“Can we start the weekend all over again? I wasn’t ready.”

December begins this Friday and its’ bringing its signature festive spirit with it. Get ready for an incredible weekend infused with our ‘In The Know’ picks, connecting you with the best events in Sydney.

1.       The Bondi-Bronte Ocean Swim

Dive into an action-packed Sunday morning with the Bondi-Bronte Ocean Swim: a 2.2km journey through Australia’s world-renowned waters. Plunge from icon to icon: starting the swim on Bondi’s white-sands and finish up at Bronte SLSC, the world’s first Surf Life Saving Club.

1.       Moonlight Cinema

We’re welcoming a summer spent under the stars as Moonlight Cinema’s 2017/2018 season debuts on Friday 1 December with The Mountain Between Us starring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba.  The season continues until 1 April, with an incredible line-up including Paddington 2, Love Actually and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. There’s something for everybody!

2.       The Powerhouse Museum presents Learn & Play!

Learn & Play! TeamLab Future Park digital playground is coming to Sydney, showcasing traditional schoolyard games including hopscotch, sketch boards and Lego building, reimagined for the Gen Y era. Each exhibit is interactive and unique, we love the Light Ball Orchestra where you can create a live symphony by rolling large neon globes around the room. This is a great way to infuse some culture into your family-trip – your kids will think museums are anything but boring after a few minutes in this exhibit.

3.       Take a stroll through Martin Place

Martin Place transforms into a wonderland of festivity every night from dusk, tinselled with its iconic interactive Christmas tree, carollers every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday night and a pop-up GPO Dessert Bar with Nutella doughnuts and caramel popcorn.
