    Exploring Beyond The Blenheim

    Staying at The Blenheim means you are free to explore the best Sydney has to offer at your doorstep. The new light rail is located opposite The Blenheim, and if you track down its path you will pass UNSW, Randwick Racecourse, the beautiful Centennial Park, famous Sydney Cricket Ground, trendy Surry Hills, and all the way down to the iconic The Rocks if you like!


    Check out our favourite places in Coogee, Randwick and The Spot here.  


    Some of our favourite places to explore along the way to Surry Hills and beyond are:

    The Spot, Coogee Beach, the Entertainment Quarter, Paddington, Surry Hills, the City and beyond are all within 15-20 mins of The Blenheim.

    Coogee Beach – 5 minute drive

    Just a 5 minute drive down the hill, you’ll find the famous Coogee beach in this relaxed coastal suburb. Its broad, sandy beach appeals to both swimmers and beach goers, and the ocean pools cut into the headlands are popular with families.
    Take a stroll down Coogee Bay Road and experience the variety of cafes, surf shops, restaurants and homeware stores Coogee is known for.
    There are laid-back pubs and bars on the beachfront, while the surrounding streets are filled with alfresco cafe – some of which you can read about in our post here.
    The extremely popular establishment Coogee Pavilion is the perfect place to sit back and relax on their rooftop for a drink.

    Surry Hills – 15-20 minute tram

    Just a 15-20 minute light rail adventure leads you to leafy Bourke and café-lined Crown street, known for its stylish cultural scene and diverse mix of cafes, bars and restaurants. 

    Terraced houses on Crown and Cleveland streets showcase hip coffee joints, fashion boutiques and global eateries. Trendy pubs, wine bars and galleries dot the area around Surry Hills.

    Cafes & restaurants

    Hop off at the corner of Devonshire Street (you can’t miss the building with the cool art installation) and indulge in a meal at one of the highest rated cafes in Sydney, FOURATEFIVE.

    Other cafe and restaurant hot spots include:

    Bills famous for its ricotta hotcakes, owned by celebrity chef Bill Granger.  Get in early especially on weekends.

    Vacanza In The Hills – authentic wood-fired Italian pizza & Aperol Spritz.  Reservation are recommended for this popular eatery.

    Messina – endless flavours to choose from.  The perfect sweet finish to any meal.  Try resisting a second scoop!


    There are also many famous pubs to visit including the Dove & Olive (the light rail goes past this), or walk down Crown Street and you will find yourself at The Clock Hotel or The Horse.

    Whether it’s a relaxed weekend brunch, a quick dinner on the go or drinks with friends you’ll find something here to suit all tastes.  Check out the markets that take place in the park on the first Saturday in every month.

    For Broadsheet’s take on this see their recommended places in Surry Hills.

    George Street / Sydney Harbour / The Rocks

    Continue down the light rail line past George Street (famous for its shopping), and hop off at The Rocks located in the southern shore of Sydney Harbour.

    The Rocks is tourist precinct and historic area of Sydney’s city centre and is known as the birthplace of modern Sydney.

    There are many historic pubs (dating back to the late 1800s), and of course you can visit the most iconic attractions in Sydney, including the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
