It’s official. Summer is here, so if you’re lucky enough to be a Sydneysider, you’ll want to know all about the best things to do with all your well-deserved time off.

Here’s five you just have to round up your mates and get out to…

1. Club Swizzle at the Sydney Opera House.

Part bar, part show, all chaos.

This January, the creators of La Soiree will present a new show to Sydney’s picturesque Opera House; Club Swizzle. Club Swizzle could be described as the ‘unhinged sister’ show to La Soiree, featuring a cast of eccentric singers, dancers, acrobats, as well as a live band that will take over a specially built bar in the Studio. You’ll enjoy an array of spectacular shows including: ‘Meow Meow’, ‘The Swizzle Boys’ and ‘Mikey and the Nightcaps’.

Running from January 9 to February 15, head to the Sydney Opera House website for more details and to secure your tickets.




2. Sydney Festival 2015

From art exhibitions to outdoor yoga, the Sydney Festival offers something fun and festive for the whole family. 

Running from January 8-26, head to The Sydney Festival website to find out more.



3. Bondi to Bronte walk

Looking to get a proper serving of the sights? There’s no walk more picturesque than that of Bondi to Bronte. Be sure to pop into one of the local cafes and reward yourself for afterwards.


4. Crab racing at Watson’s Bay Hotel


Place your bets! Each Sunday the Watson’s Bay Hotel hosts crab racing on the beach. If your little crustacean is the fastest critter of the bunch you’ll score a Beach Club gift voucher. Woo hoo!

5. Take a wander through Manly’s Artisan markets

If you’re into arts and crafts it’s well worth heading down to Manly to experience the creativity of Stella Maris College. Enjoy local bands, delicious food and brilliant coffee and sort out your Christmas shopping.


The markets will run every Saturday from 10am to 4pm, November 29th till December 20th. Entry is free. Find out more at the Manly Artisan Markets Facebook page.
