My Route du Bonheur

Australia: from Sydney to the Barossa wine country

Plan your personalized
itinerary with our concierge

+ 1 800 735 2478 * *Local charges apply
Sydney, a city devoted to the ocean. From hip Bondi Beach south of the city to the cliffs of Whale Beach to the north, Sydney offers a genuine oceanside way of living with all kinds of fun activities every day: sailing on the harbour, surfing, walking, kite-surfing etc. Sydney, the grand harbour city, is the starting point on a route that crosses 1,200km (about 2 hours by air) to the festival and artists city of Adelaide on the south coast of Australia. To the northeast of Adelaide, we discover the amazing Eden and Barossa valleys which are wholly devoted to wine growing. These outstanding Syrah vineyards (the local name for this variety is Shiraz) give wines that are rich with good strength. Some are so good they are worth the trip alone...

Tetsuya’s Restaurant

Sydney - Australia

Restaurant in town. Consistently cited as one of the greatest chefs of his time, Tetsuya has created a world renowned restaurant. In contrast to its bustling central location in Sydney, Chef Tetsuya Wakuda’s serene Japanese inspired building with exquisite gardens works in harmony with the perfectly balanced dishes. The degustation menu may feature a delicate Sashimi of Kingfish with Black Bean and Orange to an exquisite Chocolate Mousse Cake shimmering under a Chocolate Miroir. Tetsuya is inspired by flavours of Japan with classical French techniques and a bounty of extraordinary Australian produce and his signature dish is a Confit of Ocean Trout with Celery, Witlof and Unpasteurised Ocean Trout Roe. ...

Eleven Bridge

Sydney - Australia

Restaurant in town. Between the port and the business district of Sydney, Eleven Bridge, occupies the first floor of a magnificent sandstone building. With an emphasis on this country’s finest and most sustainable produce, chef Phil Wood’s seasonally inspired a la carte menu offers a diverse selection of modern Australian dishes, interspersed with celebrated classics from Rockpool’s rich culinary history. In the kitchen, the skill of the chefs is paramount as they highlight the nature of individual ingredients and traditional cooking methods: a roasted lobster; a whole partridge steamed in bread; native abalone pan fried and doused in brown butter and herbs at the table. ...

Under the sails of the Sydney Opera House

Under the sails of the Sydney Opera House

Like the Louvre Pyramid in Paris or the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the Sydney Opera House is an icon of 20th century architecture. Designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon with tiled sails that majestically overlook the harbour, Sydney Opera House is a leading attraction that is remarkable from any angle: whether from across the bay or from a bar on the water's edge or indeed from inside the Concert Hall at an unforgettable concert ...


Bondi Beach – no mere beach

Bondi Beach – no mere beach

Bondi Beach is so much more than just a surf beach: Enjoying close proximity to the city centre, Australia’s most famous beach is the home of Australian surf-lifesaving and numerous events and festivals take place here throughout the year. As well as the beach and the surf, the main streets have a wealth of ever more cool and designer shops and restaurants – something for everyone. This is the Australian lifestyle ...


Coastline fit for a postcard

Coastline fit for a postcard

Ask any surfer round here where surfing was invented and they will tell you: it was here along this 20km stretch of sand! Manly, Palm Beach - each has its fans and legends. Collaroy, Freshwater, Mona Vale, Newport, Avalon and Whale Beach to name a few. Fun, glamorous, relaxing and sporty. They all witness the perpetual rolling of the regular and powerful waves ... 


Watersports

Watersports

The far Northern Beaches is an iconic part of Sydney, located just over an hour’s drive from the center of Sydney, Palm Beach is home to the city’s most northerly stretch of sand. Sweeping south from Barrenjoey Head, the beach’s golden sands and sparkling blue waters are ideal for relaxing, strolling, swimming and surfing. Both Whale and Palm Beach boast great surfing conditions, while the southern end of the beaches both offer a protected environment for swimming, including salt water ocean swimming pools. Enjoy boating, sailing, kayaking on beautiful Pittwater.   


Out of the water

Out of the water

Play a round of golf on the picturesque Palm Beach Golf course or enjoy a scenic trail walk to the iconic Barrenjoey Lighthouse and enjoy breathtaking views across neighbouring suburbs and out to sea. Whilst in Palm Beach we recommend a visit to local art gallery Libby Watkins followed by shopping at the local fashion and homewares stores.

The Louise

Barossa Valley - Australia

Hotel and restaurant in the country. A great circle of steel sculpted by local artist Greg Johns is a focal point at the entrance to the hotel and restaurant. Behind it, a collection of contemporary limestone buildings merges into the countryside. The Louise, atop a gentle hill in the middle of Syrah vineyards, has all the charm of a boutique hotel with elegantly designed suites nestled in the heart of the Barossa wine valley. You can admire the sun set over vineyards, enjoy a delightful outdoor shower, meet the wildlife at ‘breakfast with the kangaroos’ and in between these peaceful activities, taste world-class wines which go beautifully with the highly renowned cuisine at Appellation, the hotel’s restaurant. ...

Hentley Farm Restaurant

Seppeltsfield - Australia

Restaurant in a vineyard. A dirt track wends its way through the heart of the vineyard to the old farm outbuildings. The restaurant occupies elegantly restored stables overlooking the wine cellar. The roof and solid stone walls have been preserved and offer an authentic backdrop to Chef Lachlan Colwill’s cuisine. He was brought up in Barossa Valley, but then travelled the world over before returning to his native land to serve modern Australian cuisine, based on local ingredients designed to match the estate wines: freshly-picked salad accompanied by red tuna and chicken livers, squid with a rustic blend of leeks, linseed and sorrel. ...

Museums and Art Galleries in Adelaide

Museums and Art Galleries in Adelaide

Adelaide is synonymous with elegance and the arts. The architectural heritage and the many museums and art galleries in the city stand out somewhat in a country where nature is king. Located adjacent to the South Australia Museum which exhibits wonderful pieces of Aboriginal art, the Art Gallery of South Australia provides a complete overview of Australian artists (painting, sculpture, photography, decorative arts etc.) from the country's birth right up to the present day.
