Sydney’s giving you the chance to expand your horizons this weekend. Give horticulture a try with the chance you build your own terrarium, let Real Bodies educate you on human anatomy, or travel to Spain through the cinematic lens with the Spanish Film festival. Sounds exhausting? Keep your mind sharp with a coffee-infused cocktail with Patron. Good luck, and happy learning!
