From Sydney Opera House's structural brilliance to the silky smooth sands of Bondi Beach, Australia's most famous city is brimming with many treasures. From resorts with ocean views to globally recognized restaurants, you'll be able to enjoy Sydney in style.
For instance, you'll find the most lavish casino Australia has to offer a resident of The Emerald City. Sure, Sydney might not be the top destination for tourists seeking the most luxurious experiences. However, it is home to unmatched lavish experiences, made extra special with the unique heritage of the city. So what are the most lavish things you could do when visiting Sydney?
Private Jet to Jonah's Whale Beach
Our first suggestion is a no-brainer two-in-one. Private jets are always synonymous with luxury experiences. Going for that extra expenditure is guaranteed to transform your typical in-the-box trip into a once-in-a-lifetime experience, especially if you're heading to the epitome of luxurious living in Sydney, Jonah's Whale Beach Restaurant and Boutique Hotel.
Jonah's is located on Sydney's northern beaches, less than an hour north of the Central Business District, or even much quicker by seaplane. You may board the plane from Rose Bay and fly over Sydney Harbour, up over the beaches and Barrenjoey Headland, before landing at Pittwater and being taken to the property.
The boutique hotel is divided over two buildings and has just 11 Ocean Retreat Rooms. Jonah's Private, a remote structure next to the main building with its own entrance, a huge private balcony, and a swimming pool, is not visible from the street. The rooms aren't spacious, but the natural colors, wood, and brass finishes, as well as the basic décor, give them a roomy impression.
Handa Opera on The Harbour
On the beautiful Handa Opera stage in Sydney Harbour, you can attend the world's most renowned opera show. The annual month-long festival takes place on a custom-built water-top stage on Sydney Harbour, with a breathtaking backdrop of the Sydney Opera House. The spectacular outdoor stage is roughly double the size of any indoor theatrical stage in the country, making it unlike anything else you've ever seen.
Mouthwatering cuisine serenaded with fireworks, sunsets, and champagne, makes for the most lavish experience ever: it's the best that Sydney has to offer in a single sitting, attracting tourists from all over the world. On Sydney Harbour, the Handa Opera has become the year's most important cultural event.
Wine Tasting at Catalina Rose Bay
If you're looking for a dining experience to remember, forget about magnificent harbor views and expensive cuisine; Catalina Rose Bay's red wine selection is on another level. You can share a single Domain De La Romanee-Conti Romanee-Conti bottle, one of the world's most expensive wine bottles, for roughly $11,000.
To the rest of the world, Sydney is one of the best destinations for beach or arts and culture hobbyists. That said, there is a lavish side that is seldom mentioned when talking about Sydney. Try out some of these lavish experiences, and you’re sure to see Sydney in a new light.
