Experience the best of what Sydney has to offer; explore the multitude of dining options and the culmination of unique dinner venues inspired by the four elements in nature!


The first thing that comes to mind when a mention of water in Sydney comes up is the illustrious harbour. The best way to take in the renowned sights of the harbour highlights is on a Sydney Harbour dinner cruise. Discover the magic of cruising with unparalleled roving views and unique inclusions, depending on the vessel you choose. Listed below are details of two popular Sydney dinner cruises reserving their own charm that slowly continue to scale the ranks of Sydney’s must-do experiences for locals and tourists alike.

For those looking to indulge, a Sydney Harbour dinner cruise on a glassboat is highly recommended. The luxe interiors echo bespoke luxury standards and the glassboat offers 360° views of the harbour against the night sky. To top this all off, tantalise your tastebuds with a premium 8-course seafood degustation menu. With only adults allowed on board, this is all-in-all an exclusive and luxurious affair.

On the other hand, those looking for a hint of glamour and an evening of fun on Sydney Harbour, a dinner cruise on an authentic paddlewheeler is sure to impress. Watch upbeat performances by agile dancers and songstresses taking centre stage as you enjoy a delectable 3-course dinner!


When it comes to landscapes, Australia refuses to fall behind; what with its bushwalks, heritage hotels, fauna and flora rich plains and parks. You could either choose to spend a day feeling one with nature as you take in the sights and sounds that surround you in a National Park as you enjoy a delicious picnic. On the other hand, if a dinner in a heritage hotel is more your cup of tea, we give you an insight into that experience as well!

Ku-Ring-Gai National Park lies slightly North of Sydney and is an amalgamation of different landscapes so you get the best of, not just both but, all worlds! Pack a picnic or setup a barbie in one of the many scenic spots in the Ku-Ring-Gai National Park.

Australian Heritage Hotel offers a unique experience of dining in a local favourite watering hole. With pub-style dining and gourmet kangaroo, emu and crocodile dishes on the menu, this is definitely one of those much-talked about and instagrammable dinner must-dos!


The first thing that pops up when one says fire is a true blue Aussie-style barbie. But we’ve been there, done that several times before. For a unique experience of sorts, a Korean BBQ is definitely on this list. For a more premium experience, I’d urge you to consider reserving a table in Firedoor. This restaurant employs no gas or electricity and all the action happens using woodfired ovens, grills and wood-burning alone. Such a brilliant concept!


Dinner in the Sky sounds like something out of a fantasy but this pop-up experience has Sydney in ‘high spirits’. A unique dining phenomenon, a sky table suspended 50 metres in the air from a crane has the guests on the edge of their seats (thankfully, only metaphorically). Truly an unforgettable aerial experience! If a sit down affair is more your deal, consider reserving a table in a 360° revolving bar and dining establishment. Bird-eye views of your favourite city as you dine in luxury is truly fabulous to say the least!

So now you don’t have to rack your brains, for unique dinner ideas in Sydney across terrains.
