It’s finally that time of year when it’s acceptable to break out the tinsel, stuff yourself silly on gingerbread, and down a few too many glasses of champagne, despite the fact that none of us can believe it. We’re prepared for December, which has arrived.
With a foodie extravaganza taking over the CBD and Parramatta for some insane and unforgettable activations to which you can still get tickets, as well as a music festival and festive markets going on, Sydney is lighting up and filled with action this weekend in true silly season style. You name it, Sydney this weekend has it.
Okay, are you ready to go? Here are the top weekend activities in Sydney.
Take on an oyster tour in Sydney
Travel 45 minutes north of Sydney’s central business district for a visit of an oyster farm on the Hawkesbury River in Mooney Mooney. Our money is on Sydney Oyster Tour’s three-hour This is The Life Tour ($160pp), even if the 90-minute Oyster Farm Tour is a well-liked option. A boat journey to the oyster farm lease, a shellar door pearl farming experience, and lunch are all included.
Young Henrys offers regional craft beer
If you wonder how to get through your holiday if you are in Sydney keep on reading.
Spending a leisurely afternoon drinking, chatting, and purchasing craft beer is one of the greatest ways to experience Sydney, and the ideal spot to do so is at Young Henrys in Newtown.
Seven days a week, their cozy tasting bar is open, but you’ll need to arrive early to obtain a seat because they don’t accept reservations. Why aren’t food trucks running? You’re in excellent hands because the delicious Cairo Takeaway is just a short distance away.
We advise you to check out the sexiest Sydney brothels nearby if you want to continue your enjoyment and have a few more drinks.
Spend the night at Taronga’s Wildlife Retreat
When you can reserve a night at the beautifully renovated Wildlife Retreat at Taronga, why go to Taronga Zoo with the crowds?
Depending on the retreat option you select, you’ll get a three-course lunch, breakfast, free admission to the zoo, and private tours of The Sanctuary, a special Australian animal habitat for Wildlife Retreat visitors.
Those who have reserved a Family Escape Retreat will also benefit from a guided tour of the zoo after hours.
Swim or take pictures at Bondi Icebergs
For $9, you may enter Bondi Icebergs, one of the most Instagrammed locations in the nation. Set your filter to Clarendon and dress attractively but clumsily. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon by the poolside before heading upstairs for either a quick snack at the café or a formal dinner at Icebergs Dining Room. Reserving in advance is important.
At Western Sydney Parklands, you can stay and play
Head to Western Sydney Parklands, which has recently begun its ‘Stay and Play’ summer tourism promotion, to avoid the summertime throngs along the shore.
You may easily discover a place to stay online if you want to be close to some of the area’s most popular attractions, including Sydney Zoo, Sydney Motorsport Park, Sydney Dragway, Raging Waters Sydney, Calmsley Hill City Farm, and Tree Tops.
