AA’s Guide To Australian Craft Beers

While the culture of thick bearded barmen handing over pints of delicious craft beers may have originated in America, it hasn’t taken long for the Aussies to catch up. And can anyone really be surprised?

There’s no doubt that beer is loved down under so it was always only a matter of time before Australia started serving up its own versions of microbrew beers. While the population may be small, in just a small window of time the Aussies have already swamped the microbrewery scene offering some of the tastiest craft beers you can get.

Here are a few to check out when you are down under, and if you’d like to enjoy some excellent companionship with your frosty beverage then please checkout our craft selection of Sydney Escorts.

Young Henry’s in Newtown, Sydney

Located just a stone throw’s away from the infamous Enmore theatre, this brewery is located in an old warehouse which has now turned into a beer lab of sorts featuring taps, bottles, tanks and a tasting bar. You can order a tasting tray to sample their whole selection but whatever you do, do not leave without trying their Indian Pale Ale (IPA). It come in at a staggering 7.7 percent in alcohol content and known to the owners as Africola Rock ‘n’ Rola.

The Boatrocker Brewery in Braeside, Melbourne

The Boatrocker brewery is an old-school no nonsense brewery that cares more about a simple but fundamentally strong beverage than its hipster value. Their Hop Bomb IPA is a full bodied drink that will have you pounding your chest like you’ve just had your first post work beer. You can sample their goods at the Braeside beer hall.

Hawkers beer in Melbourne

Hawkers take brewing to a whole new level with their ultra modern, high-tech brewing facility on Henty Street in Melbourne. While they are known for their specialty in ales, their whole selection is so good that they earned nine medals at the Australian International Beer awards in 2016. That’s a helluva endorsement and their product certainly does not disappoint. Thirsty craft beer enthusiasts will make the journey to their Reservoir cellar just to taste the froth of their selection.

Prancing Pony Brewery in Adelaide Hills

This South Australian brewery gained international fame with their IPA when it earned the Supreme Champion Beer award at the International Beer Challenge Awards in London. Their trademark lies in their brewing strategy, a process that’s known as “fire brewing” which was a way of making beer that was popular in Europe awhile ago. The brewery is worth visiting for the beers but they also provide great guides and delicious country-style lunches.

The Australian Hotel and Brewery on Rouse Hill in Sydney

This brewery changes its ales seasonally so there is always a new flavour to try out regardless of the weather. The beers at this brewery have earned it multiple awards on both domestic and international stages and their quality is so good that it has even broken into the highly competitive Japanese beer scene. They are also the first Aussie micro brewery to can beers for both flavour and the environment.

Hawthorn Brewing Company

The Hawthorn Brewing Company has a worldly approach in its beer making. The owners are known for being well travelled merchants who cross oceans to try out the flavours of its international compatriots and bring the best flavours and techniques to their own brewery in Melbourne. Through this constant trial and error and adding and subtracting of flavours they have produced some of the finest craft beers in the country. Their award winning selection includes delicacies such as their Pale ale, Pilsner, IPA and Golden Ale. Do not miss this one.

Agency Atlantic Australia Birthday Party April 2017

I usually arrange a private room in a bar or restaurant for our parties but but this time I wanted something a little more private so I booked a Penthouse Apartment

The Penthouse was great in the photos but as I checked in it was more spectacular than expected – It was huge with stunning city views, so much space which we needed

As I went out to explore the local area, I met an elderly lady a neighbouring apartment. The lady was visiting Sydney with her Church Group and they were all staying on our floor; This gave me a bit of a giggle. If only they knew what was happening in our apartment haha

The evening started as always with me with a bundle of nerves hoping that there would be more than just me, our photographer, Juliet, Zoe, Bianca and Victoria in attendance lol

Bec sent out the details of our secret location to all our lovely members at 5pm and then we wait hoping that we will get a ‘thanks Bec’ in reply so we know someone is coming lol

The photographer set up a mini studio to take pics while I stocked the fridge

Juliet, Zoe, Victoria and Bianca had fun having their picture taken while we waited for our guests.

