It’s the last month of winter and Sydney can still feel cold in August. The biggest events include the city’s most popular fun run, City2Surf, which takes joggers from College Street to Bondi, there’s SMASH – the anime and manga festival, Sydney Science Festival and the retro Fifties Fair. Plus, it’s a great time to hibernate in Sydney’s hybrid bookshop-cafés.
