It’s the first week of January and you’re back at work. After a fabulous Christmas and spectacular New Year, suddenly it’s all over and normal life resumes once again. So here are our top 5 ways to get you out and about in Sydney during January to shake those blues away…
1. Sydney Festival
There is so much going on with the Sydney Festival this month it’s hard to fit it all in, from family activities to music, dance and theatre across the CBD. Why not get a group of friends together and head down to the Domain, find a patch of grass, sit back and relax with a glass of wine and watch the vast array of entertainment.
Flickerfest is Sydney’s first beachside cinema where you can watch up-and-coming stars from under the stars. The event screens the best short films from Australia and the world in a unique, relaxed summer environment. Gourmet food and wine of the organic variety can be purchased from the Beachside Bar at the Pavilion.
3. Australia Day
With your cork hat on and boomerang in hand, head down to Darling Harbour and join the excitement of Australia Day 2010. This year there will be a harbour boat parade, as well as live music from Leo Sayer and Australian Idol winner Stan Walker, followed by an amazing display of fireworks lighting up the Harbour.
4. Moonlight Cinema & Open Air Cinema
Whether it be a romantic night out or a get together with your friends, book your tickets online for seats at the Centennial Park or Mrs Macquarie’s Chair outdoor cinemas. You can select from a range of old and new films with the breathtaking back-drop of the Opera House or Harbour Bridge… just don’t forget a warm jumper and insect repellent!
5. Sydney Fish Markets Seafood School
At number 5 in our list is the Sydney Fish Markets Seafood School in Pyrmont. At one of Sydney’s leading cooking schools you will be shown just how easy it is to cook and prepare seafood at home. You can impress your friends and family with your newfound skills learnt from one of the leading Australian expert chefs.
