It's no secret that Sydney shines during the summer. But that's not to say that the colder months aren't also packed with good times in the Harbour City. May is chock-full of festivals, shows, exhibitions, pop-ups, markets, parties and other fun happenings including a celebration of cocktails all month long.

Don't forget to treat your mum to a day she'll remember on Mother's Day, May 9. We've put together a bunch of ways that you can spoil her rotten, from a swanky high tea, to a pampering at a spa, or even just a beautiful bunch of blooms from one of Sydney's finest florists.

Get your culture fix with our pick of the very best theatre and art to see this month.

'Tis the season to carb load
