The World Loves Sydney (Leo and Christine) was invited to an exclusive famil to experience some of The Rocks finest establishments. The Rocks is unlike anywhere else in Sydney. It has a unique pace and mood, one that allows you to relax and take your time. Like a craft, our first village has been handed down over the years, with each generation finding and nurturing their own interpretation. It’s much more than its beautiful architecture and vibrant culture. It’s a place with heart and soul, shaped by people from the past and embraced by people of today. It’s a place that has been built by hand. It’s eclectic, charming and brimming with stories waiting to be told.
Sydney has come alive with WE WILL ROCK YOU, the worldwide smash hit musical by Queen and Ben Elton; guaranteed to blow your mind.

Here are our best Sydney Cafes from The World Loves Sydney, (do you agree?):
Reuben Hills - Surry Hills
Reuben Hills is a uber cafe in trendy Surry Hills that sings with a cacaphony of first class cuisine exuding a playful touch, a chic ambience and top notch coffee. We visired Reuben Hills as part of a sojourn in Surry Hills staying at the Cambridge Hotel nearby. Lining up for 40 minutes on a week day to get in for brunch may seem overbearing, but we soon discovered it was all well worth it. Impressive was the maitre'D giving us regular reports on how the table availablity was looking... Reuben Hills is an elongated and elegant space with exposed brick on a section of the wall and high ceilings.
