Festive like the rest of the world, the Sydney holiday season is also all about barbecues, beach adventures, bikinis and cold, cold beers.
The Sydney holiday season is usually swelteringly hot. And while our counterparts across the equator enjoy a white Christmas, we’ll be favouring bikinis over beanies. Bondi may be bustling but for a more relaxing beach experience, check out Nielsen Park. Here, you can go for a swim in the gorgeous beach (protected by shark nets), indulge in restaurants nearby or laze around till your heart’s content. And the best part is, being a bit more secluded; it’s nowhere near as hectic as Bondi.
of Contemporary Art
Through late November till March, Sydney’s best gallery – the Museum of Contemporary Art – will be exhibiting a selection of works from acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz. Titled “Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer’s Life 1990 – 2005”, the exhibition showcases much of her popular celebrity works featuring subjects such as Brad Pitt, Hilary Clinton and Mick Jagger. But what’s even more special are her personal works on display, documenting the life and death of her long-time lover Susan Sontag. Beautiful and compelling.
Gay Bash New Year’s Eve
New Years Eve in Sydney can be a really chilled or really crazy experience. If you’re like me, and prefer a crazy option, then there’s no better party to attend than Gay Bash NYE. One of my favourite clubnights in Sydney, this edition features the theme “Nude Year’s Eve” and is spread across four levels. Full of flamboyant punters and an electric atmosphere, the music is served up by some of Sydney’s finest DJs and acts. And let’s admit it, everyone likes to dress up ... even if it means wearing nothing!
