Hey, guys, want to know what's happening in Sydney this long weekend? It's time to pull out the diaries Sydney folk, cause we've put together a jam-packed itinerary brimming with colourful markets, live music, and foodie pop-ups! And no work 'till Tuesday! Woohoo!
Cabin Fever at The Oaks
Just in time for winter (don't say there are no things to do in Sydney when it's cold), The Oaks is hosting an Aspen-style pop-up ski lodge replete with warming cheese and truffle toasties (Truffle! Toasties!), soothing winter drinks, and crackling open fires. Ski bunnies, represent. And tonight is just the start of three month's of Cabin Fever at The Oakes—brilliant!
Sydney Film Festival
One for the film buffs, Sydney Film Festival has officially kicked off, showcasing the best in Australian and international cinema. In its 61st year, the line up is absolutely epic, spanning 12-days of feature films, documentaries, short films, and animations. Head here for our top picks from the festival.
The Finders Keepers Market
The Finders Keepers market is set to transform Australian Technology Park for a huge two-day indie festival of all things art and design. Featuring hundreds of boutique stalls (stacked with fashion, accessories, homewares, and art), food trucks and live music, you're sure to pick up a unique gem or three. We'd recommend taking a full wallet.
Deep Sea Arcade Free Gig
Sydney five-piece, Deep Sea Arcade, have announced a free gig at Newtown Hotel to help those on the hunt for things to do in Sydney this long weekend. You can expect a stellar performance from the indie rockers, including a couple of new tunes. Plus, be sure to check out our interview with frontman Nicholas McKenzie here.
Antique Market Double Bay
Ok, it's time for a bit of retail therapy. And we've found just the thing! This new monthly market in Double Bay is a treasure trove of antique goodies, with stalls selling everything from old-fashioned furniture to stunning vintage jewellery and homewares. A must on your hit list this long weekend!
Ambush Gallery Take Over Bungalow 8
Still looking for awesome things to do in Sydney this weekend? One of Sydney's favourite waterfront venues, Bungalow 8, is teaming up with the renowned Ambush Gallery to host its Urban Art Workshop. The all-day bash will feature some of Australia's most-respected artists, alongside workshops and live DJs. Cocktails and creativity, we like the sound of that!
Colour3 Vivid Pop-Up at Martin Place
This is your last chance to catch Colour3 in all Vivid's colourful glory before the clock strikes midnight! Get to Martin Place for its maze of illuminated water tanks, delectable street food (including Gelato Messina!), and beverages from Bondi's Panama House—it's the perfect way to let loose this long weekend!
