August is here, bringing us some brilliant winter sunshine, wattle explosions and a whole plethora of excellent cultural, arty and foody times that are guaranteed to warm up even the most wintery of hearts. This last month of the cold season will be delivering the goods, with plentiful theatre shows, art exhibitions, live music performances and delightfully delicious new restaurants and bars popping up across all four corners of the Emerald City. 

If you want a more fresh-air kind of escape, check out the best winter getaways you can take from Sydney, or head to the snow before spring makes it impossible. if you want to really turn that winter level up to maximum, check out our list of the best places to go ice skating in Sydney, then warm up at one of these epic pubs and bars with fireplaces.

Below, we have put together a list of absolutely everything happening in our city this month, making sure that whether you're heading out or staying in, we have you covered.
