If your perfect holiday involves fast cars, top shelf wines, five-star accommodation and luxury yachts, then this list was made for you. Here are six fancy things you can do if your adventures take you down to Sydney and you happen to have some extra cash to splurge. Take a look!
Rent a yacht at Sydney Harbour
If you want to enjoy Sydney from the sea, go to famous Sydney Harbour and rent a luxury yacht. You can spend an amazing afternoon cruising on one of the Sydney Harbour Exclusive’s superyachts for an ultimate high-class experience. You’re not going to want to get off board, but make an exception and visit some of the decadent restaurants of Rose Bay such as China Doll or Catalina Restaurant. You will also get to drink champagne while you slowly cruise by the Sydney Opera House and Point Piper exclusive properties.
Supercar drive to Hunter Valley
If you’re a car lover and can’t resist an opportunity to try out a new type, this is an adventure for you. Rent a sports car and drive through Hunter Valley, one of Australia’s most important wine regions, just north of Sydney. You can choose between a Ferrari 488 GTB, Maserati GranTurismo, Lamborghini and many more exclusive sports cars and enjoy the ride of your life. You will also get to dine at some of Australia’s best restaurants and continue your ride with a full stomach. This is a definite must for all horsepower lovers out there.
Rent a private seaplane to Whale Beach
When you get sick of all the yachts and cars, you can take your trip to a new level and get to know Sydney from a new perspective. Rent a seaplane and enjoy flying along the northern beaches, from Rose Bay all the way to famous Jonah’s. Jonah’s is one of the best restaurants in Sydney that offers some amazing seafood, high-quality wines, and a breathtaking hill view of Whale Beach. End that amazing day with an evening flight back to Rose Bay, taking in the views of the Harbour and Sydney Opera House. A perfect idea for a first date!
Relax at the Langham Day Spa
High-end living can be stressful, so you have to take a day off and pamper yourself at the Day Spa at the Langham. They offer a variety of relaxing treatments that heal both body and soul, but you should try the Champagne & Gold Package and you’ll get to know what real relaxation means. You will get a professional massage and facial, a whole body treatment with specialty creams, a deluxe manicure and pedicure and all that while sipping on some top-shelf champagne. Ah…that’s what we call living!
Ascent the Sydney Harbour Bridge
If you’re a bit of a daredevil, you can test your nerves and book a private ascent up the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Instead of going with a standard group, you can ascent only with your better half and a personal instructor. This way, you will get to experience Sydney in a whole new light! And if you just can’t get enough of that postcard view, find luxury accommodation in Sydney near the Bridge and you can drink your morning coffee enjoying that classic Harbour view from your private terrace.
Splurge at the Queen Victoria Building
If you have some extra money to spend, make sure to visit the famous Queen Victoria Building. This is one of Sydney’s most impressive shopping centres where you can buy various fashion pieces from both Australian and other world-renowned designers. Don’t forget to check out Musson and Moi Moi jewellery stores, some of the most prestigious jewellers in Sydney.
From sailing the seas, cutting through the clouds and speeding in a supercar, to enjoying some of the best food in the world, Sydney can satisfy your every need, so go Down Under and indulge yourself!
