Lights, camera, Sydney! With its all-star cast of wonders, the harbour city has long been the creative industries capital of Asia Pacific– and inspired film-makers far and wide. Now its picturesque locations star alongside Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell  in the year’s most anticipated romcom, ‘Anyone But You’, lighting up cinemas from Boxing Day. Here, we explore the picturesque hotspots showcased in the film – and reveal why you’ll want them to star in your own 2024 storylines… 

Create your own Harbour blockbuster  

Garnished with the majestic Harbour Bridge, surprising islands, futuristic cityscapes and natural spaces, Sydney Harbour is the ultimate action setting – no special effects required. And whether it’s starring in a Hollywood montage or in your selfies, its inspiration leaps off the screen; you’ll feel it as you sip Veuve Cliquot aboard The Jackson and feast amongst the superyachts of Jones Bay Wharf. Ready for your own stunts? Aim high with a BridgeClimb experience, explore by chopper and ride the rush at Luna Park. Afterwards, breathe in the endless views of this living postcard from an opulent 32nd-floor bar

Live the A-list dream at the Sydney Opera House 

Make memories with your real-life co-stars in one of the world’s most glamorous settings. The Sydney Opera House is not just a pretty space – this architectural marvel is a lauded performance venue with a year-round calendar spanning everything from musicals to comedy. Explore its famous sails on a tour; dine inside them at Bennelong alongside where Peter Gilmore highlights local produce in an award-winning menu that impresses its celebrity patrons; and relax beside them at Opera Bar: the perfect spot to watch the sunset scatter its glitter behind the Harbour Bridge. 

Savour a delicious plot twist in Barangaroo 

On the harbour’s western shores, Barangaroo’s ultra-modern architecture is worthy of a sci-fi masterpiece – and its culinary experiences are equally enthralling. Level up your brew at The Precinct by Toby's Estate with classic espresso, Venezuelan hot chocolate and Punjabi chai. Weave through Barangaroo Reserve’s 75,000 native plants, swim at Marrinawi Cove and see the city lights flicker to life from rooftop bars like Smoke and CIRQ. Later on, stroll deeper into the neon skyline for late-night bites and sips in Darling Harbour, Chinatown and Haymarket. 

Flip the script with a Sydney shopping trip 

Whether you’re dressing for a premiere or the paparazzi, Sydney’s style pairs laidback sophistication with an eclectic twist – as you’ll see when browsing through the Queen Victoria Building, where 140 boutiques shine inside classic 19th Century architecture. Refresh your spree with high tea or pop into the Strand Arcade for a design fix before diving into Pitt Street Mall’s emporiums. Nearby, Paddington Intersection is a celebrity favourite with high-end retailers showcasing Australian design, all within easy reach of Oxford House – a chic stay with a standout poolside terrace

Step into a nature doco in Centennial Parklands 

Time for some quiet on the set? The Centennial Parklands are moments from the city centre, comprising three peaceful parks – Centennial, Moore and Queens. This sprawling oasis offers abundant opportunities to exhale amid stately Port Jackson figs, charming gardens and rainforest glades, and to enjoy picnics, golf, horse rides and walks with local experts. Further afield, Western Sydney Parklands’ vast spaces are a leaf’s throw from the Pullman Sydney Penrith – the area’s first five-star hotel. 

Be soothed by a Northern Beaches soundtrack 

Tinkling waves sing to the spectacular backdrop of golden sand, turquoise seas and luxe homes of North Palm and Station Beaches. Glistening on either side of Barrenjoey Head, these cinematic shores are a top spot to tune into nature’s melodies and choose your own adventure: between swims, stroll to Barrenjoey Lighthouse for jaw-dropping views to the Central Coast. Taste the good life with fresh seafood at Barrenjoey House, explore Pittwater by kayak, drift off to the ocean’s lullaby in a floating villa, and live your private-jet dream on a seaplane. 

Assemble your all-star cast in Tamarama  

Flanked by showstoppers Bondi and Coogee, Tamarama Beach is called ‘Glamarama’ because it’s the playground of Sydney’s chic and elite. It’s here you’ll find Marks Park, a stunning headland with scene-stealing panoramas of the eastern beaches, where Bondi Icebergs, Wylies Baths and Gordon’s Bay add to the city’s star power. Breathe it all in with your crew on the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, picking up a refreshing juice from Tamarama Beach Kiosk before heading to the park to watch nature’s spectacle unfold below, with migrating humpback whales making their cameo (between June and November).  

Marvel at Wahroonga’s wild special effects 

Embark on an outdoor adventure in Sydney’s north, where the manicured grounds of Wahroonga’s Cliff Oval and Reserve are surrounded by native bushland, setting the scene for wild discoveries aplenty. Take your pick of scenic trails leading through lush woodlands and atop escarpments dotted with rock climbers for epic views of Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park – where Aboriginal rock art, the famous Basin Campground and Hawkesbury river cruises await.
