We’re in the thick of the chilly season now, but that won’t stop us from seeking out all kinds fun around the city. Head to wintery festivals to find the best outdoor ice skating spots, or celebrate Indigenous Australian women this NAIDOC Week with live music and workshops around Sydney. If you need a small reprieve from the cold, there’s at least 101 fun things to do indoors in Sydney and pubs with fireplaces that’ll warm your tired bones.
Sydney has a few major running festivals every year, with full marathons and more managable 5k and 10k stretches around the city. Some are more suited to competitive types and others are all about the finish-line party.
