One look at glamorous, glitzy and grand Sydney – and you'll fall in love. One read of SYDNEY PRECINCTS by stylist and blogger Chris Carroll, and you'll know just which shops, cafes, restaurants and bars to visit to turn this into a more lasting love affair.
Sydney locals already know the whereabouts of their treasured hotspots, cool zones and tucked-away-little-gems, and often keep their secrets closely guarded. Luckily Chris Carroll is here to help you look past the beaches and discover the best of Sydney: from the intimate cafe hidden at the end of a wharf in Kirribilli to the gaudy and lauded restaurants of Sydney's CBD, from the cute stationery shops of the Northern Beaches to the famous bakeries of the Inner West.
Join Chris on his perfect Sydney day, as he takes you to beachside brekky in Bondi, indulgent interiors shopping in Rosebery, the freshest fish & chips on a rooftop in The Rocks, followed by a spot of culture, Sydney-style, at the MCA and a couple of glamorous cocktails at the Opera House. Dinner might be Nepalese in the eclectic Surry Hills, followed by dancing 'til dawn in the hotspots of Glebe. What's not to love?
With hot tips and insider interviews with the faces behind the places that make Sydney tick, SYDNEY PRECINCTS is your perfect tour guide. Beautifully produced in hardback, with stunning design and full colour photography and mapping,SYDNEY PRECINCTS reflects the vibrancy and energy of this amazing city. You'll never want to leave.
'Sydney is sure to put on a good show! It's all big lights and loads of razzle dazzle, but underpinning that is a laid-back beach culture with a lot of history waiting to be uncovered. You just have to look for it.'
Chris Carroll lived in and around Sydney for over 10 years but, like any true Sydneysider, didn't venture out of his burrow until he started his blog, The Life Creative, three years ago. The blog paved the way for Chris to start exploring the city more, uncovering a host of creativity along the way – and resulting in this book! Find out more about Chris at www.thelifecreativeblog.com
