The popular Rosé All Day festival is back and promises days dedicated to everyone’s favourite pink drink in all its glory, including still, sparkling, spritz and of course frosé. Your ticket will include one Rosé (still or sparkling), one Frosé and one Rosé Spritz and can all be enjoyed over the Sydney Harbour backdrop and live music to tune you in.

Sydney Architecture Festival
Sydney is bursting with history and iconic architecture and design, all of which are highlighted and explored over four days of talks, tours and workshops at the Sydney Architecture Festival. This year will focus on preserving Australia’s beloved monuments and for the 12th edition of the festival, the Sydney Opera House will be the fitting festival hub.
The Festival will begin with the Australian International Architecture Symposium – a full-day event at the Art Gallery of NSW where the country’s leading practitioners will discuss contemporary Australian design and their developing projects. Other highlights include a panel discussion exploring the history of the Opera House for its 45th anniversary, a talk on ethics and economic growth, as well as a hands-on design and architecture workshop.
