The Paper Mill Food official opening in Liverpool

The Paper Mill Food, a unique new destination on the banks of the Georges River in Liverpool, will open to the public on Saturday 10 August. With four restaurants under one roof, open seven days for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and coffee, The Paper Mill Food is destined to become Western Sydney’s favourite food precinct.

Housed in a stunningly restored heritage building, The Paper Mill Food is a unique development for Western Sydney. The vibrant heart of an innovative residential community, brought to life by Coronation Property, The Paper Mill Food will elevate eating and event options in Sydney’s third CBD.

The Paper Mill Food restaurants include a café/bakery/dessert bar, a pizzeria, charcoal chicken and burger outlet, and a refined but casual a la carte restaurant specialising in meat and seafood cooked over charcoal and in the wood-fired oven. The Paper Mill Food reflects the cultural diversity of Sydney’s vibrant west and offers something for everyone, on every budget. There is also an extensive takeaway and delivery menu available.

The Paper Mill Food’s General Manager, Jason Chow, said: “There is nothing in Western Sydney like The Paper Mill Food. We spent considerable time researching what we were going to put into this space, as we wanted to make sure it was what the community of Liverpool and greater Western Sydney have been wanting and deserve. We’re excited to open with our take on Lebanese chicken, pizza, meats grilled over charcoal, and coffee and pastries.”

The Paper Mill Food is also the ideal venue for functions and celebrations of any size, with multiple private and semi-private spaces for events for 12 to 120 people. The striking design provides an impressive background for functions such as birthdays, christenings, hen’s parties and corporate events.

Dating from 1868 the building that was once Australia’s largest paper mill has been carefully transformed by leading designer Paul Papadopoulos of DS17, who has honoured the industrial legacy. Period features including original brickwork and the distinctive saw-toothed roof are retained, with contemporary updates in steel, glass and stone. No detail is overlooked, with features including bespoke timber joinery, Carrara marble and custom cast iron sculpting resembling 19th-century ovens.

An expansive hand-made mosaic tile floor is a highlight of the light-filled interior. Coronation Property has worked with hospitality specialist John Sahyoun of Karima Group to bring The Paper Mill Food to life.

Seabourn Announces 2021 World Cruise: Extraordinary Oceans

Seabourn, the world’s finest ultra-luxury cruise line, has announced a remarkable opportunity for guests to experience one of the world’s great travel adventures in style. It’s the 2021 World Cruise: Extraordinary Oceans, a 140-day round-the-world voyage aboard Seabourn Sojourn, set to visit 60 ports and destinations in 32 countries on six continents with unforgettable experiences to engage and enjoy along the way.

Scheduled to depart Miami on January 3, 2021, the World Cruise will sail east-to-west visiting Central America, the west coast of South America, the islands of the South Pacific, Australia, Indonesia, and Africa, before ending in Barcelona, Spain, on May 24, 2021. The World Cruise is now open for sale, and the entire itinerary is available to peruse on Seabourn’s website.

The new World Cruise itinerary is the work of Tim Littley, Seabourn’s senior director of itinerary planning, who designed it with “differentiation” in mind. “I wanted this World Cruise to be exploratory in nature, focused thematically on alluring destinations and experiences that are a blend of sought after favorites combined with other smaller, quaint ports that are perhaps a bit unknown to some,” Littley said.

Littley meticulously crafted an itinerary that will have guests excited and busy with dynamic experiences followed by opportunities to relax for a couple of days or more at sea in between port visits. “Even though we’re headed around the world, we’re comfortably wandering as we move from place to place. The cadence of the journey is designed to get guests into the rhythm of exploration with an equal amount of time to relax,” he said.

As the name of the World Cruise implies, Seabourn Sojourn will cross two great oceans – Pacific and Indian – as well as traverse the Atlantic Ocean along the coast of Africa. The 140-day voyage will include 10 overnights and linger late into the evening in 16 ports, offering guests ample opportunities to explore these fascinating destinations in depth.

For the first time, Seabourn will offer its popular “Ventures by Seabourn” program on a World Cruise, featuring an expert expedition team leading insightful explorations in the South Pacific. Optional kayaking, Zodiac, snorkeling and trekking tours will be available in French Polynesia, Cook Islands, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and more.

In addition, there will be exclusive world cruise events planned over the course of the journey for guests on the full 140-day voyage, as well as local entertainment, regional cuisines, and palate-pleasing wines for all guests to savor as they sail around the globe.
