If you're visiting Sydney or have visitors to entertain, The Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay is an excellent opportunity to have a meal while soaking up some of the city's less-famous yet delightfully characteristic sites. Located on Ferry Road in Glebe, you can enjoy the quaint suburb of Glebe by strolling through the book and art shops located on its main street. The restaurant itself has a quieter location in a converted boathouse. While feasting on seafood and other delicacies you can admire the historic wooden floors, nautical décor, and a kitchen shaped like the galley of a ship.
You can also enjoy lovely views from the waterfront location of Blackwattle Bay, while still being close to the city. Address: Ferry Road, Glebe, NSW, 2037.
