Time Out says

Head to Sydney's most famous shore for arts, immersive experiences and family fun

Sydney's most iconic beach will transform into a veritable smorgasboard of arts, culture and plain old good times with the coming of spring, for two weeks across September and October.

Bondi's winter celebrations, Bondi Feast and Bondi Winter Magic Festival, were billed originally to take place in July, but have been bumped to spring-time as a result of lockdown restrictions. Now that they're back, it's going to be quite a doozy. A giant ferris wheel, the Bondi Vista, will take over the grassy esplanade before the beach, allowing 360 degree views of Bondi's surrounds: think the big, wide blue sea eastwards, and skyscrapers and city lights and you face west. Locals will be used to the ferris wheel's familiar facade, but the newest kid on the block? A brand new roller-skating rink. 

There'll be live entertainment every night of the festival, ranging from comedy and theatre, to burlesque and circus performances. You can expect your favourite local business to get involved, and become transformed into temporary theatres for artists to put on a real show. 

Did you hear? Another favourite, Bondi's Sculpture by the Sea, is also making a comeback.
