The Sydney Connection curates dining walks around our favourite inner city precincts of Surry Hills, Darlinghurst, Potts Point and Manly. Accompanied by a well-connected guide, our walks are aimed at visitors and Sydneysiders who want to go ‘where the locals go’ for inspiring food, good service and cool interiors.

We take bookings for between 1 - 10 Guests per booking and visit 3 venues on each walk. Enjoying a different course at each venue accompanied by matching wine at the first two venues.

Our Darlinghurst dining walk starts at Big Poppas, a fab Italian dining room on Oxford Street

What should I wear? Although Sydney is a casual & relaxed city we encourage our guests to dress for dinner as we will be dining in some pretty trendy places.

What shoes should I wear? Leave the Lady Gaga heels at home as we will be walking between venues so comfy shoes are best!

What is the difference between a group and a private booking?

Group bookings include all of the above and other travelers may join the group with a maximum of ten guests per group.You will need to meet us at the first venue.

Private bookings are only for you and your crew. We will throw in the option of an Uber pick-up from your inner city hotel and a local food gift for each person at the end of the evening.
