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.

MAREE SHEEHAN

Maree Sheehan - Director and Chief Guide - started conducting food, fashion and design day-walks in January 2013, after she had an international internet date with a guy called Oscar from Houston, Texas!

Maree is a well-connected Potts Point local with a great 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 fruitful relationships with the restaurateurs of inner-city Sydney. Enabling her to create VIP experiences for her guests and ensure a consistently good & unique experience.

Maree soon realised that the food component was the most popular from what guests mentioned in their reviews on Trip Advisor. So in August 2015 she changed the focus of the business to dining walks only and we have been very busy ever since!

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 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 Osteria | Bar H | Bills | Kim | Love Tilly Devine | Mahjong Room and many more. So come and wine & dine with a local!

Please note: for festival events and larger groups there may be other fabulous Sydney Connection guides engaged to lead your group as Maree has not yet learned to morph!

Originally from Auckland, New Zealand, Maree Sheehan has lived in Sydney for the past eighteen 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.
