Take Mum to see the Pacific Opera, the Young Artists’ opera company. It’s fresh, vibrant opera with a twist, providing a platform for the stars of tomorrow. P.S. The show even starts with a yummy afternoon tea. Tickets here!

After tea, ya still need some dinner. Take a short stroll from The Independent Theatre and reach Monte Alto, a Mod Aussie eatery and bar where you and mum can relax and unwind. Our favourite? The house classic “Harajuku High” - a sweet yet sharp mix of Hakushu distiller’s reserve, yuzu, honey syrup and soda water. Mmmmm, coffee rubbed pork roast sounds delish, though the smokey pork ribs are their most popular.
