What’s Open In Sydney On The Labour Day Public Holiday 2023

By Sunaina Salagame

Labour Day (AKA the October long weekend) on Monday 2 October is just around the corner, so we're looking at yet another luxuriously long weekend in Sydney to let our hair down and reset before the busy pre-Christmas period really kicks off.

Lucky for us, there are heaps of venues keeping their doors wide open on the public holiday, from elevated Italian eateries to old-school yum cha, beachside faves and late-night dive bars.

Here's what's open this Labour Day public holiday in Sydney.
