In September of this year, less than a month ago, the QT Sydney hotel opened its doors within two of the city’s most iconic buildings; the historic Gowings department store and the heritage-listed State Theatre. While the facades are restored to their former glory, the insides of the hotel, designed by acclaimed designer Nic Graham, are created based on a mix of original features, curated digital art installations, eclectic artefacts and quirky design pieces, inspired by the retail and theatre history of the two buildings.
The hotel’s 200 guest rooms come in 12 different styles, where cohesion is allowed through the deep palette of reds, oranges, yellows and whites featured in all them. The rooms in the Gowings Building are bright and airy with eccentric touches and embellishments, matching the original timber floors from 1929. Underpinning the history of the State Theatre, the rooms you’ll find here feature Rothko-inspired carpets and rugs, finished off with playful touches like bowler hat lamps, unusual collectables and pops of colour.
Tough the design of the hotel makes for an experience all in itself; guests are encouraged to explore the treasures of Sydney by planning their city adventures using the hotel’s Concierge iPhone and iPad app. We think this makes for a hotel experience both fit for those Sydney locals wanting to spend a weekend in new, luxurious surroundings, as well as those visiting this glorious, Australian city.

Sydney’s annual festival of light, music and innovation is back from the 25th May – 11th June. The artist driven festival, in its fourth year will once again transform Sydney into a canvas of creativity and inspiration.
Vivid has become Sydney’s major winter festival with free and ticketed events at the Sydney Opera House, Museum of Contemporary Art, Circular Quay, the Rocks and now extending to the Walsh Bay precinct for the first time.
Thirteen new installations will form the Walsh Bay Light Walk, curated by Sydney Dance Company’s resident multimedia artist Peter Greg. Set to be an immersive cinematic experience, the walk takes visitors from pier 1 to 9 on a journey of creativity and innovation, offering interactive pathways flooded with luminous colours and astounding sculptures.
A fractured heart created by the Illuminart team and ARIA Award winning performer Gotye alone is something not to be missed. Combining dazzling animations with unique musical notes when played as a harp by the audience, the interactive instrument is said to be a highlight of the walk.
