Review | The Grounds of Alexandria










If you live in Sydney you have bound to have heard this place before. Ring any bells? It has frequently appeared on my Instagram feed. My friends and I were keen to finally check this place out and I was setting up myself for disappointment because I thought this place was wellllllll overhyped.

To an extent, I was not wrong but I was more thoroughly surprised and delighted with my experience. Due to its popularity, we waited about an hour for lunch but there is so much to explore and do. The Grounds of Alexandria is known for its aesthetic, its lush vibrancy and natural wholeness. I do not really know what I'm saying here and I'm sounding a tad pretentious. There are little pastries, lemonade, a potting shed and a petting farm. The food there is good, nothing marvellous but nonetheless enjoyable but also affordable. I would definitely recommend checking this place out, especially with a couple of friends and having a nice lunch even if it does consist of hamburgers and chips. A real classic. This place really does have a pleasant atmosphere and I understand its attractiveness. 

It's only a short walk from St Peters station. (20 mins)  Whether I would frequently come here is another question but I will definitely come here in the near future.
