Aussie actress Nicole Kidman has been showing billionaire producer Steve Bing the sights of Sydney, and the special tour included having dinner with her parents Anthony and Janelle this week.

The Oscar winner's sister Antonia also came along for the meal at the upmarket Aria restaurant, accompanied by her husband Angus.

Steve jetted into Australia last week to enjoy some time off with the actress. Over the weekend they were spotted at Nicole's Sydney home and several of the city's finest restaurants. The pair also found time for a round of golf, with Steve giving the 37-year-old some useful tips, before taking in a game of Aussie Rules Football.

Nic was first introduced to the movie mogul, who is the father of Liz Hurley's son Damian, at a Hollywood party last year. Since then there have been numerous reports of a romance, but for the moment their representatives are insisting they are just good friends. "Mr Bing was in town for business," said her publicist Wendy Day. "He then stayed for the weekend and, as he knows Nicole, of course she showed him the sights of Sydney."
