This is complete luxury. Not cheap at all, but if you've always wanted to stay in Sydney you can't beat the view of the harbour from here. I stayed on the 19th floor and from there I got an unobstructed view of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge in one amazing vista. It's better than the view from the Sky Tower.

If you can't afford a night there, you can always pop up to the bar on the top floor for a drink and a peer. It's important to dress smartly though--definitely no trainers or sports shoes.

This is the best view in Sydney. Time it at dusk and you'll sit for hours watching the sun set and the lights come on across the harbour.

Sydney Harbour is a picture postcard place and this is the perfect place to sit back and absorb it.

The staff are suitably snooty and unfriendly for a bar that thinks too much of itself--but ignore them and just take in the scenery.
