6 Things On Jane Chuck's Must-Do List When In Sydney
There's so much more to Sydney besides it being one of the greatest harbours in the world.
25 year-old social media influencer, Jane Chuck, is known as a fashion and lifestyle icon among Malaysian youths
Jane (real name Jane Lau) started blogging when she was still in secondary school. She is now one of Malaysia's top 10 bloggers, and even owns a café - the Buncit Bao bar.
She is also one of Malaysia's up-and-coming deejays, having picked it up a few years ago.
So what happens when she plans a road trip with her friends to everyone’s favourite city in Australia?
Her followers can definitely expect Jane's Sydney itinerary to be an Instagram-worthy one as she hunts for some off-the-beaten-track activities, beyond the usual Opera House and Harbour Bridge shots.
1. Enjoy a slice of Black Star Pastry's famous Strawberry Watermelon Cake
Black Star Pastry is known for their Strawberry Watermelon cake, made from fresh strawberries, watermelon, almond dacquoise, rose-scented cream, pistachio, and rose petals. It's also probably the most Instagrammed, and the most Instagram-worthy, cake in the world.
Pro tip: It's best to head over to the café before 2pm as the cake is usually sold out by then. If you're getting it as a takeaway, remember to eat it within the hour before it gets soggy!
2. Take the most beautiful walk of your life on the Bondi to Bronte coastal walk
This coastal walk will bring you through three beaches: Bondi, Tamarama, and Bronte. You can find benches and exercise equipment along the way, making the 1.5km-walk super relaxing.
To get to the coastal walk, take buses 333, 380, and 381 from the city centre (Alfred Street), get off at Campbell Parade, and the coastal walk should be just a two-minute walk away.
Pro-tip: Take to the coastal walk between May and November and you'll be able to spot whales!
3. Go for a Sand Dunes Adventure at Port Stephens
Tour the large sand dunes on a Hummer or a quad bike. The tour includes sandboarding, visits to fresh lagoons and high dunes, and even a hands-on experience in digging for fresh water and making tools!
Pro-tip: Do wear long pants, sleeved-top, and apply sunscreen as it can get really hot there!
4. Hop on a dolphin watching cruise
YES! There are dolphins in the area! In fact, there are so many of them that Port Stephens is also called the Dolphin Capital of Australia. Sign up for a cruise and hop on for a leisurely sail on the ocean. Some cruises even offer buffet lunches on deck.
Pro-tip: Bring swimwear! You don't want to miss the chance to chill on the boom net, especially when there are dolphins!
5. Hike to the summit of Tomaree Head
Trust us, the 2.2km hike is totally worth it when you finally get to see the view from the top. Rumour has it that it's possible to spot dolphins from the summit!
Pro-tip: The hike takes about one and a half to two hours, depending on your fitness level. So remember to bring comfortable walking shoes and a pair of binoculars to look out for dolphins!
6. Visit the amazing Blue Mountains
The Blue Mountains area is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to over 400 different types of animals.
You can choose to explore the area onboard the Scenic Railway, the steepest passenger railway ride in the world; the Scenic Cableway, which will give you an amazing view of the Blue Mountains area; or take the Scenic Skyway, suspended 270m over the ravines, if you're brave enough.
Pro-tip: To get Jane's shot at the Lincoln's Rock lookout point, get a ride to the Lincoln's Rock parking area. The lookout point is just a 30-second walk away. Remember to be careful when you're taking photos!
