The Revitalisation of the City of Sydney: Part 1

How our harbour city is being redefined

The City of Sydney has long been viewed as a place where people work, first and foremost. The Central Business District has been just that - the chief place where the city conducts its business. But with covid turning the world on its head, the workplace is fast becoming decentralized, with so many opting to work from home, at least for part of the week. So where does this leave our CBD in terms of its purpose? The answer is, somewhere better, more exciting and far more livable. Sydney is fast transforming into a mecca for recreation, leaving its tired work suit far behind. 

With international tourism on hold, Sydneysiders themselves are coming in increasing numbers to meet up, have fun, celebrate and rediscover their harbour city. Not only is there a vibrant luxury shopping, café, restaurant, bar and club scene, but many of Sydney’s most cultural icons are located within easy walking distance of each other. 

The attractions of the City of Sydney are as many and varied as there are days in a year, so you will never be short of ideas to stimulate, educate, socialize, shop and dine. As we emerge from the radical changes brought about by the pandemic, we are all looking forward to getting out more, and with things certainly opening up, nowhere is this more evident than in the CBD. Sydney City’s cultural institutions - its iconic Opera House, Museum of Contemporary Art, Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney Lyric, Capitol, State, Metro and Roslyn Packer Theatres, Australian Museum and so many more - are opening their doors with great optimism towards a post-covid and lock-down law reality. 

This shift of focus is creating exciting new infrastructure, with the state government announcing $20million in additional funds for the $200million CBD Revitalisation Strategy. With the decentralization of traffic that has resulted from rerouting around and below the Sydney CBD, congestion is fast becoming a thing of the past. There are plans to redesign Circular Quay by removing the Cahill Expressway and relocating the rail line, thereby reconnecting our harbour city to its harbour.  There are also plans to create a Town Hall Square, a, east-west pedestrian boulevard that would reunite Hyde Park with the heart of the city. 

And Sydneysiders are not just coming to have fun, increasing numbers of us are choosing to live here. As is the case of many of the world’s greatest cities, the focus of our city center is shifting towards a more recreational and cultural direction, making it a highly attractive option for those seeking to live a more cosmopolitan, cultured life. And with some of the country’s most luxurious and desirable apartments located here, the pull of our harbour city is attracting new residents in rapidly increasing numbers.

Discover Marrickville : Part 2

The Tour-worthy Craft Beer Scene of one of the World’s Coolest Neighbourhoods

Not only one of the world’s top 10 coolest neighbourhoods as voted by TimeOut, Marrickville is also home to one of the Southern Hemisphere’s best craft beer scenes. So whether you’re a major fan of the golden ale or just enjoy the odd pint, you will be positively spoiled for choice in Marrickville. Home to a number NSW’s best craft breweries, Marrickville attracts locals and visitors alike, and if you are really keen, you can even make a day of it on The Legendary Marrickville Brewery Tour. So here’s the lowdown:

Willie the Boatman – Intriguingly named after the legend of a convict boatman, this is open Thursday to Sunday for a behind-the-scenes look at how beer is made. The proud owners of this Sydney institution name all of their beer after mates – Try Crazy Ivan IPA, Black Bunny, Albo American and Rachel for starters.

Batch Brewing Company – As their name suggests, this brewery makes their beers in the old-fashioned way, batch by batch. Most famous for their big, bold flavours, here they believe variety is the spice of life, changing their offer every two weeks. Go for gold with the 6 sample beer paddle or for the less daring try the India Pale Ale or current equivalent.

Wildflower Brewing and Blending – Made using wild NSW yeasts and bacteria with barrel ageing techniques, Wildflower creates one-of-a-kind Belgian-style sour ales, famous for their tart characteristics

Stockade Brew Co – Don’t despair if you are not a beer lover, as Stockade also serve cocktails. Serving their core five beers, they also serve up out-there seasonal releases. At this point, you are going to need some food to soak up all the alcohol, and to do just that, nothing beats a burger! Local food truck Baby Rey’s Burgers offers delectable burgers to choose from.

Sauce Brewing Co – Featuring the best beer garden in Sydney, and offering the best craft beers on the planet from twelve taps, you can’t go past Sauce. Add to this food trucks from Friday to Sunday and Thursday Night Pizzas, you’ll keep coming back for more at this comfy, laid-back watering hole.

The Grifter – One of the Inner West’s busiest breweries, The Grifter has achieved a cult-like status for its seasonable and limited release beers. It does nostalgically retain the first commercial beer the three owners ever made, the Edward Pale Ale. The pool room and rotating pop-up food stalls are great attractions, as is the fact that The Grifter is kid and pet friendly.

Whether you are a beer lover or teetotaller, at Wicks Place on the Park, you are ideally placed to enjoy the best Marrickville has to offer. With a great selection of architecturally designed, fantastically finished apartments to choose from, you’re sure to find the home that’s right for you in one of the world’s Top Ten Coolest Locations!
