Stay overnight at the zoo

This experience will make you feel as if you’re right in the heart of the African jungle. Spend the night in a glamping style tent at Taronga Zoo, where you’ll fall asleep to the sounds of roaring lions and wake up to elephants trumpeting. Not only do you get to stay close to the animal enclosures, but you’ll have incredible views of the city skyline.

Pamper yourself at a day spa

Spa treatment is the best kind of treatment if you just want to relax. Sometimes an hour or two isn’t enough. So why not go all our and spoil yourself with massages, facials and other spa-treatment packages for an entire day? The Day Spa By Chuan at the Langham Hotel is a great place to start. You’ll feel refreshed and energised.
