It’s January 26th, and you know what that means! The greatest holiday in the greatest country in the whole world!
Right then! If we’re gonna have ourselves an absolute ripper of an Australia Day, we’ll need to stock up on the basics. Specifically, the baked basics. Pies and sausage rolls are both vital components in the betterment of humanity, and Bourke Street Bakery is one of the finest place in town to grab ‘em (and they’re a lot nicer than the ones we used to get at the tuck shop).

“You will be overwhelmed with choice from the wide selection of cakes, tarts, flavoursome sourdough breads and loaves, pastries and much, much more. Everything is cooked from scratch with fresh ingredients daily and well worth the extra $$.” – Tiaraaaaa
When it comes to a hot Summer’s day, there’s nothing we love more than unwrapping that butcher’s paper to reveal the scrumptious salty wonder that is fish and chips. North Bondi Fish turns it up a notch, serving wonders like crab sliders, bug meat linguine and fresh oysters. Find out more

There’s a certain man in Sydney who’s been known for serving up an amazing combination of pies, mushy peas and mash from his humble pie stand for the past 70 years. That man’s name is Harry. We all remember growing up with a hearty Four and Twenty, but sometimes, you want something a little bit fancier and that’s where Harry’s famous Tiger pies hit the spot. Find out more
“Harry’s is a Sydney institution… especially after a few bevvies. The Tiger pie is a ‘must-try’! The other thing I love doing is grabbing a couple of pies from Harry’s and finding a nice spot by the harbour and watching Sydney turn from day-mode into night-mode. The only thing which is hard is for the vertically challenged among us to reach the counter…” – Belinda.H

“Hidden gem with a beautiful rooftop with a stunning view of the opera house. Good is beautifully presented too and definitely classier than your normal pub food. Bring your sunnies and enjoy the Sydney weather!” – atan7
