Hg2 moves to Sydney exploring its dazzling array of hotels, restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, sights and spas. As ever we go incognito to uncover the most interesting places to visit - taking readers off the tourist track and showing them where the locals really hang out. Hg2 Sydney is intelligent, irreverent and inspired.

Michelle is a Sydney-based writer and editor who ditched a career as a news journalist to write about the finer things in life; namely travel, food and booze. Her love of exploration has taken her across the globe, with stints living in Japan, London and most recently Dubai, where she edited Time Out's stable of travel magazines. Michelle returned home to Sydney in 2009 where freelance work for publications like the Sydney Morning Herald, the Boston Globe, CNN Traveller, the Daily Telegraph, GQ and Cosmopolitan, along with a regular newspaper column about her urban escapades helps to fund her travel and cocktail habit. Michelle loves gin & tonics and expertly made Negronis, the Omani desert, palm trees, bossa nova, and summer days absorbing sun, salt and sand at Sydney beaches. What makes her a hedonist? My mantra.
