There’s lots to love in Randwick, home to a good number of historic buildings (be sure to check out the stunning, Gothic-style Nugal Hall), the University of New South Wales and National Institute of Dramatic Art (alma mater: Nicole Kidman, Mel Gibson) and the Royal Randwick Racecourse, which buzzes in summer as the races and popular music festivals take root on its expansive grounds. And then there’s the Ritz, a beloved Art Deco landmark with an upstairs bar and an old-school vibe. Stroll its surrounds for a great bevy of before- or after- screening meal options at one of the many restaurants along Belmore Road.
