Spoil Mum in Sydney

story by: Georgia Pell-Johnson

Mother’s Day. The one day a year we all get to remind our Mum’s just how amazing they really are to have raised us. This year, why not spoil Mum in Sydney? Whether she’s a foodie; fashionista or fearless lady, there’s something for every Mum in this picturesque city.

Fearless Mum

Does your mum watch chick flicks without sheading a tear? Well, The Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb is the adventure for her. One of the world’s most famous bridges The Sydney Harbour Bridge is an absolutely stunning piece of architecture. In daylight, nightfall or even at sunset, ascend the arches to the summit 134 metres above the harbour for unspoilt views over the iconic city skyline. Your Climb Leader will entertain you and you’re Mum with stories about the bridge’s history dating back to the 1920’s.

Fashionista Mum
Spoil your mum ‚Äčto the ultimate shopping day with a high tea & stylist experience at Westfield Mall, Pitt St in Sydney’s CBD. Resident stylist Kash O’Hara has years of experience in the fashion industry and offers an extremely friendly, fun and personal encounter. Get to know Kash over a lavish high tea at the Tea Salon, enjoying scrumptious bites and champagne. Then head off on your luxury shopping experience where you may even be lucky enough to take advantage of Kash’s fabulous discounts available at selected stores.

Foodie Mum
Sydney’s foodie spots are spread all over the city and its suburbs, with something guaranteed to tickle yours & Mummsie’s fancy around every corner! If coffee and brunch is how your mum likes to spend her mornings, then head to Surry Hills for superb cafe culture. If it’s Asian food you’re after then Chinatown is an obvious must but just south of the CBD is Spice Alley, a hidden gem for flavours situated right off Kensington St. Also in Chippendale, Sydney’s emerging downtown, is a hive of activity thriving with cafes, bars and restaurants. Alternatively, if your Mum is the type that can’t quite let go of her healthy regime, then head out to Bondi for the ultimate selection of raw eateries and menus boasting flavours from every corner of the globe.

Fan Mum
If you’ve heard your mum gossiping about Alf Stuart and the scandals of Summer Bay then we know the perfect way to entertain her! Flamin’ Galah’s Official Home and Away tour offer a 4 hour Sydney round trip to Palm Beach, the location of the TV series, where you can re-live some of your favourite scenes and learn all about the area, production, filming and people behind the scenes. If you’re lucky, you may even see filming in action and be able to snap a fan photo with one of the stars themselves.
Note: Tours only run on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesdays and depart from central Sydney.

Fancy Mum
Indulge yourselves with the ultimate 5 star experience at none other than Darling Harbour’s appropriately named complex, The Star. Shop like a princess right up until dinner and then feast like a king at one of the many delicious dinner spots sure to satisfy your senses. End your day with mum feeling like a true royal and head a show at the theatre. There is no need to worry about having too many shopping bags to carry or a belly full to the brim, as the Lyric Theatre is conveniently located right on The Star’s doorstep.

Festival Mum
Vivid Sydney is fast approaching, and this festival of lights and music is one not to be missed. With 80 light art installations, new precincts and more venues than ever before there is heaps to explore. This year, the festival will take place over 23 nights and can be experienced all over the city from the sails of the Sydney Opera House to Central park and across the harbour to Taronga Zoo. This is the perfect little getaway, guaranteed to blow your Mum’s mind!
