Sydney gets busy in August. We clip on our thinking caps for more than 200 events at the Sydney Science Festival and the change-making talks at Antidote, all while we’re working on our cardio for the City2Surf. Add to that a smorgasbord of food festivals and a hefty line-up of musical theatre, and you’ve got yourself a pretty packed month.

If you need a moment to gather your thoughts in between the fun, visit one of our favourite spas in Sydney or do a media detox at these yoga retreats in NSW.
