Les Clefs d’or

Where Sydney - - Contents - BY MARK AN­DER­SON, STATE DI­REC­TOR FOR NSW

IT HAS BEEN A BUSY month for Syd­ney concierge, with our mem­bers en­joy­ing the start of our leisure travel sea­son to Syd­ney. With full ho­tels, bustling restau­rants and spec­tac­u­lar weather, sum­mer is a fan­tas­tic time to be in Syd­ney. Some iconic Syd­ney ex­pe­ri­ences in­clude spend­ing time at the world-fa­mous Bondi Beach, af­ter walk­ing along the pic­turesque coastal walk from ei­ther Bronte or Coogee. Another great op­tion would be to take the ferry across from Cir­cu­lar Quay to Manly Beach and the short stroll to Shelly Beach.

The fes­tive sea­son is a very merry time in Syd­ney, with many key events lead­ing up to Syd­ney’s world­fa­mous New Year’s Eve cel­e­bra­tion. Through­out De­cem­ber there are a va­ri­ety of large and small events in­clud­ing the Martin Place In­ter­ac­tive Christ­mas Tree and live car­ols each night lead­ing up to Christ­mas.

For those look­ing to ex­pe­ri­ence cul­tural events, De­cem­ber is a won­der­ful time of the year with the an­nual Syd­ney In­ter­na­tional Art Se­ries. This year’s two ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tions are “Rem­brandt and the Dutch Golden Age: Mas­ter­pieces from the Ri­jksmu­seum” at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, whilst the Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art Aus­tralia is show­ing “Sip My Ocean” an all new ex­hi­bi­tion by Swiss video and mul­ti­me­dia artist Pip­i­lotti Rist.

These are just a few ex­am­ples of the many amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ences through­out Syd­ney this sum­mer. For di­rec­tions, or a tai­lored rec­om­men­da­tion just for you, don’t for­get to see your concierge in the ho­tel lobby prior to head­ing out for the day. Look for the gold keys on their lapel to de­note that they are a mem­ber of Les Clefs d’or and say hello! LES CLEFS D’OR