Thankfully soon after our guests started to arrive too as did Kate, Giselle and English Ashley as well as our gorgeous lingerie waitress

At 7.30pm it was show time!   2 gorgeous ladies we had hired for the event begain the most unforgettable XXX show

The show was exceptional! We were all so very impressed with the show; it was a lot of fun!  One of our members ended up with his shirt off being pounced on by 2 stunning dancers – He wasn’t complaining lol

Many of our guests left after the show but others stayed until late in the evening

It was lovely to receive SMS the next day from gents saying what a fantastic night they had – it’s always nice to hear that your efforts are appreciated

Another Great Party :)  - Now I have to come up with ideas for our Christmas Party – I have no idea how I can top this party but one of the Dancers said she will come up with a better show… I am not sure that is possible

The Comprehensive Guide to Enjoying High Tea Time in Sydney

Sydney may be known for its wonderful selection of world class beaches but what many may be surprised to hear is that it also has a fine range of private tea rooms. Whether you are looking for an elegant outing or a fun family experience with the kids filled with freshly baked goods, you will find it in the halls of Sydney’s tea rooms.

Here are a handful of places to start exploring the high tea culture in Sydney:

Burnt Orange

Burnt orange doubles up as both a shop and café in a classic golf club which was erected sometime in the 1920’s. What’s great is you really get the feeling of what times were like way back then just by walking into the venue. Prepare for an afternoon of fattening by cake and tart. Sugar highlights include a mouth-watering Moroccan orange and almond cake which can only be topped by the salted caramel and chocolate tart. Tea is served on a wooden balcony which overlooks the kookaburras that play on the lawn. Your tea towel comes with a delightful selection of chicken tarragon sandwiches and freshly made scones. Eat like a king and enjoy the stunning view on the balcony. Burnt Orange can be found in Mossman off Middlehead Road.

The Langham

If royal service tickles your fancy then the Langham is the place to be. Every Friday, hordes of elegantly dressed locals pack out this little venue for cakes, scones and tea. Birthed in 1865 as a part of the greater Langham hotel, the afternoon tea here is served with a selection of salmon, ham and cucumber sandwiches. Even vegetarians will be pleased with the cheese and tomato sandwiches. Sweeter delights include scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream as well as little squares of chocolate fudge. The tea selection is bare but well put together. There is also a tea session for the little ones where they can make pretend with a menu packed with delicious treats like cookies and marshmallows. The Langham is located near the Observatory Hill Park off Kent street.

Sir Stamford at Circular Quay

A high tea at Sir Stamford is a rather smooth experience. Celebrations start early here as you can be expected to be served champagne upon arrival. From there, a well put together staff member will proceed to overwhelm your senses with the itinerary. The tea selection is extensive to say the least and the accompanying sweets and sandwiches certainly live up to the hype. An insider’s tip is for you to get a window seat.

Hydro Majestic Hotel


Choice is what makes the high tea at Hydro Majestic hotel interesting. While you can certainly have the classic British experience, the hotel has taken a modern approach to bring high tea to the masses. For instance, they do a gluten-free high tea as well as one that’s aimed for kids. For the more open minded and those with a more savoury palate, there is even an Eastern tea which holds Asian classics like dumplings and rice paper rolls on the menu.

Swissotel Sydney

This is another odd but interesting high tea experience. Unlike the usual special service that is common at high tea rooms, the Swissotel has a more accessible approach on offer; High tea via buffet. Traditionalists may have a hard time coming to grips with the concept of a high tea buffet until they see the beauty of having everything laid out on a table. Traditional items like cucumber sandwiches can be had but there is also a hot food buffet. All this will seem a bit over the top until you hit the dessert table where a fine offer of sweet tarts and creamy cheese cakes are available. Personalised service may not be the thing here but if you have a solid appetite and like sweets then you will love the high tea here.

AA’s Guide To Private Beaches in and Around Sydney

As a Sydney native, it makes me cringe every time I see a TV spot talking about Bondi beach as if that’s THE beach to hit. Don’t get me wrong. I love Bondi. What bothers me is that it does overshadow all the private beaches in Sydney that most either don’t know about or won’t talk about.

Look. Bondi is definitely worth checking out if you want to get a glance at the Sydney beach scene. But if you are a real beach bummer looking for the very best, then you must add the following 5 private beaches to your itinerary:

In the mood for your own beach adventure with an elite escort? See who’s available today here

Congwong Beach, La Perouse

Congwong beach is the perfect spot to lay around for a laid back beach experience. If you are a family, you won’t have to worry about sheltering your children from surfers crashing into the waves as the water here is calm and peaceful. It is located just off Anzac parade in Botany Bay National Park. If you are checking it out on a weekend, be sure to grab an ice cream from the ice-cream boat that pops in. You can get there by bus on the L94 from the city.

Bungan Beach, Barrenjoey Peninsula

Looking to combine your beach day with some stunning nature? Then head to Bungan beach. Sydney is a lovely city but the chaos of it can be overwhelming which is why I like to escape to Bungan beach when I need a relief from the crowds. The raw beauty of the surrounding cliffs make you feel as though you’re going on an adventure and walkers will love the scenery that wraps around the beach. The tides here can be pretty rough so just make sure you stick between the flags. The beach is located by access along Barrenjoey road, just before it descends into Newport.

