Australia's biggest city truly comes alive during springtime (and remember, those of your in the northern hemisphere, that's your autumn!). From fantastic music festivals and extraordinary exhibitions to refreshing feasts and popular rooftop bars, you can indulge in the beauty of Sydney’s most amazing scenes, vibrant nightlife and appealing outdoor activities. Here, the spring runs from September to November and the days are warm and sunny with comfortable temperatures reaching 24 degrees Celsius and flora and fauna blossoming, which brings the people out to the streets where they celebrate their culture and enjoy the boundless energy of the electric city.
Probably Sydney's most colorful and famous festival is the Festival of the Winds, held each September at Bondi Park and Bondi Beach. It brings together the most creative Australian and international kite flyers, who showcase their inspiring creations which include various cartoon character kites, giant animals and kites in different unusual sizes and shapes. You will have an opportunity to participate in one of the festival’s brilliant kite making workshops, fly your own kite or create your personal unique creation. There are also many entertaining things your young ones will go crazy about such as puppet shows, face painting and jumping castles. It’s a perfect way to spend a day at the beach with your loved ones.
Another spring festival that takes place throughout each September is one of the largest independent arts festivals in Australia - the Sydney Fringe Festival. It was officially launched in 2010, and each year presents over 300 productions in over 50 venues bringing numerous professional and amateur artists who show their talents in comedy and theatre performances. What’s most interesting about it is that anyone can apply and put on their show at their own cost. This year, new venues will be revived and people will gather to celebrate the city’s nightlife. So, if you are looking for some real fun, come and see some of the top comedy and theatre performances and experience the best cultural offering of the city.
What’s more satisfying than enjoying a delicious meal outside on the sandy, sun-kissed beach area? After taking just a thirty-minute ferry ride from the bustling city of Sydney, you will come across a small paradise, a fantastic beachside suburb called Manly. You can either enjoy in the sounds of jazz, blues and funk on the annual Manly Jazz festival, or you can try a broad selection of various international cuisines in some of its most exquisite dining spots which cater to happy hour regulars. If you have a sweet tooth, visit some of Manly’s most famous foodies such as Chica Bonita, which offers Mexican street food, or experience a Japanese fusion at Sunset Sabi.
If you're a beer lover, you mustn’t miss on Sydney’s biggest celebration of craft beer. Here, you can sample handpicked craft beers and meet domestic and international brewers. It lasts eight days and it hosts more than 100 events on 75 different venues and the fun goes well beyond tastings. From axe-throwing competitions and hangover-curing breakfasts to beer and chocolate dessert pairing and sausage-making classes, there is something to suit everyone’s taste. This year, it is even bigger, better and more versatile and is gradually becoming the most festive time of the year, especially for beer fans.
Whether you are craving for some cultural manifestation or you are simply looking for some fun, Sydney offers an endless array of momentous events that will make the spring even more beautiful and more alive.
