To help you achieve this, we have prepared a list of things you should see and do. In other words, we'll give you some useful advice on how to live like Rockefellers while staying in Sydney.
Sydney is well-known for its luxurious five-star hotels, including the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney, the Shangri-La Hotel Sydney and the Park Hyatt Sydney which all boast a breathtaking view of the famous Sydney Harbour. You'll have a chance to savour delicious cocktails while sunbathing on the roof and try different types of whisky as well. The Four Season Hotel has the country's largest selection of whiskeys. These glamorous hotels offer spas, so you'll have an opportunity to enjoy relaxing massages, hydrotherapy baths, double Jacuzzis and so much more. At the end of your vacation you'll feel fresh and rejuvenated.
If you want to feel like a true celebrity, visit some of their favourite restaurants such as the new China Diner. A lot of Australian celebrities have been spotted in this venue, savouring various Asian dishes such as five-spice duck pancakes and prawn and sweet pea dumplings. Another great place to have lunch is the Bondi Icebergs Dining Room. This restaurant offers high-quality food prepared by experienced chefs, as well as an amazing view of the ocean. It's not surprising that Oprah Winfrey chose this place to dine at when she was in Sydney. Other great choices are Quay and Sepia.
If you really want to feel like a star, at least for a day, you should definitely go for a luxury car hire and take a trip to the Hunter Valley. There is no better feeling than riding in a Porsche or Lamborghini, turning your trip into the most enjoyable one ever. Once you've arrived at the Hunter Valley, the real hedonism begins since this place is renowned for the world's best wines. Aside from wine tasting, you should indulge in other activities as well, such as playing golf or visiting a spa. Furthermore, this is the perfect place to enjoy the breathtaking sunrise from a hot-air balloon.

If you want to get the ultimate Sydney experience, go up in the air. The best way to do so is by taking a tour in a luxury seaplane. Your starting point will be the ocean and from there you'll fly over all Sydney's landmarks including the magnificent Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This adventure is a bit pricy, but we can guarantee that such an experience is worth every penny. You'll never forget the feeling of being 20,000 feet above the sea level surrounded by the sheer beauty of this metropolis.

Sailing the Sydney harbour is another glamorous way to see the city. We recommend that you go sailing at night, since the city lights accompanied by soothing music will create a fairytale atmosphere which will turn an ordinary cruise into the perfect romantic evening with your partner. You'll also have a chance to attend a gourmet dinner and taste the traditional Australian cuisine, as well as drink some of the finest wine and beer in entire Australia.
Finally, the Blue Mountains have so much to offer that it's almost impossible to imagine someone visiting Sydney and not coming to this rejuvenating place. Not only will you be able to enjoy amazing food, wines and spa treatments, but you can also rent a beautiful Tree House. This is a place where you'll truly get in touch with nature and listen to the birds singing from the moment you open your eyes. You'll experience something wild and absolutely glamorous at the same time. We guarantee that you'll never forget the stunning views of the Bowen's Creek Gorge and the Blue Mountains rainforest.
As you can see, living like a Rockefeller, at least during your stay in Sydney, can be super fun. This kind of travelling can be a bit pricey, but keep in mind that you deserve it. From time to time, it's very important that we pamper ourselves with a bit of glamour and melt away all the accumulated stress.
