Bursting with natural beauty and exhilarating experiences, Sydney makes it easy to celebrate everything from birthdays and graduations to anniversaries and honeymoons in style on a short break. Settle into a luxe suite overlooking the dazzling harbour for an indulgent long weekend of wining, dining and adventures that’ll make your next milestone unforgettable.  

Gear up for a big day — or a big night 

Spoil yourself and your loved ones with an indulgent stay in an opulent suite, the perfect base for kicking off a celebration. Start the day in style by waking up to incredible views of Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Opera House at Park Hyatt Sydney, in the historic The Rocks precinct. If you’re in the mood to spare no expense, secure the Opera Suite, which boasts six private balconies looking out at Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House as well as seating for eight dinner guests, or the spacious two-bedroom Sydney Suite, which has its own outdoor terrace with equally stunning views.

Prepare to be pampered at The Langham Sydney, a city sanctuary tucked away on Kent Street, providing easy access to The Rocks and the Barangaroo dining hub. Boost your energy levels ahead of the evening with the Langham’s legendary Afternoon Tea with Wedgwood service, or indulge in a decadent treatment at the hotel’s The Day Spa by Chuan, after a dip in the whimsically decorated 20m indoor heated pool and a revitalising session in a steam room.

See the Sydney Opera House from a fresh perspective from your generously sized Opera King Room at Crown Towers Sydney, high up in the tallest building in Sydney in the Barangaroo precinct. Soak up mesmerising views as you watch the sun move over the harbour from one of the six-star hotel’s suites before heading downstairs for a celebratory dinner at Crown’s fine-dining restaurants, including Nobu Matsuhisa’s Nobu or Oncore by three-Michelin-starred British chef Clare Smyth.

Take the pulse of the city at QT Sydney, a quirky hotel combining modern interiors with a heritage twist in the heart of Sydney city’s retail precinct. Book the State Suite and recharge with a rainwater shower and a nap in the luxurious king-sized bed before reinvigorating your mind, body and soul with a pre-celebration reboot treatment at SpaQ.

Mark the moment with an unforgettable meal 

After you’ve settled into your hotel and indulged in a spa treatment, it’s time to clink your glasses. Kick off a celebratory evening at the entertaining Maybe Sammy bar in The Rocks, where you can soak up the glamour of the Art Deco interiors while marvelling at a theatrical cocktail created by award-winning mixologists.

Ease into the evening as you sip an Opera Sunset cocktail of rum, vermouth, amaro and grapefruit bitters while gazing at the uninterrupted Sydney Harbour views from high in the sky at Blu Bar on 36, one of the city’s most iconic bars, at Shangri-La Sydney in The Rocks. Take in equally impressive harbour views 32 storeys above the city centre at newly refurbished InterContinental Sydney’s at reservations-only rooftop Aster Bar. Or start a memorable evening on the rooftop at Smoke Bar at Barangaroo House, where the sophisticated cocktails are as refreshing as the harbour views.

Savour the six-course tasting menu at Quay, in the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay, where executive chef Peter Gilmore showcases the finest local ingredients in his inventive, nature-inspired dishes. It’s a magical dining experience that will leave you with a lasting impression. Gilmore is also the culinary genius behind Bennelong restaurant at the Sydney Opera House, where the food is equally spectacular and the cathedral-like space awe-inspiring.

Gather your inner circle in the private dining room at Cafe Sydney, on the fifth floor of the grand Customs House at Circular Quay, and take in the glorious views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge from the restaurant’s terrace. Or take a table in the main dining space for an incredible birthday dinner created by a passionate kitchen crew — order ahead to surprise the guest of honour with a bespoke celebration cake.

Don’t want the festivities to ever be over? Make a long weekend a series of indulgent experiences, starting with the decadent sunrise breakfast offered Thursday to Sunday mornings at Altitude restaurant, on the 36th floor of Shangri-La Sydney. Feast on a lobster omelette and toast the rising sun with a glass of champagne — upgrade to the caviar option and swap out the glass of Veuve Clicquot for Dom Pérignon to max out the moment.

Stretch your wings

Imbue your special occasion with a sense of adventure and hop on a seaplane to be whisked away for an epic dining experience at Jonah’s Restaurant and Boutique Hotel at Whale Beach. From the Sydney Seaplanes terminal in Rose Bay, your seaplane will thud over the waves as it gathers speed and roars off on an aerial tour of Sydney Harbour and the Northern Beaches before arriving at Jonah’s. Indulge in a delectable multi-course lunch while taking in the dazzling ocean view before taking a return seaplane ride back to the city.

Prolong your short break by turning a seaplane flight into an overnight stay. See Sydney Harbour reveal its hidden beaches from high above the waves on a Sydney by Seaplane flight from Rose Bay to Cottage Point Inn, a fine-dining waterfront restaurant hidden away in rugged Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park in Sydney’s north. Check into Cottage Point Inn’s one-bedroom apartment and soak up the views of Cowan Waters and Australia’s second-oldest national park before taking a seat at the restaurant for a glorious dinner you’ll never forget.

Make new memories 

Embrace the challenge of the three-hour return journey to the summit of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge with BridgeClimb Sydney, climbing over a thousand steps to be rewarded with panoramic views of the harbour. Enrich the experience with an authentic connection to Sydney’s Aboriginal heritage on BridgeClimb’s Burrawa Indigenous Experience as your Indigenous Storyteller guide tells stories of the Traditional Owners of the harbour that date back tens of thousands of years.

See Sydney Harbour from a different perspective on a Gold Penfolds Dinner Cruise with Captain Cook Cruises. Relish a six-course degustation menu matched with Penfolds wines while enjoying guaranteed window seating, live music and amazing views. Take in Sydney’s beauty from all angles as the cruise loops around the harbour twice.
