Top 10 Couples’ Must Do’s
Your romantic weekend in Sydney will be one to remember with special activities that are perfect for couples.
1. Relax with a spa treatment
Relax and reconnect with a couple’s massage treatment in our spa. Using luxury products in our tranquil environment, our therapists aim to leave you feeling rejuvenated.
2. INDULGE IN BREAKFAST IN BED
Let our In-Room Dining service take care of you with a leisurely breakfast in bed. From fresh croissants to a full Australian breakfast, choose your favourites and we'll deliver them to you piping hot while you enjoy the lie-in.
3. Take a picnic to the park
Let our Concierge arrange a gourmet picnic for two, then head to the Royal Botanic Gardens, a 12-hectare (30-acre) site right by the water. Sit under an oak tree with wine and cheese and enjoy the spectacular view of Sydney’s fascinating convict island, Fort Denison.
4. Share a memorable moment on the Bridge
A definite bucket-list item, climbing to the summit of the Sydney Harbour Bridge offers one-of-a-kind views of the eastern and western sides of Sydney. Climb at dawn or twilight for the best views of sunrise and sunset over Sydney.
5. Gaze at the stars
On one of Sydney’s highest points lies the Sydney Observatory. Open day and night, it allows star-gazing lovers to see the depth of the universe through telescopes and enjoy an informative talk by Sydney’s best astronomers. Just outside its doors, on Observatory Hill, take in the glittering city skyline and incredible views of the north side of the Harbour.
6. Drive a boat on Sydney Harbour
Charter a private boat and drive yourself under the Harbour Bridge. As you traverse around the Harbour, notice Kirribilli House, the residence of the Australian prime minister in Sydney, as well as Luna Park, Sydney’s only city amusement park. Moor at Atholl Bay and jump into the water for a safe and secluded swimming experience. To arrange your trip, talk to our Concierge.
7. Visit an Australian winery
The Hunter Valley, or Wine Country as it’s affectionately known, boasts the best wineries in Australia, and lies a three-hour drive from Sydney. Go for a spectacular hot-air balloon ride over the vineyards at dawn, taste a variety of red, white and sparkling wines at each cellar door, and relax with a treatment at the many day spas in the area.
8. Catch a show at the Opera House
From Shakespeare to ballet, contemporary dance to classical recitals, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at the iconic Sydney Opera House. The Opera House also champions Aboriginal dance performances – a fascinating insight into an incredible culture.
9. Sample cocktails at Grain Bar
Start your evening with classic and new cocktails expertly mixed by our experienced bartenders. Sweet or sour, martini or mojito?
10. Learn from the Romantics
Take a stroll through the Art Gallery and visit exhibitions of modern, romantic, classic, abstract and Asian art. Housed in an impressive 19th-century neoclassical landmark building, the Art Gallery is almost as impressive to look at as its exhibitions. Exhibitions change seasonally.
Celebrate a special occasion such as an anniversary or milestone birthday, unwind after your wedding day, or simply indulge in a romantic getaway for two.
