommend having a cheeky cocktail downstairs at the lobby pre dinner or heading up stairs to the deck and pool area to watch the sunset. If you are new to Sydney or a frequent visitor I couldn’t recommend staying at the Primus Hotel Sydney more 10/10 for service, comfort and location! – Can’t wait to come back.
F45 – PITT ST MALL
Feel like breaking a sweat!? F45 is a functional based training for 45mins, its one of my fav workouts to do. Its also great for travelling as all studios are franchised so you know that whatever class you are going to do it will be a fun and consistent workout. With classes changing daily from strength to cardio you wont need to stress about drinking those cocktails the night before.
Located on busy oxford street in Paddington + only a short uber ride from the hotel. Once you enter the studio you step away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney’s roads. Flow Athletic has a variety of strength, cardio and yoga classes that will leave you feeling stronger, leaner and super zen.
THE WILMOT – Primus Hotel Sydney
Buffet Breakie at The Wilmot located on the grand floor of the Hotel Primus Sydney. Complete with cook to order eggs, freshly squeezed juices and an array of hot and healthy options to kick start your Sydney Adventures! http://www.primushotelsydney.com/the-wilmot
PORCH AND PARLOUR – Bondi
One of my favourite cafe’s even when I am back in Melbourne I dream about Porch. Hip cafe serving creative light lunches and mains. Fab staff, menu and crowd, the coffee is also top notch even for a Melbournian like me. I also love the fact that you can walk across the road to the beach after lunch for a quick dip or a nice little stroll after lunch.
The ambience of Luis Tans is awesome. The music, the lighting and the staff are all absolutely wonderful. The food is a combination of Japanese and Peruvian which was delicious and on point, as there was group of us we had the banquet to try a little bit of everything and the food did not disappoint. The staff are all extremely knowledgeable about the food and cocktails which makes the whole dining experience a little nicer. Highly recommend eating here if you are a foodie and enjoy trying different things.
Pitt ST mall
Just a short walk from the Hotel Primus Sydney. Pitt St Mall Offers fashion and quality at the best price for the entire family, including concepts for ladies, men, teenagers. Some of my favorite stores are located on Pitt St Mall. Zimmermann, Zara, Topshop, Sephora just to name a few! Perfect for some retail therapy.
I love shopping around the QVB building its rich in history and architecturally stunning, the Queen Victoria Building (QVB) occupies an entire block on Sydney’s George Street, and has over 180 of Sydney’s finest fashion boutiques, jewellery shops and home wares, accompanied by delightful cafes and restaurants.
The grand building, built in the 1890s. The QVB was beautifully restored and re-opened in 1986, and quickly became Sydney’s most popular and prestigious shopping centres! I love shopping around the QVB building so much history and the building is beautiful.
- Start your day off with a swim and sauna at Icebergs (the perfect way to start your day!)
- Take a stroll on the Bondi to Bronte walk. One of the most iconic and beautiful walks.
- Rollerblade on the streets of Manly. Rent some skates and cruise the streets!
