During our trip to Sydney, there was one pilgrimage that we must make and that's to the famous Krispy Kreme!!! They are originally from USA but they manage to travel across a few oceans to get to Down Under :D
Personally I am not a big fan of donuts but after trying the chocolate donut and various glazed donuts from KK, I still dream of its delicious texture -_- They are only in Sydney and their locations can be found in their website shown ;)

Held in late September each year, check out the below website closer to the date for exact times.
Wherever you go in Australia you'll find an RSL (diggers) club, a bowls club, a leagues club, a golf club, or any other kind of club. They range from pretty snazzy types (complete with wanker doormen) to a plain looking building with a bar, a few stools and a couple hundred pokies.
These places are a great place for a feed, and a cheap place for a drink. Sometimes you can come away from the bar with a couple of drinks and change from $5!
You have to sign in at the door for entry, but that's no problem, only for membership rules. Basically anyone living within 5km of the club has to be a member to get in.
This place is a cornucopia for a traveler on a budget. Not really a hotel, but rather a combination of a bar, a Thai restaurant, and a FREE internet cafe. The bar on the 1st floor seems to be frequented by locals as well as the lunch crowd, and the brews are pretty cheap for center of Sydney. The Thai place on the 2nd floor, Alice Thai restaurant (see my tip on that) is decent place for lunch that will fill you up for only A$7. And you just can't beat the totally free (don't even have to buy food or drink there) internet cafe on the very top floor. The connection isn't the fastest in the world, but it is faster than dial up, and did I mention that it won't cost you a cent?
