What is the best local’s secret in your suburb of Sydney?


After you’ve lived in a suburb long enough, you begin to accumulate a few local’s secrets.

Maybe it’s a hidden store, scenic spot, or hard-to-find pub that only locals know about.

Perhaps it’s an awesome shop or cafe that treats the regular locals particularly well.

Is there a certain local way of doing certain things in your area?

Or perhaps you’ve got a celebrity living nearby that everyone knows about, but keeps tight-lipped about.

Every Sydney suburb has its own local’s secrets – but maybe it’s time to share the knowledge around with others…
