Celebrating the Creative City of Sydney
The festive season may have passed but Sydney is still aglow with festivities. Every January our city is taken over by the vibrant, magical, and in some cases, bizarre creations of Sydney Festival - from art installations, to musical endeavours, to interactive performances, and more.
Here are just 10 wonderful things in this year's edition of the city-wide celebration that you may treat yourself to.
Check out the big hair music performances at the Festival Village, covering a range of genres from cabaret, to Bollywood, and featuring the likes of contortionists. It'll be a different experience each time, and if you're game, step up and donate your scalp to art.
An annual Australia Day tradition in line with the close of Sydney Festival is the Ferrython. Watch and cheer as the ferries of the harbour make their way to Shark Island and back. Also, for the first time in history, for $120 you may purchase a spot upon one of these - complete with refreshments.
