Get fancy at this sky-high brunch at the Shangri-La Hotel
Restaurants Get fancy at this sky-high brunch at the Shangri-La Hotel

Sydney’s obsession with brunch is being taken to new heights at the Shangri-La Hotel. For the first time, the hotel’s lofty restaurant Altitude will be hosting a mid-morning weekend feast that’s as stunning as the venue’s enviable views. From your revered seat on the 36th floor, you’ll get to spy on the glistening harbour, the resplendent Opera House and the bold Harbour Bridge while you get serious about the menu. But before you get started on the buffet or à la carte options, kick back with a Bellini or Mimosa – a neverending jug of these beauties is included in your $95 brunch, or you can upgrade to bottomless Veuve Clicquot NV Champagne for an extra $85 per person. The natural accompaniment to this stellar start to the morning is some fresh Sydney rock oysters from the buffet. Then, back it up with pastries and the housemade muesli and yoghurt. The next step is to pick one of the made-to-order main dishes (yep, brunch has courses, get into it). Choose from brekky classics like the spicy chorizo shakshuka with softly poached eggs luxuriating in a capsicum and tomato bath, or the slow-cooked lamb shoulder with smoked feta, crisp parsnip hash and crunchy sourdough.   Dessert has been designed by the Shangri-La’s resident sweet tooth and pastry wizard, Anna Polyviou. She’s prepared a garden of sweets, from house-made lollipops to macarons, caramel slice and fresh seasonal fruit.  The standard feasts run for two hours, and are bookable across two seatings from 11am-3.30pm

48 hours in Perth
Travel 48 hours in Perth

WA's picturesque capital is a laidback metropolis perched between the Swan River and the sparking Indian Ocean. It might be one of Australia’s smaller cities, but it’s no slouch when it comes to beaches, culture and hidden nightlife gems. Over the past few years the city has undergone a bit of a revamp, with the CBD and Northbridge joining forces to become a central hub for hungry foodies, bar-hoppers and retailer junkies. The surrounding suburbs have also upped their game, with new businesses springing up on the regular. There’s heaps to explore on the west coast, but if you can only spare a couple of days to enjoy the sunny skies of Perth, here’s a few ideas on how to spend them.

Far-flung Sydney restaurants worth the drive
Restaurants Far-flung Sydney restaurants worth the drive

A good meal is worth travelling for. Indeed, the outskirts of town and beyond are where some of our most spectacular dining spots can be found, in locations ranging from riverside retreats to sweeping coastal vistas, from rolling hills to pristine beaches. Some make a virtue of their location, with a focus on local produce, while others are all about the staggering view. Here are five of our favourites.  You can get to them in style using Smove. Sydney's newest car sharing operator allows you to choose between return trips or one-way trips, and is the only operator in Sydney to offer this. You can book in 30 minute blocks for as short a time as 30 minutes or as long as you'd like. The best part of the service is that membership is absolutely free and simple with no deposits, contracts or subscriptions. Visit smove.com.au to get started.
