What? Summer? It feels like only yesterday we were ringing in December 1st and planning our inflatable-filled attack on Summer. And then the rain started. And continued. And continued to continue. 

So when the sun actually decides to come out, or whether that’s not an issue either way, here are 20 things you simply must do before the end of summer. That’s not long, people. Now go! 

  1. Actually get around to visiting the pop-up gin bar at MCA.
  2. Make the most of the sun (when it’s out) and hit up one of the best bars in Sydney to drink rose in the sun. It's a thing. 
  3. Stop liking photos of it on Insta and actually go for a swim at Icebergs pool. 
  4. Check out Corona Saturdays at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel.
  5. Do a road trip up to Newcastle and check out Surfest 2016.
  6. Grab one of the remaining tickets to Have You Heard Events’ Summer Land festival.
  7. Undo a tiny bit of the eating and drinking you’ve done this year, and check out BodyPass.
  8. Get your shellfish roll on at the Waterman’s Lobster Co. pop up in Bondi before it ends.
  9. Make the journey to Palm Beach for a visit to The Boathouse and a day by the waves.
  10. Say ‘bottoms up’ and indulge in one of the Aperol Spritz pop ups around Sydney.
  11. Get some damn culture in your life and check out Godspell Reimagined at the Sydney Opera House. 
  12. Escape the heat at SkyZone
  13. Make the most of dog-walking weather and stalk some canines at the best brunch spots in Sydney for patting other people’s dogs
  14. Escape the bikinis and bum bags and check out Mountain Sounds festival. 
  15. Make every single one of these cocktails
  16. Put on your eating pants and get eating at Lunar Feasts. Right now. 
  17. Get your ass into gear and check out one of these coastal walks
  18. Head to Coogee Pavilion for Sunday Sundown
  19. Do all of the eating, drinking and general awesomeness at March into Merivale 2016.
  20. Stop bloody googling everything and use The Urban List’s brand spankin’ new search. It will bring you to your damn knees with all its glory. Shameles plug, we know, but it’s epic.
