The Most Romantic Sydney Weekend Experiences

Romantic climb over Sydney Harbour Bridge

Planning a romantic Sydney weekend doesn’t have to be hard. But if you really want to surprise your loved one with something more extraordinary than a date night in the city, why not plan an experience that can literally take your romance to new heights like never before?

Research shows that giving someone an experience brings much more happiness than a material gift, and sharing those experiences together forms a stronger bond between one another.

So far as romantic date ideas go, a BridgeClimb over the Sydney Harbour Bridge definitely ticks all the boxes. Soaking up 360 views of the city up at the Summit with your loved one by your side is a uniquely, romantic experience you’ll both remember for years to come!

We’ve made it easy for you to plan the perfect couple’s weekend in Sydney by packaging our Climb with some amazing experiences, from a gourmet picnic with harbour views, to fine dining at two of Australia’s most celebrated restaurants. 

Here are some of our most romantic Sydney weekend experiences, that are sure to score you extra brownie points with your significant other. We’ve even included the best romantic stays in Sydney for your lovers weekend getaway or Sydney staycation

Dial-up the romance with a Dawn or Twilight Climb over sydney harbour bridge 

Nothing says romance like a climb during the sky’s most picturesque hours. Witness the sunrise over the harbour at dawn’s first light – or if you’re not keen on an early morning start, opt for the twilight hour where you can watch the colours of the sky melt into the evening, and see the city lights come to life. Gift a BridgeClimb booked at Dawn or Twilight for a truly unforgettable Sydney weekend experience.

For special celebrations, like birthdays or wedding anniversaries, consider giving a gift voucher so you can both climb on a day that suits you. We have a range of easily personalised gift vouchers available, all valid for three years from the issue date so you have plenty of time to use them.


After the climb, we recommend calling the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney home for the weekend where you can kick back and relax in sophisticated comfort, while staying close to the Sydney Harbour action. Here’s an idea, surprise your significant other and upgrade your 5-star stay with a deluxe romance package? The upgrade includes a fancy bottle of bubbly, treats, a signature Four Seasons Hotel breakfast delivered to your room, and a late check-out at 2pm. Just like in the movies!

Or another hotel home away from home we love is the eclectic art-deco QT Sydney. As rooms go, you can choose from a lavish QT Junior, Corner or State suite, situated right in the heart of the Sydney CBD with close access to the city’s fabulous drinking dens and restaurants. The hotel is currently offering a sweet deal at spaQ with access to 50% off spa treatments, which means when you book in a romantic couple getaway at QT Sydney, you’ll be able to claim that well-earned R&R after conquering your Sydney Harbour Bridge climb together! Tell them, we sent you ;)

Plan an over-the-top Sydney Harbour experience WITH BRIDGECLIMB PINNACLE

If adventure with style is more your lover’s taste, then, do we have an unforgettable couple’s experience that will truly knock their socks off. Que in our premium BridgeClimb Pinnacle package.

Combine the exhilaration of a Climb with the ultimate dining experience at Quay or Bennelong, two of Australia’s most awarded restaurants. Choose between a signature six or ten-course menu at Quay, created by three-hatted Executive Chef Peter Gilmore, or a three-course menu at Bennelong that encapsulates the essence of Australian fine cuisine beneath the sails of the Sydney Opera House. 

Want to add something special to your date, such as a limousine transfer, a private climb or a bouquet of flowers for your loved one on arrival? Just ask, the sky's the limit.



For the cherry-on-top of this decadent Sydney weekend experience, we recommend booking a stay at the Shangri-La Hotel Sydney with none other than a room with panoramic views of Sydney Harbour. It’s only a short walk from the BridgeClimb premises and the hotel offers a great Drive-In Package for out-of-towners or locals keen for a Sydney weekend escape. After dinner, our top tip is to b-line straight to the Blue Bar on 36 for a nightcap and to finish the day soaking in one of the hotel’s cosy and luxurious bathtubs. Add in some bubbles and bubbly to the mix, and it’ll be hard to be disappointed here!
