With its stunning harbourside setting, iconic colonial and modern-era buildings, the well-preserved Rocks district and its outdoor sun and surf lifestyle, Sydney is blessed with superlatives. The vast harbour and shoreline, stunning beaches fronting picturesque bayside and hillside suburbs lie at its heart. Sydney encompasses nature and is itself encompassed by wilderness, in the form of several National Parks which surround the city, one of which borders the eastern shores of the splendid harbour itself.
Located on the city side of Darling Harbour, PARKROYAL Darling Harbour allows its guests 'on the doorstep' access to the many attractions, dining and nightlife choices for which the surrounding area is noted. Extensive renovations have provided the property with a modern, contemporary look and feel, immediately evident on entering the light and airy lobby area.

The Blue Mountains, blessed with inordinate natural beauty, are located to the west of Sydney and offer much to discover and enjoy. A blue haze produced by evaporating oils from the dense eucalyptus trees which carpet the deep, sandstone valley floors, gives the area its name.
The central sandstone escarpment which overlooks the surrounding valleys is home to several small, quaint and picturesque townships, including Wentworth Falls, Leura and Katoomba. A number of lookout points are located at the escarpment edge, each providing spectacular views over the many sandstone outcrops and the lush, green valley floors below. The Blue Mountains are popular with walkers, with many trails available to suit all levels of experience, winding through the dense bushland and wild valleys.
Lilianfels Blue Mountains Resort & Spa is set amongst two acres of gardens overlooking Echo Point and the famous Three Sisters. Rooms are traditionally designed with soft furnishings and elegant decor and guests can dine in a range of restaurants and bars. The sumptuous Blue Mountain Day Spa also awaits after a day of local sightseeing and exploration.
2 nights in a Deluxe Resort View Room at Lilianfels Blue Mountains Resort & Spa
Located to the north of Sydney is the Hunter Valley, home to one of Australia's oldest and best-known wine producing areas with old vines dating back to the 1800's. Wineries old and new pepper the valley, many of them offering cellar door access and the opportunity for visitors to sample their produce. Hunter Valley attractions don't stop with the wineries either. The region is also a popular centre for the production of 'artisan' chocolate, cheese, olive oil and local craft beer.
In the heart of the Hunter Valley, Hunter Valley Resort is a family owned and operated country inn, nestled within 45 year old shiraz vineyards on 70 secluded acres. Enjoy stunning views from the rooms and cottages or sample some of the home grown wine.
