[ADVERT]The free hugs parade is alive, and if you love street music the very best is available here. A large gathering usually comes around in the middle of a sunny day, otherwise on a Thursday night right outside Westfield Sydney under the bridge connecting both ends. Some of the funky bands come all the way from America to perform. When you see a large circle around some musical performances next time round, you need to check it out. Pitt Street Mall is also home to some dress ups for the kids occasionally as well. Think Sunday afternoons for the latter.
With the newest addition, Darling Quarter, this area has never been a cooler place to hang out. Great for family picnics with an abundance of swings for the kids. The table tennis play area is also a hit. Otherwise, Darling Harbour is home to many free events including fireworks, sporting and other musical events. Free salsa lessons are occasionally available on Sunday nights at Hard Rock Cafe.
Home to free street theatre, and is the spotlight of the annual Vivid Sydney festival. The best vantage points along Sydney Harbour is at this spot. Think the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge with water views.
Fantastic gardens and an abundance of greenery. Great for picnics, running and walking. Excellent views of Sydney Harbour are enjoyed. A great walking trail from here to Woolloomooloo makes way for an enjoyable, lengthy walk.
Plenty of action on this end of the city. The annual Art and About event is held here with some free paintings and other artistic displays to enjoy. You can also play chess and enjoy the waterfall area.
