The Shangri-La is no stranger to high tea. Whether it's a weekly sky-high affair or an OTT festive high tea with a gingerbread carousel, the luxurious Sydney hotel is a fan of impressive daytime spreads. Come July, it's pulling out all the stops for the most magical iteration yet with the Wizardry High Tea Buffet.

The Shangri-La Grand Ballroom will be fitted out to resemble a wizard's lair with gilded thrones, candelabras, magical spell books, potion jars, broomsticks and wands scattered throughout to create an immersive space for the high tea.

Both the sweet and savoury treats on offer will also be themed. Expect raspberry and chocolate eclairs; chocolate cups with blueberry mousse; and sandwiches filled with turkey and brie, broccolini and pesto, or ham and Swiss cheese — all decked out to look straight out of an enchanted tavern.

The spellbinding tea is on offer on the first three weekends in July, with two seating times available on each of the applicable days — 11am–1pm and 2.30–4.30pm. Tickets are $79 or $59 for kids aged 4–11.

If you want to really take the experience up a notch, you can book the Magical Wizardry Escape which bundles together a stay at the Shangri-La Sydney with two tickets for the high tea.
