InterContinental Sydney

An institution with world-class vistas
Location is key and history is rich at the iconic InterContinental Sydney. A five-minute walk from Circular Quay’s transport hub, a treasure trove of Sydney stories, culture and views awaits.

Set in the city’s original treasury building established in 1851, the InterContinental is steeped in history — it was once the site of Sydney’s first vineyard, after all. From a meal at The Treasury surrounded by historic sandstone arcades to evening drinks in rooftop bar Aster, your stay at InterContinental Sydney will leave you with unique memories and plenty of stories to bring home.
