Staying in Sydney over the holiday period? While most of us will make a city escape, there’s still plenty happening about the streets of Sydney. Here is our list of the best things to see and do in December.
Moonlight Cinema See advance screenings, new releases and cult films on the lawns of the Belvedere Amphitheatre in Centennial Park. Enjoy the sunset, the bats, a picnic and a glass of wine, and the general splendour of an evening outdoors. Until 27 March 2016.
The Paddington Project Visit this entirely shoppable real estate concept, designed by local architects at CM Studio and filled with covetable furniture from our friends at Living Edge. The Paddington terrace is brilliantly light and relaxed, and takes its inspiration and style cues from London born, Frankfurt based furniture outfit e15. The house, and its accessories are all for sale. Until 6 December 2015.
Secret Beaches Sydney is a city of breathtaking beaches, and there is truly so much more than just Bondi and Bronte to see and swim at. Discover harbour coves like Redleaf, Parsley Bay and Lady Martins – or head north to Store Beach near Manly, or further up the peninsula to Bilgola and Palm Beach.
Cornersmith Nights Make a trip out to Marrickville to experience one of Sydney’s most popular sustainably centred cafes by night. Former head chef of Surry Hills’ Berta, who has worked in the kitchens of Bistro Moncur, Uchi Lounge and Billy Kwong, O Tama Carey will be cooking throughout December. Carey will be serving a seasonal but casual four course menu, along with a selection of beers, wines and spirits. Until 19 December 2015.
Grayson Perry at the MCA Grayson Perry – My Pretty Little Art Career will be the first major survey of the artist’s work ever shown in the Southern hemisphere. Perry is one of the best known British artists of his generation, acclaimed for his ceramics, sculptures, drawings, prints and tapestries. With a keen eye for detail and a love of the popular and vernacular, Perry infuses his artworks with a sly humour and reflection on society past and present. From 10 December 2015.
