10 of the best Sunday roasts in Sydney

Australians love a hearty Sunday roast.

The meal, an inherent part of our colonial culture, was traditionally served after a Sunday church service to break the day’s fast.

Now, it’s enjoyed more broadly and is a great excuse to bring the family together.

Rather than making one yourself, and waiting hours for it to cook, why not get someone else to do the hard work for you?
