    The location is amazing. Above Circular Quay and a minutes walk from the Sydney Opera House forecourt, you could not be better situated. Lots of bars and restaurants and close to everything. The club itself is a classic old building and all of the charm...More

    Stayed at the RACA over the weekend with some friends for a girl's weekend and it was great. The place is a little tired now, and could do with an upgrade in so many areas, but I guess money is a problem here. Food and...More

    Stayed here for the night for work. Rooms are smaller than a normal hotel room. Very old world with decor, and does need to be updated compared to other RA Clubs, but the location is great. Heart of Circular Quay, walking distance to everything. On...More

    The only one of Sydney's old clubs which remains more or less intact - though the decision to run the Cahill Expressway right past it was a disappointing bit of urban planning. The 1927 building and its interior is delightful and fascinating with lots of...More

    You step back in time quaffing a gin and tonic in The Victoria Room. Vaulted ceiling, gorgeous decoration and a glittering chandelier. Have breakfast, lunch or dinner in the dining room because the food is delicious. Can you beat the address? Better still, why not...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,
    reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
