Qantas First Class Lounge, Sydney

Qantas’ luxury lounge in many ways reflects Australia’s great outdoors. The lounge prominently features a vertical garden that includes 8,400 plants. Once you’re soothed by the garden, you can choose from a variety of activities including free treatments at a Payot Paris day spa.

There’s a 48-seat, open-kitchen restaurant, and chair-side waiter service throughout the lounge, if you can’t be bothered to move. Entertainment areas include plasma screens and Sony Playstation entertainment systems.

If you need to freshen up or work, there are marble-lined shower suites, 11 computer work stations, video conferencing facilities, and power and data points throughout the lounge.
