Hello!

The Sydney Connection curates private dining walks around our favourite inner city precincts of Surry Hills Darlinghurst and Potts Point on a daily basis.

Accompanied by a well-connected guide, our walks are aimed at visitors and Sydneysiders who want to go ‘where the locals go’ for inspiring food, good service and cool interiors. We take bookings for between 1 - 10 Guests per booking and visit 4 venues on each walk. Enjoying a different course at each venue accompanied by matching wine.

We also regularly stage food events as part of the best-known events that celebrate the inspirational food culture our city has to offer:  Good Food Month, Pyrmont Wine, Food & Art Festival and Sydney Mardi Gras. Some of Sydney’s most-loved bars, and restaurants have hosted our events over the past three years: A Tavola | Baccomatto OsteriaBar H | Bills | Kim | Love Tilly DevineMahjong Room and many more.

YOUR GUIDE


Maree Sheehan

MAREE SHEEHAN

is a well-connected Potts Point local with a strong network of bars, restaurants and cafes that she visits on a regular basis. Through her keen interest in walking, talking and eating Maree has gradually built-up her knowledge and expertise on the food scene of her city.

A naturally stylish woman Maree loves to dress-up for a night out with her progressive dining guests. She gets a buzz from surprising guests with hidden eating house locations and seeing the joy on their faces when good food arrives at the table or a special cocktail is created in front of them.  Maree is always on the search for the next perfect flat white coffee. She dines out at her local cafes & restaurants daily and is a voracious reader of the food press.

Originally from Auckland, New Zealand, Maree Sheehan has lived in Sydney for the past seventeen years and first visited Sydney as a twenty-one year old tourist. By 1998 Maree was a permanent resident of Sydney and fast falling in love with a Sydneysider and the city itself. The energy, the outdoor lifestyle and the abundance of fabulous food, good service and cool décor trends ensured that she stayed longer than the romance lasted.

Fast forward to July 2012. Maree is showing a dear friend visiting from overseas around her adopted home town. She really enjoys the process and wonders if there is a niche for doing all your favourite things whilst showing like-minded people around the city. After some investigation and a few encouraging conversations with friends Maree launched The Sydney Connection in January 2013.
