What’s On

Where Sydney - - Contents -

Kick back and en­joy fun, re­laxed sum­mer nights as Aus­tralia’s favourite open-air cin­ema, Moon­light Cin­ema, re­turns. Watch your favourite block­buster films, as well as ad­vanced screen­ings and new re­leases, amid the pic­turesque sur­rounds of Cen­ten­nial Park. In­dulge in the hot food, drinks and snacks avail­able or pack your own rug and pic­nic! If you ar­rive early, you can grab a drink and chill with your friends be­fore the sun goes down. Opt­ing for a Gold Grass ses­sion and book­ing a bean bed can turn the night into a lux­ury ex­pe­ri­ence, ei­ther for your­self or that spe­cial some­one.

From 1 De­cem­ber, Belvedere Am­phithe­atre, Cen­ten­nial Park, Padding­ton. moon­light.com.au Get ready be­cause Santa Claus is com­ing to town, bring­ing with him a three-week Christ­mas ex­trav­a­ganza you’ll never for­get. Aus­tralia’s big­gest Christ­mas fes­ti­val, which at­tracted 50,000 peo­ple last year, brings the North Pole to Syd­ney, with count­less rides, live en­ter­tain­ment, work­shops and car­ol­ing build­ing a fes­tive at­mos­phere. High­lights in­clude a mas­sive por­ta­ble ice skat­ing rink— im­ported from Italy and bring­ing a Euro­pean win­tery Christ­mas to scorch­ing Syd­ney—and Aus­tralia’s only dou­ble decker carousel. Take a selfie with cos­tumed Christ­mas char­ac­ters, try a rein­deer rid­ing train­ing ses­sion, or set­tle in for story time with Mrs Claus.
