Just another day out with Thomas – Thirlmere – 14th September to 15th September 2019

Thomas and his steamy friends are on track for another big day out. You can expect to meet Thomas (Hi Thomas, how are you doing?..), take a “genuine steam train ride” in Donald the black engine and watch Henry shunt those ‘Troublesome Trucks’.

A really useful Outing

If you are, or know a small engine who is, into Thomas then you’ll probably find this event really useful. You’ll even meet the Fat Controller. But before we get too steamed up, you’ll have book your train ride beforehand and it costs. Tickets go on sale online. Beep, Beep, all aboard!

Sydney Fringe Festival is Everywhere – ends 30th September

The Sydney Fringe Festival used to be based in Newtown but this year the Fringe is everywhere (how can a fringe be everywhere?) At this rate of expansion there will be a Fringe War on the NSW/Victorian border.

Expect the new, the insightful, the not quite funny, the pretentious, the irreverent and amongst it all the occasional flash of brilliance.

Festival of the Winds – Bondi Park – 8th September

Festival of the Wind Sydney

Come down to Bondi for the most colourful of spring festivals. The skies will come alive with hundreds of kites of all shapes and sizes. International and Australian kite fliers will impress you with their skills and designs. It’s a great day out for all the family, with loads of entertainment right there on the ground as well as above your heads. Let’s hope the weather obliges and there’s enough wind to keep this festival off the ground! You don’t have to be an expert kite flyer, you can BYO, buy one or make your own.

Cabramatta Moon Festival – Cabramatta – Sunday, 8th September


A common reason people say they like to travel is to experience something a little different. One of Sydney’s largest cultural festivals, the Cabramatta Moon Festival, can do that for you without the airfare.

Lion Dancing

Every year across South East Asia, millions of people celebrate the Moon Festival, traditionally a time for families and a time to seek love and romance. There will be live performances, competitions, lion dancing, and a lantern parade, and of course, more delicious food, including moon cakes. So come with your loved ones, or sit under the stars and wish for a loved one, eat moon cakes, and of course, watch the fireworks finale.

Festival Fireworks

Among the many other reasons to attend are that the food will be awesome, the Vietface Fashion Pageant will be beautiful and it will all end with a ‘spectacular’ fireworks display. The perfect end to a perfect day.
