One look at glamorous, glitzy and grand Sydney – and you'll fall in love. One read of Sydney Precinctsby Chris Carroll and you'll know just which shops, cafes, restaurants and bars to visit to turn this into a more lasting love affair.

Luckily Chris Carroll is here to help you look past the beaches and discover the best of Sydney: from the cafe hidden at the end of a wharf in Kirribilli to the gaudy and lauded restaurants of Sydney's CBD, from the cute stationery shops of the Northern Beaches to the famous bakeries of the Inner West. You'll never want to leave. Comparison titles: Melbourne Precincts, Tokyo Precincts, Hong Kong Precincts.
