With the end of the long weekend looming, it’s just about time to get back into the grind. We know, we’re not keen either. Never fear though, we’ve rounded up a bunch of fab things to keep you motivated through those long, long work days. Who said you could only have fun on the weekend?
Go on, take a cheeky scroll, here are five awesome things to do in Sydney this week.
World Meat Free Week
We’re all about doing our bit for the environment and if going meat free for one week saves our big blue planet, we’re more than happy to do our little part. Join people around the world this Monday and participate in the meat free movement. Not only will you be helping the planet but think about all the delicious vegetarian burgers you’ve been meaning to try in Sydney. Rumour has it, eating meat for a week is the equivalent calories of 41 chocolate cookies (think about all the extra Tim Tams you now have the excuse to consume). If you want to learn more about the movement or need some recipe ideas, head over here.
When: Monday 11 June – Sunday 17 June
