Between the zoo, the shopping, great food, and gorgeous harbour coves, it’s too easy to lose yourself in Mosman on Sydney’s North Shore. Book a cleaner, get out and explore, and come back to a spotlessly clean house.
You’ll need to start your Mosman wander by fueling up with a top-notch cafe breakfast. Head to Avenue Road Cafe for great coffee and filling brunch fare such as corn fritters, waffles, and sandwiches. If your idea of the perfect day is a long, indulgent lunch with views to die for, you’ll want to make a booking at Ormeggio at the Spit. This is high quality regional Italian focusing on traditional Brescian food. You’ll find home-made pasta, slow-cooked meats, and heavenly desserts. The Bathers Pavilion Restaurant also fits into the last category, with modern French inspired cuisine to linger over in an elegant setting overlooking Balmoral Beach.
If you find yourself in the mood for a glass of vino head the The Hunter Wine Bar for great wines in an intimate safari-infused setting. Cold drinks in a casual, yet idyllic setting are calling you to Mosman Rowers Club – you don’t need to be a member to enjoy the facilities at this prime waterfront location.
Mosman’s Military Road has long been a magnet for stylish shoppers. Design Mosman stock independent fashion and accessories labels from Australia and beyond, focusing on designers you won’t find in the big department stores. A bit further down Military Road you’ll find Lighthouse Boutique, which is packed with high-end knitwear, ready-to-wear and accessories. At Burke Boutique you can pick up glam dresses for a night out, casual weekend wear, and boho homewares.
It’s all about the harbour. Taronga Zoo is one of the world’s most gorgeous zoos, with breathtaking views out over the harbour from most of the terraced grounds. If you prefer your wildlife in the wild put on some comfortable shoes and set out on one of Mosman’s foreshore and bushland walks. Or if it’s beach weather just take it easy on tranquil Balmoral Beach – read a book on the sand, swim, grab a coffee at one of the nearby cafes. Then head back to your beautiful, clean home!
