Do: Parramatta Winterlight Festival
In Parramatta the Winterlight festival returns for its second year with an array of winter wonders to attend. If you are an elegant swan that glides across the ice, there will be a rink for you. However if, like me, you’re a baby elephant on the ice, maybe you can try your hand at a toboggan. If you don’t want to partake in the action there will be a range of hot chocolates, bratwursts and other wintery delights to thaw you out. There’s plenty at the winterlight festival to get you out of the house this winter.
See: Blak Markets
In celebration of NAIDOC week, the Blak Market festival will take place at Sydney’s Barangaroo. Learn a thing or two at Bush Tucker cooking demonstrations, have a stickybeak at the Rarrk painting exhibitions. If you want to really get into it you can sign yourself up for a weaving workshop. Blak Markets is a real chance to get involved in Aboriginal artists celebrating culture.
