Foodie fun in Sydney and Byron Bay

17:30 AEST Sat Feb 9 2013

The Byron at Byron Resort & Spa

Byron Bay on the northern New South Wales coast began life as a haven for hippies and surfies, but over the last thirty or so years, it has transformed into one of the most cosmopolitan towns in the country.

There are still people enjoying alternate lifestyles and others seeking the perfect wave, but that's probably not why Byron was voted number one destination in the world by European travellers in a poll by TripAdvisor.

Catriona went to The Byron, the town's largest 5-star property. It's on 18 hectares of sub-tropical rainforest and has attracted likes of Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Elle Macpherson and Delta Goodrem. They spend their lives in the spotlight and when they want to relax, they usually want to go somewhere they ensure privacy.

Sydney Seafood School

Dermott went to Pyrmont on the edge of Sydney's CBD to the fish market, the largest in the southern hemisphere. There you will find an amazing array of seafood, as fresh as can be. You can buy to take home, have one of the restaurants prepare it or, if you're feeling adventurous, learn to prepare and cook it yourself right there.
