Winterfest Sydney Medieval Fair

Hawkesbury Showground – 1st – 2nd July

Knights on horseback will be jousting, there will be birds of prey flying about, hand to hand combat, an archery range, a knight’s school, and traditional crafts of the medieval world.

First established in 1968 the Sydney International Boat Show is the largest recreational marine event in the southern hemisphere. It is estimated that over three million visitors from all over the globe have attended.

There will be in excess of 200 exhibitors in both venues with more than 145 boats on display in the Marina and more than 700 more boats in the exhibition halls.


Sydney Opera House – 9th Aug

A trip to city is never complete without a visit to the iconic Opera House. The performance of Wagner’s Parsifal should bring a capacity audience flooding into the Opera House.

Parsifal was the last opera that Wagner wrote, and possibly the greatest tenor in the world today, Jonas Kaufmann will be taking the leading role. This rather complex piece is rather for the avid Wagner fan, but those that delight in his music are in for a rare treat.
