WHERE TO STAY: Fullerton Ho­tel Syd­ney Newly opened in Oc­to­ber 2019, the Fullerton Ho­tel Syd­ney is the per­fect hon­ey­moon des­ti­na­tion for his­tory buffs. The ma­jes­tic her­itage ho­tel, sis­ter prop­erty of the Fullerton Ho­tel Sin­ga­pore, oc­cu­pies a prime lo­ca­tion in Martin Place in the mid­dle of Syd­ney’s Cen­tral Busi­ness District, in­side the for­mer Gen­eral Post Of­fice (GPO) build­ing.

With 416 rooms and suites, new­ly­weds can en­joy five-star treat­ment and ex­clu­sive perks in­clud­ing late check-in, pre­mium ameni­ties and a com­pli­men­tary up­grade (de­pend­ing on avail­abil­ity). Cou­ples can also in­dulge in a fu­sion of cul­tures at the ho­tel’s main restau­rant, The Place, which serves a mix of mod­ern Aus­tralian cui­sine and au­then­tic South­east Asian dishes in­side a light-filled, six-storey glass atrium over­look­ing the GPO. Must-try dishes in­clude Sin­ga­porean chicken rice and spicy seafood laksa, but cou­ples shouldn’t miss out on a true Fullerton tra­di­tion, the sig­na­ture af­ter­noon tea set at The Bar, stacked with sweet and savoury items in­clud­ing fluffy scones, served with TWG teas.

Hon­ey­moon­ers will love the ho­tel’s com­pli­men­tary 90-minute her­itage tours, lim­ited to small groups, that ex­plore the build­ing’s vi­brant his­tory, which dates back to 1874. Cou­ples will be guided through lit­tle-known facts about the build­ing and its in­tri­cate stonework, in­clud­ing the con­tro­ver­sial Pitt Street carv­ings that of­fer a glimpse into what life used to be like in Syd­ney’s early days. Other Fullerton ex­pe­ri­ences for cou­ples in­clude be­spoke itin­er­ar­ies re­volv­ing around her­itage, cul­ture, art and din­ing, mak­ing for a mem­o­rable, his­toric hon­ey­moon.
