Sydney in one day

I visit Sydney, only to leave, wishing I had another week there. Splitting my focus between a lifetime of very cherished family, old friends and a busy business its back-to-back.
If I was to spend one day as a first time visitor in the Emerald city, here is what I would do :

Sunrise Ferry Ride – Watsons Bay to Circular Quay.
Jump on a Ferry and ride around the harbour for the very best view of the water and Sydneys incredible real estate. For a more traditional cruise, take an older north shore ferry.
stop by Watsons Bay Hotel for lunch.

Taronga Zoo
Not just for little people, it is quite possibly the best zoo in the world, with a spectacular view of the Opera House and Bridge. A must see are the Bird and Seal shows.

Sea Plane to Palm Beach.
Every city has its Santa Barbara or Hamptons and one of Sydney’s top escapes is Palm Beach. The sea plane departs from Rose Bay Marina and the flight takes you up the coastline north of Sydney.

Cocktails at Icebergs, Bondi Beach
I love Icebergs at anytime of the day,but honestly, the best time is the afternoon, when you can still enjoy the turquoise water of Bondi beach and see the surfing action.

Sunset Surf

The elements I most miss about living in Australia are the beach, surf and salt air.
Needless to say, I’m a hopeless surfer but love the beach and waves on a Winters day and when the water is 19c and warmer than the sea breeze, its definitely better in, than out. The deserted beaches at sunset feel like a lifetime away from downtown New York.
I grew up on the island of Tasmania and spent the most part of 13 years at Bronte beach, or by Sydney harbour. Water is a constant in my life and inspires our designs every day.

The surf also gave me an opportunity to road test our new archway collection cuff, launching in August online. I love it.
