    Where does your sister live?

    Newtown is always fantastic for food, shopping, night out.

    We used to go to Pink Salt restaurant in Double Bay but haven't been for ages, shopping is good but you will need $$$$
    Watson Bay pub is great for lunch/drinks on a weekend

    @Elijahsmum fab suggestions! If you're looking for something in double bay, Mrs Sippy is pretty good, but if you want something beautiful and swanky, go to the intercontinental (rooftop).
    Henry Deane has amazing views.
