NSW Exhibitions and Shows

Sydney is a vibrant city that always has something going on. Home to a myriad of exhibitions, galleries, and festivals, Sydney is a great place to see a show amid the world famous landmarks of the beautiful Harbour City. So if you're planning a trip to Sydney during the summer, make sure you check out some of the other events happening around the city.

With world-class facilities located in Darling Harbour, and numerous high quality galleries, Sydney is the perfect place to see an exhibition. Whether you're interested in ancient cultures, cutting edge artistic showcases or the latest fashion trends, Sydney will have a showcase to suit you!

The Sydney region is a collection of smaller cities, each with their own distinct cultural events. A number of neighbourhoods closer to the city, such as the Inner West, the Lower North Shore, and Eastern Suburbs, have festivals and street fairs to celebrate their pocket of Sydney throughout the Spring and Summer months.

There is something typically 'Sydney' about celebrating the cuisine from around the world during the warmer months. With a series of nighttime markets and numerous special cultural events, Sydney becomes the foodie centre of Australia. As a multicultural city, Sydney has embraced the delicacies and the hearty meals of every culture to settle on our shores. During Spring and Summer, Sydney sings with the sounds of chefs and their staff as they clamour to feed hundred of hungry city dwellers.

Whether you're looking for amazing art exhibits, ancient cultural artefacts on display, or the best cuisine on offer, dive in and experience the best that Sydney has to offer!
