Sydney Romance Holiday Guide

If Paris is the city of romance, then Sydney is city of elegant sassy, reclining by the water, fluttering her eyes, flashing a come hither smile, waiting to seduce the two of you with a weekend of pampering, gourmet delights and eclectic ways to get playful again.

Day 1: If you’re going to be gazing into each other’s eyes all weekend, we best get you scrubbed up to your sensation best for the occasion:

  • Book a heavenly Day Spa Couples treatment with organic herbal tea, billabong footbath and aromatherapy massage. Feel the worries of the world back home melt away as those lovin’ vibes fill the room.
  • Now that you ‘know how to look good naked’, go shopping at the Queen Victoria Building, David Jones and Myer in the CBD for some night on the town threads.
  • Strike a Blue Steel pose as you glam up at makeover and photography session. You can choose the venue – perhaps a shot under the Harbour Bridge, by the Opera House or even in your hotel room.
  • Start your evening feeding each other exotic fruit dipped in warm Belgian chocolate sauce at the Guylian Belgian Chocolate Café at The Rocks. Then wander over to equally decadent Sydney Cove Oyster Bar for a dozen aphrodisiac a la natural and a bubbly by the glass.

Day 2: Whether you get steamy in the kitchen or let someone else pamper your palate, we suggest you skip the hotel breakfast today and head out on a romantic eating escapade:

  • Kick off your shoes and squish through the sand at Coogee Beach. Head up to Barzura for a coffee with eggs or pancakes before wandering over to Gelatissimo to make gelato and then sample your icy delicious Italian love children.
  • Fancy lunch amongst the vineyards? Take a helicopter ride over the Sydney skyline and out to the Hunter Valley where you’ll be dropped off at a romantic spot, complete with gourmet picnic hamper – and be back before the sun sets.
  • If you’re amorous pining isn’t satiated after that day head to the Docks Hotel Karaoke Bar at Darling Harbour and serenade each other over pizza or if it’s a Sunday, hit the dancefloor with scorching latin sounds.

Day 3: Picking up takes on a whole new meaning with your loved one on these moving excursions:

  • Swing from the rafters while you get hot and sweaty – and put your mutual trust to the test - with a Flying Trapeze Workshop for two at Homebush.
  • Turn heads as you take a drive around Sydney in the lap of luxury behind the wheel of a Mercedes Benz CLK 240 sports car. You can rent one for the day or the whole weekend.
  • Soak up a lazy afternoon on a Sydney Lunch Cruise with live jazz on the harbour.
  • What better way to lather the icing on your romantic weekend cake than with an 8-course grand tasting indulgence at Neil Perry’s world renowned restaurant, Rockpool.

Recommended Sydney Romantic Hotels:

  • Kiss under the moonlight on the private pontoon of the Sebel Pier One Sydney. The rooms are stunning and the cocktail bar built for watching the night come alive over the most stunning harbour of the world.
  • There’s something very Bond about Star City Hotel, where right outside your Harbour View room door you can flirt with danger in the casino and then with your partner over martinis at one of the eight in-house bars.