Store Beach, Manly

This exclusive beach is a bit of a mission to get to as you can only arrive by boat or through kayaking. I suggest doing the kayak which you can rent from the hire shop at Manly Wharf. When you get there, you will quickly forget that you are even on city beach as the beach is surrounded with lush vegetation. There are no amenities there so what I love to do is pack some food and have a relaxing picnic on the beach. As a bonus, you could even pop by another hidden beach, Collins Flat beach on the way back to see the marvellous waterfall. The easiest way to get to Store beach is to catch the Manly Ferry from Circular Quay.

Milk Beach, Vaucluse

This beach is probably one of Sydney’s best hidden gems. Whether you just want to work on your tan, go snorkelling or do some fishing, you’ll be able to do it all at Milk Beach while enjoying the suburb views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and city skyline. You can access it through a track from Strickland House, or the track which goes from Hermitage Foreshore Reserve to Nielsen Park.

Gordon’s Bay

Gordon’s bay is perhaps one of the most unique hidden beaches in Sydney as it is the only one with an underwater nature trail. Located in the heart of the Eastern suburbs, this tiny gem is for those who appreciate calm waters, making it a fantastic spot to snorkel. The local fishing beaches which line the beach along with the apartments and surrounding nature create a majestic backdrop. You will also enjoy some of the most stunning coastal walking trails in the city. The beach can be accessed via a coastal walk on Gordon Avenue in South Clovelly.

Fashion Trends Coming To Sydney this Season

New York fashion week was just a few short weeks ago and though some of the stuff, as usual, was a bit off the wall, there are some exciting new fashion trends on the horizon. Working with a group of insanely sexy women, fashion naturally comes up from time to time. If you were lucky enough to go to our party earlier this month, then you got to bear witness to our ladies flaunting some of their finest threads. Here are a couple of the hottest trends this season. Let us know what you like best in the comments below!

The Reign of Corsetry

 

Corsetry is all about flaunting your bra inside out, and it has emerged as the hottest trend of the season. It requires you to pair your bras atop your printed floral numbers frilly tops and much more. However, Victoria Beckham has given us a massively powerful inspiration to flaunt this trend with a bold masculine flair by pairing it atop monochromatic suit separates. This trend is all the rage in street style, and you must checkout Alexander Wang, Tony Burch and Philip Lim for all the inspiration you could possibly need to flaunt it.

Bolder & Deeper

Ladies, if you love flaunting your shapely arms and sexy shoulders in the off-the-shoulder trend, get ready to rock this trend on a whole new level. This season, designers have revamped the off-the-shoulder to a seriously glamorous hilt, and these insanely bold pieces are all the more revealing and deep. We see plenty of off-the-shoulder wrap dresses that reveal a lot more than the shoulder, along with choker-style necklines, strappy cold shoulders and much more. These almost-falling-off tops are just what you need to rock to emerge as the most glamorous diva in Sydney’s vibrant nightlife.

Lacy Cascades of Ruffles

For a drop dead gorgeous formal statement, which also happens to be perfectly on-point with the intensely bohemian vibes of the Australian countryside, you must settle for nothing except ruffled up lace numbers. These sheer lacy delights will wrap themselves provocatively around your lusciously curvaceous figure, while the cascading ruffles will create a wondrous delight as they run down in tiers from your neckline to the waist and hemline. This is the just trend a woman needs to ravish her inner goddess and feel downright sexy. Since Spring races are a festive affair in Sydney, these lacy delights are right on-point for the occasion!

Glamorous Ankles

This spring, designers have given us a remarkable lesson on striking all the right chords of sensual glamour, and it involves turning up the bling on our ankles and making them the center of all attention. From delicate chains, crystal cuffs, glided anklets and heavy charms, there are so many excitingly sexy anklets that can oomph up your glamour and make your high heeled feet look all the more chic. You must flaunt these chunky delights with your bikinis as you make your way to Sidney’s breathtaking beaches.

Zoe in Her Seductively Sheer Bikini

Seductively Sheer

Sheer fabrics and gowns are most certainly here to stay, and designers are really testing our comfort levels this season, because sheer has gotten all the more outrageously bold. From elegant skirts that break in to cascades of leg-revealing sheer fabrics, to transparent gowns and sheer briefs, DKNY, Delpozo, Coach and Anna Sui have given us some raunchily seductive #sheergoals!
