sydney’s fun in october

The Crave Sydney Festival is about to start. From October onwards, Sydney will have many events running including the City of Sydney Arts and About Festival, that celebrates all things art in this city. The Darling Harbour Fiesta is on from 2-5 October and indulges in the spirit and vibe of Latin America.

How about we go island hopping and jump across all those islands in Sydney Harbour? Tickets start from $48.50 for adults and half price with a codeword. Not a bad way to experience the natural beauty of our pristine harbour. You will need to buy tickets from Ticketmaster on the Sydney Harbour Island Hopping website.

To finish off the festival is the 7 Bridges Walk and the Breakfast on the Bridge. Not a bad way to experience the wonderful Sydney weather and lifestyle!

If you had thought that was not enough, headlining the Crave Sydney Festival is the Sydney International Food Festival (formerly the Good Food Month) begins on Thursday, and runs throughout October.

A selection of what will be on offer next month include:


Brunch is available on weekends for $25 at 8 locations including the wonderful Sumac (Morrocan) in Darling Harbour, which surprisingly offers the same food as Kazbah in Balmain.

High Tea

There’s high tea available for $45 at 11 different locations, with food ranging from the exotic finger food to the traditional cakes and scones at QVB.

Night Noodle Markets

These Asian inspired hawker noodle markets will be back in Hyde Park on October 12-16 (Mon-Fri) and October 19-23 (Mon-Fri) from 5:00pm-9:30pm.

Desserts (Sugar Hit)

Everybody remembers the delight of sitting in a lavish restaurant, sipping on dessert wine and sampling an assortment of scrumptuous desserts. It’s back this year for $20 at 20 different locations across the City.

$10 Korean Food

South Korean tourism officials have also jumped onto the bandwagon amd will provide $10 dishes at selected Korean restaurants across the City. Check out their website.

Laneways by George

Sydney’s laneways will be transformed into a myriad of different colours, symbols and patterns akin to those in our southern neighbour. 8 of the city’s lanes have been changed with installations that aim to challenge our perceptions of the future. Laneways by George starts in October and runs into January 2010.
