Immerse yourself in a couple of Sydney’s most colourful things now, and throughout the rest of the year.
Doodle Club is a new event put on by Studio 107 in Redfern. It’s great if you enjoy a little scribble, a few friends and a side of dumplings. Just BYO your materials pull up a seat and let your imagination run wild. It’s a great way to get out of the house, and there are no specifications on drawing ability. This club is suited to circle drawers, and casual Picassos.
Adman: Warhol before pop
Best way to get your culture fix? The Art Gallery of NSW. With Matt Moran’s stunning restaurant, The Chiswick, and all the art you could ever poke a stick at. What more could you want? Currently showing Adman, Warhol before pop and exhibit that focuses on the fascinating life of Andy Warhol.
Yoga on the Farm
Interested in converted spaces, vegetables, and sun salutations? Then Yoga on the Farm is for you. Soon to be popping up across Sydney, Pocket City Farm’s first addition, Camperdown Commons is a great little space in the Inner West. Yoga currently runs on weekends, but is a nice way to get rid of your hangover, with delicious meal options at the Acre Eatery for brunch.
Do you love eating chocolate? Do you think you could eat some delicious Lindt chocolate whilst learning about the origins of cacao? Then Sweet Addiction at the Royal Botanical Gardens is for you.
Groove therapy is a dance class with a twist, no pun intended! It’s a welcoming, fundamentally hip hop class that encourages dancers to embrace their inner kwirks. Held weekly, this little class is a great alternative to a run, that is a massive laugh. As quoted by the creators, Groove Therapy is a great way to “learn how to groove on the d-floor”. What more do you want?
If your looking to sing your lungs out on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge –and I mean who isnt- then grab a ticket to Karaoke Climb. Although being more pricey than other activities in Sydney, it is also the most entertaining way to see the city. Head to Bridge Climb and maybe book yourself into an afternoon of singing Madonna 134 metres above Sydney.
Moore Park Markets
Moore Park Markets are a great way to get your weekly groceries, and get outside! Going to the markets in Sydney, almost seems taboo, but it should be far from it. With numerous fruit and vegetable stalls, fresh breads and chutneys this is exactly where you want to be on Saturday. Grab a basket, meet the growers and learn a little bit about your food and where it comes from. Also make sure to nab some of the free samples lying around, delicious!
This well kept secret is a little sellout in the heart of Glebe. With great tunes, and a relaxed outdoor space, Sappho is an awesome place to go for a different side of Sydney. They also house many other funky events during the week, check their Facebook page to see whats on.
The Ballet is always an enjoyable activity. Made even better in Sydney, bt the fact that you enjoy this show inside one of Australia’s most iconic landmarks, The Opera House. Drop into the Opera bar before the show, and gaze at the Harbour Bridge, whilst sipping on some bubbles. The upcoming Nutcracker ballet, is recognized as a masterpiece.
