Sydney is the metropolitan crown jewel of Australia, surrounded by beautiful blue waters and splendid natural harbours, there is so much to see and experience. With its beauty and abundance of prime fine-dining and entertainment destinations, Sydney provides many opportunities for luxury travel. This blog post will cover the best Sydney luxury travel signature experiences that you cannot find anywhere else.
One of our favourite activities in Sydney is to take a seaplane to the northern beaches and have lunch at either The Boathouse or Jonah’s in Palm Beach, Berowra Waters Inn or Cottage Point Inn at Hawkesbury River.
The entire round trip experience takes approximately 4 hours and offers guests stunning views over Sydney harbour before enjoying a delicious meal in an authentic local environment. Each of them is uniquely different yet you cannot make a poor choice as they are all just as iconic as each other.
For those who would prefer to eat lunch closer to the city, we recommend at least taking a 15 minute flyover the harbour from Rose Bay before dining at the adjacent Catalina or Regatta restaurants.
Private Boat/Yacht Charter:
Sydney is home to arguably the most beautiful natural harbour in the world and we strongly recommend hiring a local guide to show you the sights and luxurious mansions from the water.
There are a variety of additional options such as visiting your skipper’s home for a local cooked meal, stopping at hidden beaches or hiking along coastal paths. Choose from small intimate vessels right through to extravagant superyachts with endless catering options.
Most of our clients will stay near Circular Quay and there are certainly some outstanding restaurants in the area such as Quay, Aria and Bennelong. However, we always encourage our clients to visit the local neighbourhoods such as Paddington for 10 William St or Fred’s, Porteno or Firedoor in Surry Hills and Automata or Ester in Chippendale.
These neighbourhoods can be as little as 10 minutes away from Circular Quay once the traffic eases after rush hour and you can choose to either have your chauffeur wait or return at your desired time.
For the serious food lovers, we can craft a tailored tour where you will meet the chefs themselves and even cook with them with enough advance notice.
Sydney may be the birthplace of modern Australia but for a truly unique and unforgettable experience, we encourage guests to immerse themselves with the indigenous Aboriginal culture.
You can fully customise your experience in advance but we recommend visiting an Aboriginal Art Gallery with exclusive access, see native plants up-close, throw a boomerang, play the didgeridoo and learn about their ancient culture as you walk along the traditional lands with a local elder.
That concludes our list of best Sydney luxury travel signature experiences. We guarantee they will all impress you in their own unique way even if you don’t go through every one of them in your next visit (we would rather you take the time to enjoy each one).
