8 great things to do in Sydney this February

It’s time to start making the most of summer because February marks the beginning-of-the-end of summer. So, we thought we’d put a quick guide together to help you enjoy these last few weeks of glorious weather.

There’s evenings at Taronga, wine festivals, ale festivals and more.

Twilight at Taronga

This could be our favourite event at Taronga Zoo – live bands, acts and shows, all against the backdrop of our stunning harbour. Plus, all the sights and sounds that the zoo has to offer. This year’s line-up includes Aloe Blacc, James Morrison, Mowtown Experience, Bjorn Again, and a Comedy Gala featuring Dave Hughes. Find out more here.

When: 1 Feb to 9 March

Where: Taronga Zoo

How much? Prices vary, more info found here


Moonlight cinema

 This is an old favourite but a good one. Watch new releases, sing-a-longs, and more at Centennial Park’s Moonlight cinema. And, if you fancy a nice glass of something with your movie, the experience is BYO booze.

When: Until 31 March

Where: Belvedere Amphitheatre, Centennial Park

How much? Adult tickets from $19

Peter Pan goes wrong

In Peter Pan Goes Wrong, you can expect petty rivalries, aching artistic pretentiousness, and Peter and Wendy getting frisky back-stage – all ‘accidentally’ exposed to you, the audience.
