Where to Eat, Drink and Play in the Month of December

Christmas is fast approaching, but before it’s here in full swing there’s a whole month of fun and games awaiting you in Sydney. Check out our top ten picks for the month of December below!

Muriel’s Wedding the Musical | 6 Nov – 27 Jan

You’re terrible, Muriel! Bop along to those classic ABBA tunes, discover some new faves and join our much loved Muriel in the World Premiere of Muriel’s Wedding the Musical. Goodbye Porpoise Spit!

Mov’in Bed Open Air Cinema | 10 Dec

Cuddle up a little closer and crack open a bottle of wine at Moore Park’s Open Air Cinema. From Dunkirk to Toy Story, there’s something for everyone. BYO blanket or reserve yourself a bed (accommodates three people – ooh la la!)

La La Land in Concert| 7 Dec – 8 Dec

Are you ready to ugly cry again? Are you ready to ugly cry even more this time because there’s a live orchestra tapping at your heart strings?! Hop aboard the rollercoaster ride that is Mia and Sebastian’s relationship one more time with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

Christmas Fare| 14 Dec

Get all that Chrissy shopping done in one go at the Christmas Fare. Held at the iconic Hyde Park Barracks, over 40 stalls will be on hand for all your local food and retail needs.

Alice In Wonderland Ballet| 5 Dec – 12 Dec

The majestic Capitol Theatre will be hosting this wildly imaginative ballet production this December. You’ll be transported into a world of wonder with all your faves – The White Rabbit, The Mad Hatter and Alice herself, of course.

Tequila and Taco Festival| 2 Dec

Mejico in the CBD is transforming into a Tequila and Taco festival – is this what dreams are made of? You’ll get tacos, a mini-masterclass and the chance to taste over 15 different tequilas! This might get a little wild!

Lotus Petit Four Masterclass| 2 Dec – 3 Dec

Head to Sydney’s Lotus Galleries for a hands-on masterclass in chocolate and petit four creations. They’ll make the perfect gift and you’ll be able to recreate them at home. If you have a bit of a sweet tooth this is the event for you!


Ice Skating at the Cathedral| 16 Dec- 17 Dec

The perfect family Christmas outing! Strap on your skates and get ready for some good old fashioned fun on the ice rink. (And make sure you have your phone ready to capture some Facebook worthy falls.)

Blak Markets at Barangaroo| 3 Dec

Your one stop shop for Chrissy shopping, free entertainment and delish bush tucker. Over 30 stores will be selling unique indigenous arts, crafts and produce. And the best bit is knowing 100% of the profits are going back into the Aboriginal community – a good excuse to get spendy!

The Unbelievables | 19 Dec – 29 Dec

A bit of magic. A bit of circus. A bit of cabaret. Prepare to be amazed as some of the world’s best illusionists and performers take to the Opera House Stage for a breathtaking and mind blowing show.
