Lovers of luxury unite, it’s time to treat yo’ self. 

If you’ve ever wondered how the other half live, let’s just say a little bit of luxury goes a long, long way. 

Never ones to shy away from indulgence, we’ve rounded up the most extravagant experiences Sydney has to offer. Dig deep into those pockets people- or find someone to treat you!

Get A Private Seaplane To Jonah’s

Whale Beach

Who likes cars anyway? Take your next date to a whole new level and fly along the northern beaches from Rose Bay to Jonah’s. For only $650 per person, your second date is pretty much a sure thing.

Dine At The Kitchen At Bennelong

Circular Quay

The Kitchen at Bennelong promises one of Australia’s most exclusive dining experiences, and with a minimum spend of $2200 for a table of four (the only table actually available), we wouldn’t expect anything less. Enjoy an eight-course menu, with the finest wine, and take in one of the best kitchen views in Australia.

Drink Wine At Catalina

Rose Bay

Forget stunning harbour views. Forget oysters. If you really want to impress your guests at Catalina, the red wine list is where it’s at. For just $11,000 a pop, you can share a drop of Domain De La Romanee-Conti Romanee-Conti (no, we don’t even know what that means, and yes, it must be better than anything else that’s ever tantalised our tastebuds before… we’re sure it must smell good too).

Devour Pasta at Bar Machiavelli

Rushcutters Bay

The best things in life might be free, but we’re telling you now, the $59 gnocchetti at Bar Machiavelli is worth every cent. Served with scampi, prawns and a herb and wine broth, every last bite of this delectable dish is pure pasta perfection.

Indulge Yourself At The Langham’s Day Spa


Pamper yourself to absolute perfection at The Day Spa by Chuan at The Langham. Offering a range of holistic treatments to soothe the body and mind, we suggest you truly indulge yourself with the $745 Champagne & Gold Package so you can forget what stress even means. Beginning with a massage and facial, followed by a whole body application of speciality shaping cream, you’ll surrender your nails to a deluxe mani-pedi, all while enjoying a very generous glass of Laurent-Perrier.

Order The Signature Burger at The Cut Bar & Grill

The Rocks

There are few things in life more expensive than cinema food but the $30 Signature David Blackmore Wagyu Beef Burger at Cut Bar and Grill comes pretty close. The country’s most expensive patty is delicately placed on a brioche bun with truffle, gruyere cheese and what must be a horseradish-mustard miracle sauce. Lucky for you, the chips are free.

Treat Yo’ Self to the Tasting Menu at Quay

Circular Quay

Whoever said “money can’t buy happiness” was straight up wrong. Have you tried the tasting menu at Quay!? For a measly $430 per person, you’ll not only dine on some of the best dishes this side of Sydney but throw back the best wines as well.

Break Out Your Boatshoes and sail away on The Hiilani

Sydney Harbour

Take a break from the concrete jungle and spend a luxurious day on the harbour, soaking up the sunshine and drinking only the best champagne the Hiilani has got to offer. The 95ft Italian super yacht boasts over three levels and is fully staffed, starting from $5,800 for half a day of happiness. Hot tip: grab your mates and chip in for this one.
