While we love our spring beach days, and it may be warm enough to lose the jacket, it's not guaranteed bikini temperatures every weekend in November. Luckily, this month is packed with annual festivals like Newtown Festival, Sydney Open and the Festival of Dangerous Ideas to keep us occupied no matter the forecast. Plus, Sydney's best laneways are everpresent for exploring hidden streets, little shopping lanes and wonderful food and drink venues. 

Celebrating? Be sure to book a table at one of our recently crowned 50 best restaurants

There's nothing quite like a film under the stars in the beautiful surrounds at Belvedere Amphitheatre in Centennial Park. Settle in for a movie and as always, the Moonlight Cinema food truck and bar can supply you with comestibles, but you're welcome to BYO food and drinks, too.

The best harbour beaches in Sydney

It's sunny outside. You want to go to the beach. But the drive to Bondi is looking like absolute hell. And besides, you haven't shown one of our many harbour beaches much appreciation lately. Find the ones that are worth the trip.
