Sydney Festival

When: Month of January
Venue: All across Sydney

Arts festivals are unique in every city, but the next Sydney Festival promises to be an absolute scorcher!

With 150 events taking place, what a way to experience Sydney from beaches and picnics in the park by day and night.

Experience the best of International and Australian talent in large venues as well as intimate local shows,  thought-provoking talks and workshops, food journeys, concerts, adventures, and big thinking forums.

Get amongst the excitement! There are lots of free events to enjoy such as creative displays and exhibitions, the Indigenous Smoking Ceremony through the streets of Sydney on Jan 25 and Australia Day events including the Ferry races on Sydney Harbour on January 26.

It’s a quick trip on the Sydney Light Rail straight into Circular Quay from our Randwick accommodation.

TIP: Be sure to look out for the spectacular Te-Wheke-a-Muturangi, the giant octopus featured in Māori mythology. She will be taking up residence for the event in Watermans Cove, Barangaroo.

Head to the Sydney Festival website for more the most up-to-date info and full list of venues and events.
