Located within boutique hotel QT Sydney, spaQ offers luxurious treatments for men and women. The vast spa menu includes body exfoliations, facial therapies and hand and nail treatments. The adjoining old-school barbershop has gained a reputation for its traditional wet-towel shaves. Pre-treatment, relax in spaQ’s hammam-inspired steam and ice room. A therapist will then help create a personalised experience to treat your individual needs. We recommend the 2.5-hour Plush Princess, which begins with a hibiscus- and jasmine-scented body scrub, followed by a full-body massage. The experience is completed with a balancing face massage using jasmine-infused organic oil.

Sydney’s CBD is rich with historic landmarks and places to take in panoramic views but traverse its low-key lanes and you’ll find some of the city’s best small bars, cafés and restaurants. Whisky lovers should head to Baxter Inn while Neil Perry’s Rockpool Bar & Grill attracts the culinary elite.
