5 or 6 days around Christmas time. Where to go from Sydney?

My wife and I will get the chance to go away for 5 or 6 days without kids for the first time in a decade at the end of this year. It also happens to be my partners 40th birthday.
Where should we go, from Sydney?
I think it would be good to go abroad, because we like travelling to check out different cultures etc. but if you have a stunning Australian destination, share.
We've been to Europe and the USA and both are too far for a short trip. We've been to New Zealand, Thailand, Fiji and Singapore/Malaysia on our last few holidays abroad. And the last trip we had before we had kids was a week in Tassie. All were ace.
Our usual Christmas holidays are beach or bush camping or a holiday house, but I want to go up-market for this trip. We would rather something cultural/historic/foodie etc and tend to avoid beach destinations (well, this time - we go there for the kids). And relaxing beats adventure/hiking etc.
Budget is? $3000 perhaps. We can redeem frequent flyer points too, if that helps.
Thank-you mefi travel agent! (and to real travel agents, I understand I might require your services, but at this stage I'm looking for destination ideas I might not have considered).
