Things to do this Weekend in Sydney

1. Check out a New Café

Bronte's brunch scene just got a little brighter with the addition of vegetarian café, Pilgrims Bronte. The team have launched with a 'preview' of their famed menu. With the sample takeaway menu offering up the most popular, vegetarian items – including fresh, sumptuous and wholesome burgers, wraps and bowls.

2. Book a Remote, Rural Escape

Between catching up on the news, scrolling through social feeds, answering emails and browsing the web…we’re constantly on, and always available. More and more Sydneysiders are choosing to disconnect and ditch the gadgets on their holidays and really relax and recharge. And with regional travel across NSW now open from June 1st, now is the perfect time to book in a remote escape.

Sound dreamy? We’ve rounded up the best tiny cabins to book around New South Wales. They’re remote and beautiful, and have little to no mobile phone coverage – and some don’t have WiFi, either!

3. Stay Informed

This time next week we will see stage two of restrictions eased. To help you know what you can and can't do we've put together a quick guide to the new restrictions. 

4. Indulge in a Burger

When it comes to crowd-pleasing comfort food, there’s nothing more satisfying than a juicy burger. Whether it’s stacked with succulent beef patties or brimming with veggie delights, a classic hamburger ticks every box. Lucky for you, Sydney has plenty of patty-flipping burger joints dedicated to the all-American classic. So, for next time the cravings hit, we’ve rounded up the best burgers in Sydney. You are welcome.  

5. Book a Staycation

Just because international travel is off the cards, doesn't mean you can't enjoy being a tourist in your own city.⁠ Why not treat yourself to the ultimate Sydney staycation by booking a night at the glamorous Four Seasons Hotel?⁠ 

⁠The unbeatable view of Sydney Harbour, along with the luxe atmosphere of Four Seasons Sydney, will make this a stay you'll never forget.⁠ Make a night of it by heading downstairs for dinner and drinks at the sleek, chef-hatted restaurant, Mode Kitchen & Bar.

6. Let us know about your favourite local business

We’re looking for local businesses navigating their way out of the restrictions who need some support during this time. Share with us some of your favourite local businesses by tagging them in this post!

7. Look for Creative Inspiration

There's no denying that Instagram is our go-to for creative inspiration. From astrologists and designers, to poets and comedians (we're looking at you Celeste Barber), there's no shortage of talent. Right now, we're obsessed with artists that have garnered cult followings on the social platform. We can't get enough of their beautiful illustrations that have inspired our aesthetic hearts.

So you know where to go the next time you're looking for inspiration, here's our list of the best illustrators to follow on Instagram.

8. Refresh your garden

Landscape designer and exterior stylist (and all-round garden guru), Adam Robinson, has earned himself quite a rep for his award-winning gardens; transforming lacklustre spaces into places that pop. So, whether you have a courtyard, a balcony or neither, Adam guides us through creating hangout spaces that only those green beauties can bring.

9. Read a magazine

Our newest issue of Sitchu Living Magazine is available online. In this issue we get a sneak peek into Ukitu founder, Yvonne Star’s boho-style Sydney apartment. ⁠We’ll also show you how to artisanal dimension to your home with a curated collection of homewares inspired by Yvonne Star’s home.⁠
