Newtown and specifically My Refinery pre loved designer wear. Owner was fantastic (shop only opened the day before our visit) and her stock was fabulous. Bought my daughters a leather biker jacket and a colab h&m Alexandra wang dress, both as new and with tags - fantastic quality! Go, you will find some real quality at bargain prices

Was it cheap, fast, or easy to use? What made it so simple to get around in Sydney?

Weekly train ticket is probably the cheaper option if you want to venture further afield than the CBD. However it is rather expensive and cost $84 for the weekly ticket, but this still was the cheaper option for us as we were visiting lots of places and we were only there for 4 days, so gave our ticket away to some others at the airport. The cost of staying in a hotel in the CBD was expensive as well. Wouldn't stay and dine in the CBD again because of the cost. We had dinner at one of the Circular Quay restaurants 'the Sydney Oyster Cove' and being a coeliac was excited to see gluten free on the menu, however my meal wasn't gluten free when it arrived just ruined the dining experience, especially considering the cost of the food and drinks.

The beach means different things to different people. What did the beach in Sydney mean to you?

To me, the beach means lifestyle. If I could live any lifestyle it would definitely be a beach-y kind of lifestyle. For me that means relaxation and luxury, comfort and feeling right at home and having the view of Bondi Beach. The beaches aren't just great for swimming in!

Sydney Harbour is one of the most beautiful harbours in the world. Breathtaking with a brilliant blue sky and moody on the few occasions there are clouds. The walks around the harbour are clean and give amazing views.

It's the only way to really see, hear and feel the city. The coastal walking tracks have spectacular views of the dramatic cliffs. Walking along the edge of the Harbour is spectacular. We love walking through different suburbs discovering hidden eateries and soaking up the atmosphere.

What makes Sydney one of those classic city-trip experiences?

As a cosmopolitan city Sydney offers a huge variety of dining experiences and great shopping. From a central hotel you can walk to most places but the public transport system is superb - by rail, bus and water. Excellent theatre is always available; art galleries and museums offer outstanding exhibitions; all this with amazing beaches and beautiful wilderness on the doorstep.

The beaches are dramatic as most of them have headlands either side. Bondi Beach is a hive of activity and there are small beaches tucked away all along the coast.

The Rocks are a wonderful example of how gentrification should work: preserve the old, create a link between the present and the past, communicate history and offer modern facilities and services.
