Food scene
This is a hidden gem amongst the hidden gem. The place looks unassuming, located just below the apartment complex. But once you enter into the restaurant, you are hit with a delightful smell. Upon ordering, you are hit with an even more amazing taste of Japanese fine-dining experience that is found nowhere else in Sydney.

Legendary Thai food that has been a local favourites for years. There's nothing to dislike about this place. It's almost guaranteed to have long queue if you come during night time / evening. Definitely order the Pad Thai, the fried rice, the papaya salad, Pad Prik Khing (pork belly).

Aldi (stylised as ALDI) is the common brand of two German family-owned discount supermarket chains. Although a smaller chain, Aldi has become a popular grocery store for many because of its cheaper prices. Part of the reason why prices are so low is because the supermarket avoids using brand names as much as possible.

At Cahill Park Playground the fun stuff blends into nature, with surfaces made of sand, woodchips and sandstone rocks. Structures are challenging, for instance the slide doesn't have stairs or a ladder, but a big climbing frame (much to Mr 3's dismay). Things have to be worked out, so while older kids can climb the structure, younger kids must do their best to climb up the slide itself (which can cause major traffic jams as you'd imagine). But this is the beauty of the park, it forces kids to use their imaginations and have some free-play in an unstructured environment. It caters to kids of all ages - I even saw some teenagers excercising on the balance beams - and there are lots of shaded areas for grown-ups to sit. Kids can play on the netted climbing dome, swings, monkey bars, a spinning dish and one of those nouveau see-saws that spin around and look like mobile cranes. Toddlers will love the sandy area dedicated just to them with rocket ship slide and tipping buckets for scooping sand. Overlooking the Cooks River, it's a beautiful spot to have a picnic with lots of tree shade by the water and ample picnic tables.

The stairs at Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair in the Royal Botanic Gardens are long—there are more than 115 to scale—and there’s a lot of flat parkland at the bottom so you can alternate between bodyweight exercises and cardio up the stairs. Plus, it’s one of the most stunning open-air gyms anywhere—you’re exercising while overlooking the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. At lunchtime on weekdays—roughly from noon to 2 pm—this becomes the busiest set of stairs I have ever seen. Everyone runs here from the city to train. I recommend visiting in the morning or after work instead. It’s also relatively quiet on weekends.

Art & Culture
The permanent collection is excellent, but they also have top visiting exhibitions. I often visit on weekends and take my kids—they have a fantastic family program. Alongside every exhibition here is a learning space for younger visitors where they can be tactile and engage without touching the art. They have a spectacular rooftop cafe with some of the best views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge in the city. You can sit inside or outside and enjoy coffee and cake or a glass of wine and lunch. It’s nice to go on Wednesdays when it’s open late—along with the rest of the gallery.
