Welcome to sensational Spring Sydney. Following on from the top things to do in August, Sydneysiders can get to rejoice in some top quality activities to see in the warmer months.
What shall I do with my dad this Father's Day?
If your dad gets excited about seeing the vintage cars every Australia Day at Macquarie Street, then you should take him to Eastern Creek for the 2012 Muscle Car Masters. He can take a step back in time and be immersed in some retro racing cars from the 50s to the 90s. The 18th Biennale is still going. Family Sunday's at Cockatoo Island would be another worthwhile option. Otherwise, the Strathfield Spring Festival is on. This festival makes way for a great day out for the family with rides, showbags, entertainment and a sports quarters. Racing cars will also delight. The Great Waiters Race is also on at Woolloomooloo Bay Wharf. This event is based on the traditional race from Paris at the beginning of the 20th century. The major prize for the winner of each gender will be rewarded with a return trip to Paris. If you work as a waiter in a restaurant, or you're a hospitality student, you are eligible to enter.
Is the Sydney Fringe Festival on again this year?
Absolutely. One of Sydney's most prominent alternative artistic events. The annual Sydney Fringe Festival covers visual arts, music, film, digital arts, comedy, theatre, musical theatre, circus/physical theatre, dance, cabaret, books, kids and family shows, poetry and special events to name.

Then the unique Manly to Manado Walk is something worthy of your consideration. This years iconic Spit Bridge to Manly bush walk is raising funds for over 50 mothers and babies in Indonesia. Otherwise if you wish to take part in the Sydney Running Festival, the Body and Soul bridge walk would be right up your alley.
I love the beach
