March events in Sydney

Farewell those balmy summer afternoons and bring on a massive roster of comedy, music and multicultural festivals

Summer’s children may be weeping in the slightly cooler autumn breeze, but wise Sydneysiders know there’s no reason to despair the coming of March. While the days are growing shorter, the list of outstanding activities this month is growing ever longer. Party at Parramasala, Africultures Festival and the Latin American Festival, and talk gender equality and diversity at All About Women.

Also, our favourite secret beaches will be less packed – creating the illusion that they actually are secret – and you’ll be able to nab a table at the best waterfront bars as the tourist hordes abate.

Best pubs in Surry Hills

They pack the pubs tightly inside the 2010 postcode. You've got craft beer temples with gleaming banks of taps ready to cater to even the most esoteric thirst; there are tried and tested stalwarts for a cold beer and a Swans game; or you can upgrade your dinner in high-end dining rooms.
