Prince Alfred Park Public Pool
Aquatic centre105 Chalmers St, Surry Hills NSW 2010
"On a perfect day in Sydney, I'd probably try to fit too many things in, but it'd be getting up in the morning and doing some exercise, like yoga or Pilates, and going for a swim. I used to go swimming at Prince Alfred Pool, one of my favorite pools in Sydney, or Icebergs for swimming and a sauna."
French restaurant22 Challis Ave, Elizabeth Bay NSW 2011
"My favorite places to eat in Sydney at the moment are Bistrot 916 and Pellegrino 2000. Bistrot 916 is in Potts Point, and it's like this French restaurant — incredibly delicious. They have a secret burger menu. I'm pretty sure. Pellegrino is an Italian restaurant that the same people run and the service is exceptional. The food is incredibly delicious."
Hotel47-53 Wentworth Ave, Sydney NSW 2000
"The Ace Hotel. The last time I stayed there me and my friend went to an art opening around the corner at this new gallery in Surry Hills. And our night continued from there. The city is becoming a lot more vibrant. There's a lot more stuff happening now, and it's another exciting place to be around."
