It’s always a risk staying at an insta-famous accommodation. Will it be overrun by wannabe influencers staging photoshoots all over the property?

This isn’t news to Sydneysiders, but did y’all know how good the hiking in Sydney is?

It’s true. There are dozens of walking and hiking trails in Sydney and surrounds. And they’re so damn accessible that hiking Sydney just becomes a part of your routine, whether it’s an after-work walk along the harbour or beach, or a Saturday spent completing a longer Sydney hike.

Filed under things that gave me culture shock after moving from New York to Sydney: the fact that Boxing Day is an actual holiday in Australia.
