Palm Beach 

Head north to Palm Beach and explore the real Summer Bay. Palm Beach has been used by the producers of Home & Away as the external set for the fictional town since it began back in 1987. Palm Beach is 40km from the CBD and can still offer you the feel of a small seaside resort town. It's the perfect escape from the big city so why not make it a day trip with a hire car. You can find and compare discounted prices by booking with us.

So you've sat and had dinner, now what? Why not jump in your rental car and head to North Head in Manly. This area was once a Military and Quarantine Station and the feeling of history is everywhere. Take part in one of the ghost tours they run at night and enjoy the spooky adventure.

As the sun sets over the city, head out to the Northern Beaches and grab a dinner wrapped in paper and watch the sunset. Manly has an abundance of shore line to enjoy and many takeaway shops along the Corso.

location.png Longrain

If you are looking for a place to have a drink and enjoy good food with friends, then check out Longrain in Commonwealth St, Surrey Hills. This bar is the home of the stick drink in Australia. That's the cocktail that requires the bartender to “muddle” or bash fresh fruit and herbs with alcohol and ice. The food at Longrain is Asian fusion and is as decatent and full of flavors much like the cocktails. 

location.png The Hunter 

One of Australia's famous wine districts lies just North of Sydney. The Hunter Valley is just two hours drive in your rental car from the CBD and feels like its a world away. Take a tour of a winery in a horse-drawn carriage or take an exhilarating balloon ride as dawn breaks, and enjoy the serenity. The Hunter Valley will sooth your weary soul and renew your spirit.
