iVisit.... Hinky Dinks

iVisit.... Hinky Dinks

Hinky Dinks is a small bar in the Sydney suburb of Darlinghurst.

With an emphasis on approachable wines and fun drinks, Hinky Dinks embodies the enthusiastic spirit of the 1950s cocktail culture. A culture that knew a cocktail wasn't so much a drink as it was a fashion accessory. And that the Cocktail hour wasn't so much a time, but more a mood - a defiant stance against the demands of the nine-to-five. It's all about the difference between a glass of gin with an olive in it, and a Martini.

iVisit.... Bennelong Restaurant

iVisit.... Bennelong Restaurant

Sometime over 200 years ago, Bennelong Point was a tidal rock island in the heart of the Gadigal lands. It has been said this was a location for Aboriginal women to congregate on the rising tide, eat shellfish by the fire and tell stories.

Bennelong Point is recorded as the largest midden found in Australia. Sometime after British settlement, these midden shells were burned and crushed to manufacture lime required to build Government house.

Government House soon became a centre for communication between Aborigines and colonists, mostly due to a man called Bennelong who befriended Governor Phillip and was the first Aboriginal person to live voluntarily in the settlement. 

Bennelong Restaurant is built on a site enriched with history of communal eating and telling stories. We invite you to create your own story in one of the most recognisable buildings in the world.

This magnificent space offers first class food and wine in one of Australia’s most iconic locations. Perfect for celebrating, whether it’s meal either side of a performance at The Sydney Opera House, entertaining clients or simply enjoying an evening with good friends.
