Come November, we’re on the verge of abandoning our jackets and jumping headfirst into Sydney’s blistering days and balmy nights. But we’re not quite there yet. While we’re keen for an occasional splash at Sydney’s best beaches, we’re also partial to a hideout in the city’s cool underground bars or a sunny afternoon in one of Sydney's best beer gardens.

When you're not whiling away the hours with a glass in hand, there's plenty of culture to catch this November, including film fests aplenty, theatre galore, and galleries bursting with incredible masterworks. So why not put a spring in your synapses as Sydney strides into summer with a trip to one of these superb cultural events.

RECOMMENDED: Sydney's best waterfront bars.

  • Things to do
  • Walks and tours

This love affair with the crushed sapphire liquid expanse of the Harbour dates back many, many thousands of years to when the Gadigal people of central Sydney paddled their canoes around the bays. Today, those journeys of discovery are provided by Sydney Ferries when you clamber aboard one of the picture-postcard green-and-yellow ferries that still scoot across the harbour as they have for the past century-and-a-half.
