I know October probably isn’t the first month of the year you would think of to come visit Sydney. BUT! it shoudl be! October really is one of the best months of the year. Spring is just kicking into high gear, and with it- the party season. People are just creeping out from under the blanket of winter gloom and emerge straight onto a picnic blanket with a glass of bubbly already in hand. The Aussies love nothing more than a good outdoor reason to celebrate. October provides an overwhelming number of these occasions.
The first weekend of October is always a public holiday/long weekend which features music festivals, normally the Spring Horse Racing Carnival, The Latin Festival in Darling Harbour, and the HUGELY popular Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Month. Good Food Month runs for the entire month. Night noodle markets in Hyde park which feature the showcase photo competition of Art and about. Art and About sponsors amazing installations all over town. Don’t miss, fireworks, Samba, Horse racing, picnics at the beach, Cooking classes, Film Festivals, Feature Cocktails, markets, lectures, tours, and of course the unbelievable tasting menus at some of Sydneys top eateries.
October is Trully one of the most Glorious Months on the Sydney Calendar.
