Ben­ne­long

It isn’t of­ten you get the chance to eat in­side a world-class cul­tural land­mark, but that’s ex­actly what’s on of­fer at Ben­ne­long, the restau­rant in Syd­ney Opera House. For the ul­ti­mate ro­man­tic din­ner à deux, new­ly­weds can eat un­der­neath the build­ing’s iconic sails in a daz­zlingly lit, glass and wood-ceilinged space, with dishes in­clud­ing con­fit duck with blue­ber­ries, Kam­pot pep­per, black fungi and ume­boshi, and their ver­sion of the pavlova —a sweet, de­li­cious replica of the opera house.

The Rocks Mar­kets

Just a short walk from the ho­tel, The Rocks Mar­kets pro­vide a chance to browse lo­cal ar­ti­sanal prod­ucts in a his­toric district of quaint cob­ble­stoned streets right next to the har­bour. Open on Fri­days from 9am to 3pm and Satur­days and Sun­days from 10am to 5pm, the mar­kets fea­ture more than 100 stalls sell­ing ev­ery­thing from fash­ion and jew­ellery to art and home­wares to health and beauty. There are also free work­shops on sub­jects rang­ing from per­fume mak­ing to photograph­y, as well as a col­lec­tion of gourmet street-food op­tions.

Wat­sons Bay

See Syd­ney’s world-fa­mous har­bour from the sea by tak­ing the pub­lic ferry to Wat­sons Bay, a penin­sula guard­ing the en­trance to Syd­ney Har­bour. The jour­ney comes with prime views of the Har­bour Bridge and Syd­ney Opera House and takes less than 20 min­utes from Cir­cu­lar Quay in the heart of down­town Syd­ney. When you get there, Wat­sons Bay of­fers wa­ter­front seafood restau­rants, beau­ti­ful hik­ing trails and the his­toric Hornby Light­house.
