It's always fun being a tourist in your own city and discovering new cafes, pubs and galleries. The Surry Hills food safari is a great day out in Sydney for locals and visitors alike. Chances are you’ll leave with a full belly and a bunch of new favourite haunts you’ll be keen to return to next time you’re in town. We recently tagged along on a safari, to fill you in on what you can expect...
The stops along the food tour change quite regularly, so keep in mind the menu on your tour may differ. On this blustery Sydney day, we began at a health food store sampling everything from cheeses to green juices. We also popped into a couple of Sydney’s iconic pubs, a delicious bakery and a vegetarian restaurant.
While the food was delicious, there’s a lot more to this tour than just great snacks. Throughout the afternoon, your knowledgeable guide will fill you in on the remarkable history of the area.
You’ll be surprised by some of the stories to have come out of Surry Hills over the years. From wandering past the old convict houses to hearing some of the sordid tales of Tilly Devine and the Razor Gang Wars – the area has a colourful past, to say the least!
If you’ve got family or friends coming to Sydney and you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary to keep them entertained (and very well fed!) this is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
