We went to Sydney this weekend and I scoped out a great place to take ALL MY FRIENDS WHO ARE COMING TO VISIT ME ONE DAY IN AUSTRALIA (hint hint). Balmain has great food, fantastic shopping, and a beautiful views of the harbour bridge, which is a short ferry ride away. Check out some of the foodie shops in nearby Rozelle (we were so busy that we couldn't stop but I could tell they were fantastic):
The Barn Cafe and Grocery (Rozelle)
About Life natural grocery (Rozelle)
And an article that summarises all the great things about Balmain.
And after looking at all the expensive dresses in the shops, I went to the nearby outlet mall Birkenhead Point and bought the same clothes at up to 90% off!
The pictures show a takeaway meal (chicken kebabs and sushi) and enjoyed the view.
