Take a cocktail voyage around Sydney as part of World Class Cocktail Week. Some of Sydney’s best bars will be creating a special $10 cocktail for you to try during the week. Bring up the map on your phone and bar hop your way around town trying them at your leisure. It’s a little bit of luxe for less and a chance to try drinks you might not normally order.
