 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.

Bare Island

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:

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.

Winter Magic Festival Blue Mountains

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.
