Day 1: Start things off with a Sydney Harbour dinner cruise with a drinks package
For your first night out in the city, we would highly recommend a Magistic Sydney Harbour dinner cruise with an unlimited buffet and drinks. The luxury catamaran has large outdoor decks perfect for seeing the illuminated spectacular Sydney Harbour while on the dinner cruise. Also included with this Magistic dinner cruise in Sydney is an unlimited buffet and drinks package.
However, if you’re someone who prefers a seated-and-served menu over a buffet, cruise aggregators like Sydney Harbour Dinner Cruises can help you find one that fits your needs just right. If you’re looking for an option with entertainment, a Sydney Showboat dinner cruise experience with a cabaret show is perfect! There’s also a luxury Clearview glass boat dinner cruise offering 360° Sydney Harbour views and a brilliant 8-course degustation menu and premium beverages.

Day 2: The beach and Bondi Hardware
Spend the first half of the day in true Aussie style, sunbaking on Bondi! Once you’re done with your day at your beach (are we ever really done?), head on over to Bondi Hardware to commence your drinking for the day. This Bondi favourite spot features an extensive list of wines and beers, creative cocktails, hard spirits and absolutely delicious food selection. If you’re still hungover from the previous night, they also have an interesting selection of (alcoholic) hangover cures!
Day 3: Sydney’s most iconic nightclub Marquee to end the night (and 3-days worth of lightly overworking your liver)
Coming from the family of Marquee Nightclubs in Las Vegas and New York, Marquee Sydney is a hot choice among music lovers and celebrities alike. The club hosts some of the most popular local and international artists in its uber-chic space.
