It is official: New South Wales’ Sydney Fish Market will be moving.
The Australian seafood market will continue operations in its original venue until its new home next door is completed in 2020. It has been in its current location at Blackwattle Bay for half a century and is Southern Hemisphere’s biggest fish market; every year, a whopping 13,500 tonnes of seafood is traded here.
The iconic Sydney Fish Market was never intended to become a popular tourist attraction. However, a study undertaken by Deloitte Access Economics has revealed interesting insights – a fifth of its annual three millions visitors are tourists! The new market will be two times bigger and it is hoped that the new facilities will double the annual number of visitors to six million.

All I care about on a lazy Sunday morning is brunch. Really. Just by thinking about the warm cup of coffee and awesome scramble with toasts is enough to make me hungry.

The following is a list of 5 brunch places in Sydney that you must check out, and trust me on this, they are not your usual eggs and toast.
One of the highlights of my recent Sydney trip was climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge. During the climb, I had the chance to see the city in a different light while thinking about life.

I heard everyone has a separate stomach for desserts. At least, it’s true for all those with a sweet tooth like me. Some people say that Sydney is known for the awesome cafés and beaches. However, do you know there is quite a handful of amazing dessert places too?
Here is a list of my top 10 favourite dessert places in Sydney. While discovering Sydney, why not make it a sweet one too?
I’ve had the chance to go on different media junkets over the last few years, and while all of them are very special, my recent trip to Sydney with Scoot Airlines was particularly memorable. We were part of Scoot’s inaugural flight, we ate our way around the city, we went skydiving, as well as the Sydney Harbour Bridge climb. It was in short, an awesome trip.

Let me begin with a confession about me being a scaredy-cat. I hated outdoor adventures, I hated horror movies, I hated roller coasters, I hated anything that was (then deemed as) too scary. But that was a few years ago, and I have since changed to someone who is now open-minded and receptive towards embracing new phases and challenges.
So, when Scoot and Destination NSW arranged for us to attempt skydiving (OMG!!!) during our ‘Scoot off to Sydney trip‘, I knew it was something that I had to try at least once in my life despite my innate fear.
I literally took a leap of faith, and jumped out of the plane. To say that skydiving is amazing, would be an understatement. Trust me, it is one of the best things you can do in your life – I am so glad that I’ve tried it.
