We have done dozens of escape rooms, so saw the five star rating and thought we would try the ex Libra’s room. At $156 for three people, it was the most expensive room we have done, but unfortunately not the best. We felt the room...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
