Lisa Wilkinson appeared relaxed as she stepped out in Sydney on Wednesday, after having announced she was leaving the Today show earlier this week.

The 57-year-old television presenter was seen taking a leisurely stroll, before popping into a bottle shop.

Opting for a cool and casual outfit, Lisa wore a black blouse teamed with a pair of white trousers.

She completed her look with a pair of large sunglasses and a weaved bag.

On Monday night Lisa announced she'd not return to Channel Nine's Today after a shock departure today, and will be starting a new role at rival network Channel Ten's The Project.

"I have some news. I'm sad to say that today was my last day on @the today show. The following statement is from Channel Nine..." she wrote on Twitter.
