Experience Sydney in true Swiftie style


As Taylor Swift wraps up the Australian leg of her renowned Era’s Tour, we take a look at Swiftie-themed trip down-under, drawing inspiration from the pop star’s visit to the vibrant harbour-side city.

Embark on your own Love Story at Sydney Zoo

Located in the heart of Western Sydney, Sydney Zoo is home to over 4,000 animals from around the world, including koalas, kangaroos, lions and exotic birds. Spend the day like Taylor, and boyfriend Travis Kelce, joining keeper talks, personalised animal encounters or meandering the various precincts from the Australian Boardwalk to the Primate Boulevard. 

‘Tis the damn season to cruise Sydney Harbour

Take advantage of the Sydney sunshine, and cruise the Bejeweled Sydney Harbour on a private charter with East Sail or Lifestyle Charters. For a truly superstar experience, splurge for the 120-foot, $3000/hour Quantum luxury superyacht Taylor was spotted on! Immerse yourself in the breath-taking beauty of one of the world’s most iconic harbours, gliding past famous landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Be Enchanted by the Surry Hills

After a day of exploration, spend the evening in an iconic neighbourhood trattoria Pellegrino 2000 and refuel like Taylor Swift and Sabrina Carpenter. This intimate Italian restaurant is renowned for its delectable dishes and cosy atmosphere including crowd favourites – brown butter and prawn ravioli, fritto misto and rigatoni all’Amatriciana. After dinner, further explore the creative neighbourhood of Surry Hills – where art-adorned streets and late-night cocktails await. 

Shake it off at the Accor Stadium

Keep the night going and return to the scene of the Eras Tour, and Shake It Off to a show or game at Accor Stadium in Sydney Olympic Park. The Accor Stadium stands as a premier destination for sports and entertainment enthusiasts alike. With its state-of-the-art facilities and vibrant atmosphere, it offers an unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages. Whether you’re a sports fanatic eager to witness thrilling matches or a music lover craving sensational concerts, Accor Stadium caters to diverse interests. Later this year, the stadium hosts the likes of global superstars PINK and Coldplay.

Live you Wildest Dreams at The Crown

Live your Wildest Dreams and immerse yourself in the pinnacle of opulence with a stay at the Crown Sydney, no matter whether you’re booking a Standard room or the Presidential Villa where Taylor Swift (and Travis Kelce) resided during their Sydney stay. Situated on the 88th floor, the 800sqm palatial masterpiece is exquisitely designed over 2 levels and boasts unparalleled views of Sydney.
