What To Do & See in Sydney from a Local’s Perspective!

So you’re off to the Big Smoke… AKA Sydney, for your dream surgery! If you’re in need of some local tips on where to go and what to see, look no further… We got you girl!

Pre surgery, take a stroll around the iconic Bondi Beach, the streets of Bondi are lined with edgy fashion boutiques and uber-cute cafes. If you’re of an intermediate fitness level, why not conquer the Bondi to Bronte Coastal Walk? Featuring spectacular ocean views and some seriously Insta-worthy rock formations.

The Bondi to Bronte Coastal Walk is a three kilometre walk, along the coastline of Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte. We recommend finishing the walk with a refreshing swim at the picturesque Bronte Baths (please remember you cannot be sunburnt for your surgery, so be sure to slip, slop, slap).

Our main Plastic Surgery Clinic is located in the beautiful suburb of Surry Hills and both of CosMediTour’s partner Sydney hospitals Double Bay Day Hospital and East Sydney Private Hospital are located nearby, within a five to ten minute drive.

But first… COFFEE! Downstairs from our Clinic, you will find Lumiere Cafe, the staff are lovely and you may even see our Surgeons enjoying their daily dose of caffeine here as well. If you need to get some last-minute snacks, toiletries or magazines, you will find Woolworths Surry Hills (Metro) right next door to our clinic.

Shop until you drop (not literally please ladies) at Westfield Sydney, it’s located less than three kilometres from our clinic, if you’re going to go shopping post surgery, be sure to bring a friend to help you carry your bags. Also, close by is the Sydney Tower Eye, not for the faint-hearted, this is the second tallest structure in the southern hemisphere and has a pretty impressive observation deck.

For casual, yet cool dining in the heart of Surry Hills, Dead Ringer is a dead set must! Modern Australian twist on European kitchen techniques, Mediterranean hospitality and bold flavours you might expect from Asian cuisine. Located within a groovy townhouse, enjoy your dinner amongst a lush garden terrace or at their comfortable counter-top.

Drawing inspiration from Cuba, playful modern vintage hotels of Miami, against the backdrop of Sydney’s breathtaking harbour views and sure to stimulate your senses. Hyde Hacienda Sydney Bar + Lounge Combines fresh local produce with South American influences, their Executive Chef Steven Hartert has crafted a menu featuring a host of small and large dishes, light enough for a nibble or substantial enough for a feast.

Hyde Hacienda Sydney Bar + Lounge are also currently offering Breakfast with a view, feast in classic brunch dishes like Smashed Avo, Eggs Benny, and try Hyde style dishes, like the Hyde Breakfast Bowl and Crispy Brioche French Toast.

Nothing says vacay, like sipping a mocktail under the shade of a dusty-pink, ruffled umbrella on a rooftop, overlooking the magnificent Hyde Park. Located a short 1.5 kilometre walk from our clinic, is Slims Rooftop, perched atop of Hyde Park House. Offering a delicious modern Asian fusion izakaya inspired menu and open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.

Whilst, we’re all about treat yo’ self, let’s talk eyebrows. The team at Kristin Fisher Eyebrows have refined the delicate art of customised eyebrows. They appreciate the significant role that eyebrows play in achieving a perfectly balanced look for each client. Their Brow Artists carefully analyse your face to design a brow that will enhance your features and compliment your complexion and colouring.  Enjoy being pampered within their welcoming, Pinterest worthy luxurious space!
