There’s 24k Magic in the air as Sydney’s supercharged events calendar brings a galaxy of stars to town – including pop legend Bruno Mars. Lace up your boogie boots for his Live and Exclusive show at Allianz Stadium, and make the most of the city’s buzz with your own A-list experiences. Here, just a few that’ll make you feel like a rock star. Don’t believe us? Just watch...

Wanna Be a Billionaire? Hit the harbour

The city’s glistening centrepiece, Sydney Harbour is the playground of the rich and fabulous. Take your place amongst the sails and superyachts aboard a luxury charter such as The Hiilani, one of Bruno’s favourites. Feel like you have the whole place to yourself on secluded Store Beach – only accessible by boat – or between Australia’s plushest homes at Lady Martins Beach. Or, bask in the sky-high views on an exclusive Sydney Seaplanes adventure or evening heli flight, where the whole harbour becomes a sea of sparkles just for you.

Where to Wake Up in the Sky

Live your own opulent version of The Lazy Song in a lush five-star hotel, where sweeping views add a new level of grandeur to your stays. For lavish suites with outstanding harbour panoramas, kick back at The Langham. At Barangaroo, Crown Towers is a luxury oasis with a Sky Deck and infinity pool, while the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour pairs soaring views with sophisticated urban resort vibes. In the city centre, the Kimpton Margot's blend of Art Deco extravagance and modern refinement make for an elegant A-list-worthy stay.

Too hot, hot damn: best tickets in town

In between receiving the VIP treatment at a host of sporting events and concerts, soak up the magic as the city’s sparkling backdrop enhances every world-class show. Marvel beneath the stars as Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour presents Madama Butterfly, or cruise to Cockatoo Island aboard La Dolce Vita for Carmen, revelling in the skyline as each drama unfolds. Or, take an exclusive look behind the Sydney Opera House’s scenes before enjoying The Phantom of the Opera and a meal at Bennelong, where you’ll feast your eyes on the awe-inspiring Sydney Harbour Bridge while keeping a side-eye casually peeled for celebrities.

Five-star dining, That’s What I Like

Savour the flavours as Australia’s culinary stars serve up solid gold dining experiences at exclusive eateries. At Quay, Executive Chef Peter Gilmore’s eight-course degustation features Southern Rock lobster sashimi, braised squid and billion-dollar harbour views. At nearby Oncore, Michelin-Starred Clare Smyth’s first international restaurant showcases sustainable ingredients paired with prestige wines and moreish vistas. And across the city, Sixpenny, Catalina Rose Bay and Bentley Restaurant + Bar are lauded as much for their innovative dishes as their laidback luxury.

Runaway Baby: make your escape

Seeking a private relaxation station in nature? Reclaim your calm at the exclusive Pretty Beach House, just 90 minutes’ drive from Sydney in Bouddi National Park. Charter a private jet and fly to Lord Howe Island – where Capella Lodge and Island House are celebrity favourites thanks to their plush touches and next-level privacy. Craving a tree change? Take a heli transfer to Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, where the best of the Blue Mountains wilderness meets first-class accommodation; or, spend a day exploring the Hunter on Brokenwood’s VIP Soil to Cellar experience, where you’ll taste and collect award-winning wines Too Good To Say Goodbye to.

Feel the Uptown Funk in exclusive bars

Head to Sydney’s swankiest saloons for statement cocktails and A-list guest lists. At Alice in The Rocks, treat the crew to premium bubbles and snack on Sterling Caviar in your velvet-clad booth. At award-winning Zephyr, there’s an exclusive range of gins and outstanding Darling Harbour views. The vistas continue at the city’s highest watering hole, Bar 83, perched atop the iconic Sydney Tower. And at Employees Only, you’ll get a taste of the good life thanks to their Billionaire cocktail, burlesque dancers, psychic readings and New York-inspired décor.

Can I Just Stay Here? Spas for stars

Refresh your senses with an energising session at an exclusive Zen zone. Choose your own pampering adventure at Chi, The Spa at Shangri-La, where traditional techniques meet Australian botanicals to leave you feeling as satisfied as a rock star during encore. At The Darling Spa, there’s an impressive treatment menu, a luxurious Moroccan Hammam and exclusive couple suites to get you glowing; meanwhile The Spa Park Hyatt’s plush environs also feature a rooftop pool and private terrace just for spa guests.

Find Your Treasure in chic boutiques

Whether you love “Cuban links and designer minks”, or Leave your Versace on the Floor, Sydney’s boutiques are a wonderland for lovers of luxe labels. Shop in 19th Century grandeur at the Strand Arcade and Queen Victoria Building, both home to an impressive range of designer stores. The sartorial treasure trail continues across the city, with refined Mosman home to specialty showrooms in Heritage-listed buildings, and the Paddington Intersection a celebrity favourite thanks to its plethora of high-end boutiques. Prefer to kick it rock-star style and let someone else do the legwork? Hire a personal stylist find the treasure for you.
