STELLAR

SYDNEY
Let the stars guide you
through the city
WORDS

GWEN LUSCOMBE

S

ydney’s a city that sparkles, and has
recently welcomed, for the first time in the
world, a hotel themed around the zodiac,
allowing guests to tailor-make a stay unique to
their personality.
The Ultimo Hotel is offering guests an experience
that’s aligned with their stars through daily
horoscopes delivered with your newspaper,
slippers in your matching zodiac sign, and a
custom travel guide inclusive of dining
recommendations, matched to your specific sign.
Located in the Chinatown district, The Ultimo
has been specially curated with astrologer
Damian Rocks, and includes quirky design
touches such as zodiac-themed 'Do Not
Disturb' signs, astrolo-tea specially selected to
match your zodiac sign and an astrology library.
Even if astrology isn’t your thing, the hotel is
conveniently located within walking distance of
and easy transport access to most of Sydney’s
happening hotspots including Darling Harbour,
the theatre district, Paddy’s Market, Central
railway station and some of the city's best (and
most affordable) dining options.
The Ultimo offers a variety of packages including
added extras, such as personalised star charts
and an hour-long face-to-face reading with
an astrologer.
Staying here could be the ideal way to create
a completely customised travel experience
that’s perfectly suited to what you’ll enjoy most.

STAYING IN
SYDNEY?
Why not explore the
city in a way that
suits your sign?

PISCES
(19 FEBRUARY TO 20 MARCH)
As one might assume, Pisces love
being near and in the water. They're
friendly people but also value their
alone time, which is why stand up
paddle boarding (SUP) is the perfect
activity. Let’s Go SUP lets you
experience what the locals do and
enjoy a relaxing day on the water
learning a new skill in one of
Sydney's best kept secret beaches,
La Perouse.

AQUARIUS
(20 JANUARY
TO 18 FEBRUARY)
Aquarians love to be around friends,
and are typically passionate about
meaningful causes, so enjoying a
Mediterranean-inspired meal at
Song Kitchen is the perfect mix of
having fun and doing good. Located
on Wentworth Avenue in the city,
all proceeds from Song Kitchen
fund essential services for the
YWCA, helping women at risk.

ARIES
(21 MARCH TO
19 APRIL)
Aries are active,
courageous and
adventurous, so
heading to The Rocks to climb
the Sydney Harbour Bridge is just the
ticket. Participants choose their time of
day (sunrise, daytime and sunset climbs)
and attend a safety session before their
exhilarating climb from the top arch of
the Sydney Harbour Bridge to its summit,
134m above the harbour. Enjoy the views
with plenty of commentary about the city
below and, who knows, you might even
witness a proposal on your climb – it’s
been known to happen.

TAURUS
(20 APRIL TO 20 MAY)
Taureans love to enjoy the finer
things in life and certainly don’t
mind indulging every so often,
which is exactly why a spa day
is the perfect idea. Book in at
The Day Spa at The Langham,
Sydney, and enjoy a day of
pampering with massages,
facials and treatments available.
And don’t miss their beautiful
indoor pool – a 20m indoor
celestial escape where spa guests
can swim under a star-dappled
sky ceiling, day or night.

GEMINI

(21 MAY TO 20 JUNE)
Geminis have a curious nature,
which can make them indecisive.
So there’s no better way to tick
every box than with a visit to the
(appropriately named) gaming and
entertainment precinct, The Star.
Here you’ll find a wide variety of
gaming, live sporting events,
shopping, casual and fine dining
options, bars and nightclubs and
even a performance theatre where
you can catch a show, comedian or
international musician.

VIRGO
(23 AUGUST TO 22 SEPTEMBER)
Analytical, organised, and hardworking,
Virgos love to take a break by escaping into
nature. There’s no better way to detach from
stress than enjoying the breathtaking views
from the Bondi to Coogee Walk. This 6km
coastline trail links up many of the area’s most
beautiful beaches and views! There’s also a
variety of cafes, landmarks and swimming
spots along the way.

LIBRA
(23 SEPTEMBER
TO 22 OCTOBER)
Librans are the peaceful type
who adore being outdoors.
As they’re known for being
romantic, a day of sailing on
Sydney Harbour might tick all
the boxes. Take a ferry ride to
Manly from Circular Quay and
spend the afternoon learning
to sail on one of the world’s
most spectacular harbours.

CANCER
(21 JUNE TO 22 JULY)
Cancers can be homebodies
and are very much focussed on
quality time. There’s no better
way to enjoy a night out with
your travelling companions
than to check out some of the
best local wine bars. Duck
into Darlinghurst and check
out local favourite Love, Tilly
Devine. Named after the area’s
most notorious female crime
boss in the 1920s, it can be
tricky to find (in true
bootlegging style) but well
worth the effort for a night of
great wine and nibbles.

(23 JULY TO 22 AUGUST)
Leos are social, warm-hearted
and typically love being
where the action is, so
venturing down to Darling
Harbour is an ideal spot
as it offers plenty of
options for fun. Here
you’ll find plenty of
shopping, dining,
amusements, harbour
cruises, quiet garden
areas, museums and
attractions all in one place.
There’s enough to keep you
entertained from morning
until late.

ON THE GROUND
SCORPIO
(23 OCTOBER
TO 21 NOVEMBER)
Full of excitement and passion, Scorpios
are always looking for the next exciting
thing. So why not get on a bicycle
and explore the city via bike paths?
There’ll be no time to feel bored
on a three-hour tour of the city
and its attractions. Enjoy Sydney’s
panoramic views, street art,
architecture and more as you ride
over the Sydney Harbour Bridge;
visit the museums, galleries,
parklands and Botanic Gardens and
stop off for a visit at Sydney Fish
Markets. There’re even children’s bikes
and tandem bikes for hire too!

CAPRICORN

SAGITTARIUS

(22 DECEMBER
TO 19 JANUARY)
The more conservative
Capricorn is disciplined,
practical, and a lover of quality
family time. That’s why going
on a whale watching
adventure is the perfect
solution, as a calm activity will
create once-in-a-lifetime
memories. May to November
is the best time to see
southern right, orca, minke,
and most of all, pods of
humpback whales as they
make their migration
across Sydney's coastline.

(22 NOVEMBER
TO 21 DECEMBER)
Philosophical and outdoorsy,
Sagittarians are big on travel
and freedom. Hence, a day trip
to the Blue Mountains, just an
hour outside Sydney, is ideal.
Famous for its rocky
escarpments and Three Sister
Rock Formation, there’re
plenty of hiking, mountain
biking and abseiling options.
Keen to just relax? You’ll find
plenty of quaint village
shopping and beautiful photo
opportunities too.
