Our next #savorthejourney series follows the beautiful babes of Sancia the Label through their favorite Sydney haunts and hideaways. Designers Heidi Semetka and Angus Plate are the duo behind Sancia – a label of small-batch, artisanal leather handbags and accessories inspired by world travels, a love for adventure, and the carefree beauty of Australia.
So who better to show us around the streets of Sydney than this authentic bohéme duo? Join our journey as we bounce from beach-to-beach, sip champagne during the sunset, shop in Bondi’s hidden gems and dine in at the best hole-in-the-wall digs.
Bronte Ocean BathsThe best way to wake up is an early morning coastal walk and quick swim at Bronte Ocean Baths - cliffside-set salt water pools with beautiful views!
Three Blue Ducks
Down the hill from Bronte Beach sits one of the ocean suburbs' best cafes - "Three Blue Ducks". Boasting dishes sourced from the best local produce, Three Blue Ducks is a must-try. Many of the ingredients come straight from the kitchen garden on-site!
Scrambled eggs with black sausage, dill cucumber yoghurt salad and red currant jam
Then it's back to the 'office' for a spot of work in the beautiful, leafy suburb of Paddington - a town nestled halfway between the city and the ocean.
No day is complete without a swim at our favourite place on earth - the magical, secluded oasis of Gordons Bay. Hidden between the more well-known Coogee and Clovelly Beaches, Gordons is our own little Amalfi Coast.
Head to Bondi in the afternoon where golden sands and deep blue seas await.
Bondi IcebergsDon't forget to enjoy a cheeky afternoon champagne at Bondi's famed Icebergs - another one of Sydney's esteemed cliffside saltwater pools.
Orchard StreetNext, take a quick stop in at Orchard Street, a hidden gem nestled a few streets back from the beach in North Bondi.
Chinese Noodle HouseWe can’t go a week without dumplings at our favourite restaurant in Chinatown. Aptly named ‘Chinese Noodle House’ Sydney siders routinely pack in elbow to elbow to get a hit of their one-of-a-kind twice cooked eggplant and ever-satisfying dumpling platters. Our kind of heaven!
