Zinc, essential to many things, including immune system support and sunburn prophylaxis. This latter is especially important if you’re down at Cronulla’s famous southern Sydney beaches and, if sunbaking and surfing tends to incubate a mighty thirst and hunger you’ve got Zinc Bar to turn to when you need a little help. Ideally located at the foot of Kingsway (off Gerrale Street and McDonald Street strictly speaking), between South Cronulla beach and the main strand, Zinc Bar is a one stop refreshment shop for lovers of sun and surf.

Open midweek from noon until late and all day over the weekend, Zinc Bar has you covered if you’re beachside in Sydney’s Cronulla. Zinc has a McDonald Street address proper, but it’s easier to simply head straight for the surf down Kingsway and find Zinc sitting pretty on the corner with Gerrale Street. You can’t miss it with its raised and shaded terrace area packed with patrons enjoying superlative bistro fare in a chilled and unpretentious setting. Afternoons are long here, so book a table and kick back with friends and family.
Zinc Bar is also a restaurant, equipped with a menu that is perfectly suited to its Cronulla beachside setting. Skip from the briny to Zinc and a plate of salt and pepper calamari or simple beer battered onion rings for post-swim satisfaction, or venture deeper with mouthwatering grills like Egyptian chicken or marinated beef skewers. If you’re with a group, go for Zinc’s share plates – classic Italian antipasti or the premium cheese board loaded with Tasman double brie and Viking blue vein among others. Our picks for the most compatible eats here are the Sydney rock oysters by the half or whole dozen, kept natural or jazzed up with Kilpatrick or Mornay sauces. Best bet’s to order up the platter and sample 4 of each.
