If your wedding anniversary is coming up soon, or you just want to take that special someone on a romantic getaway, look no further than Sydney.

This bustling city is home to some of the most beautiful locations in Australia, and it's definitely worth a visit. Not only have we got your car rental in the Sydney airport covered, but we've also collected some fabulous ideas for things you can do while you're here.

Stay in style

Why not treat your significant other to a wonderful weekend in one of Sydney's fabulous five-star hotels, such as the Sir Stamford At Circular Quay? This and most other hotels in the area have luxury suites with stunning views of the city, so if you want to make your visit extra-special (and are willing to spend some extra money to do so), go ahead and book one.

Get some culture

How about a night at the opera? If your partner is a fan of the arts, you can't go past the Sydney Opera House. From ballet to orchestra performances, theatre to comedy, there's always something happening at this fantastic venue.

Grab a bite

You can't go wrong with a romantic meal, whether it's some high-quality cuisine at a classy joint such as Sydney's O restaurant (which offers 360 degree views of the city), or a quiet afternoon picnic-for-two in the gorgeous Royal Botanic Gardens.

Keep a lookout

Driving your loved one to a lookout spot and gazing over the city is also a lovely idea. We recommend North Head Lookout, which offers glorious views of Manly Cove and South Head. And it's absolutely free – perfect for those lovers on a budget!

These are just the tip of the iceberg. If you get a car hire in Sydney sorted before you set off, the whole city – and beyond – is at you and your sweetheart's disposal. So what are you waiting for?
