Entertainment Quarter in Sydney | Things To Do at EQ
Located at Moore Park on traditional Eora Nation land of the Gadigal People, Entertainment Quarter is a leisure, entertainment, dining and retail precinct that surrounds what’s now known as The Showring.
The Showring was originally Sydney Common and was selected in 1811 for people’s cows to have space to graze. Over the last two centuries, this area has transformed completely and is now home to cinemas, restaurants, bars and shops.
Directly opposite the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney Football Stadium (Allianz Stadium), Fox Studios, Hordern Pavillion and The Royal Hall of Industries, it’s difficult to be bored in a place like Entertainment Quarter.
