WED 03 JUL 2024

The sparkling Sydney Harbour, iconic Sydney Opera House, bars, cafes and restaurants galore – Wallabies Travel has prepared a to-do list for you during your time on tour ahead of the Wallabies v Wales battle.


As you check in to one of the luxurious hotel offerings including W Sydney or Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, your weekend has only just begun.


Take in the Sydney nightlife by finding one of the CBD’s hidden bars, The Baxter Inn. The low dimmed lights, shelves of whisky and bartenders who can shake a good cocktail will help kick start your night off the right way. Or head to Menzie’s Bar, where they are well known for their Martini hour and scrumptious lobster rolls.


There are endless options to choose from amongst Sydney’s bustling dining scene. Indulge in a must-do experience with restaurants such as the three-hatted Quay or 6HEAD Sydney, with A La Carte menu including amazing dishes such as their Mayura ‘Signature’ Beef Shin, Kingfish Ceviche and their Yuzu Lemon Meringue Tart, beautifully located on the edge of the harbour. If you are looking for something a little more casual with an Italian spin, check out Bar Totti’s on George Street, with signature pastas, antipasti and woodfired bread, enjoyed with a classic aperitivo.

Saturday comes around… and its game day! Take in the attractions and famous scenery at Circular Quay, which will lead you down to the famed Sydney Harbour, where you will be greeted with the notable Sydney Opera House. If you have some time up your sleeve, book a once-in-a-lifetime experience to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge, giving you an incredible views of the world-famous harbour.

Cafes and coffee options are not hard to find, with some delicious menus to be sampled including MCA Café and Sculpture Terrace which conveniently overlooks the harbour for more sightseeing opportunities. Or devour some French pastries and cakes at La Renaissance at The Rocks. Perhaps you might even take a drive to Potts Point where you will find Pina, with your breakfast classics on offer with a twist and a mean coffee or matcha will be on your must-order list.

If you still have some time up your sleeve, make sure to check out the iconic Bondi Beach and the Bondi Iceberg Pools.

And by 5.00pm, it’s time to feel the roar of the stadium as the Wallabies run out for their first clash of the year against Wales. Put your gold and green on and get ready to watch the boys in their first official match under new Head Coach Joe Schmidt where a new dawn for the beloved Wallabies awaits.

With plenty to see and do in Sydney, make the most of your time on tour with Wallabies Travel this 2024 season.
