Things to do in Sydney in June
Manly Scenic Fun Run – Sunday, 3rd June 2018
Manly is a scenic place to be, one of Sydney’s most beautiful places to be, so if you must dash, why not dash where there is much to see along the way.
Things to do on the Northern Beaches
Sydney Film Festival – Wednesday, 7th June to Saturday, 17th June

Queen’s Birthday – June Long Weekend
One of the nice things about the start of winter is we get a long weekend to get used to the idea:
The long weekend also marks the official start of the Ski Season. The link below includes a video of what it is like to ski in this country (it’s pretty good but don’t tell anybody 🙂 ):
Sydney Craft Beer and Cider Fair – 24th June
The Sydney Craft Beer & Cider Fair is really for those who take their drink very seriously. The fair will give you the chance to taste quality brew and talk to the people who produce it. You get four hours to fully appreciate the finest in the land. As all beer lovers know, “the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.” 🙂
Professional Bull Riders – Qudos Bank Arena – Saturday, June 9th – Sunday, 10th June
This no rodeo, this is three hours of snorting, charging, bucking bulls. Cowboys against the Bulls. A contest between man and beast. Pain for gain. I can see this could be hard to watch. Gripping yet scary. The spectacle is enhanced with pyrotechnics, lasers and televised replays. Not everyone’s cup of tea perhaps but it certainly won’t be dull.
Goat Island Heritage Tour
Tours are scheduled to run periodically from 10.20am to 12.50pm. Follow the link below for more details:
True Grit Military Inspired Obstacle Challenge – Hawkesbury – Sunday, 11th June to Monday, 12th June
True Grit is an obstacle course built by the Australian Special Forces. Still reading? You’re brave! Be quick, there may be a few brave souls ahead of you.
The Bare Island was the site of a state of the art military defence complex when it was built in the late 1800s. Sydney was a very different place back then. The fledgling European population believed that Sydney needed to be able to defend herself from potential foe. Follow the link below to find out more including a map:
Bare Island (Ranked No. 88)
Ice Rink at Bondi
With the onset of a little winter chill you’ll be able to go ice skating on the world famous Bondi Beach. Whale spotting on skates perhaps? That’s just one of the pluses of having an ice rink by the sea.
Winter Magic Festival – Katoomba – June 2019
Sadly there will be no Winter Magic in Katoomba this year but next it will back next year no doubt bigger, better and more magical than ever.
There is one thing to know about Katoomba in June, it isn’t warm so rug up. Katoomba’s Winter Festival magically banishes traffic from its main street and replaces it with an army of artists, musicians, dancers, drummers and choirs. The Winter Magic Grand Parade is worth seeing and there will be plenty of market stalls and people to look at, as everybody is encouraged to dress in costume. Make it a warm one.
Australia vs Ireland – International Rugby – June
Can the Wallabies overcome the skillful Irish? One for the lovers of Rugby and a hard fought contest.
Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair – Wednesday, 20th June to Sunday, 24th June
The Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair will have you in stitches! 🙂 The fair is tuned towards those with a thirst for knowledge along with seasoned creatives in search of new ideas and inspiration. If you can’t see yourself stamping, scrap booking, knitting, crocheting, card making, embroidering, sewing, quilting, or jewellery-making from here, then you’ll never make it anywhere. It’s up to you, at the Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair. 🙂
