Our Guide to Sydney

Planning a trip to Sydney, Australia can be a bit daunting because there’s just so much to see and do. Here’s a peek at some of our favorite places visited, for a few tips on how to travel the Tea way should you and your family find yourselves in this amazing coastal city.


Doyles Restaurant

This restaurant, in picturesque Watsons Bay, is loved by locals. Situated on its own, almost private little beach, and just 200 meters away from a local park with a massive climbing tree, it’s the perfect setting for taking in the views with your littles. Also, behind the restaurant is some of Sydney’s cutest streets and houses. Go by ferry and arrive just a hop away from the restaurant’s doors.

Phillip’s Foote Restaurant

This restaurant at The Rocks in Sydney is both iconic and kid-friendly. You get to cook your steak Aussie-style on a huge communal BBQ, and then dine under the stars on the open air patio, surrounded by old cobblestone walls. The Rocks is also a suburb well worth checking out—it’s full of Old World charm, hidden alleyways and streets made from hand-laid cobblestone dating back to when Sydney was founded!

Make sure to check out the walking tours while you are there!
