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.

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.
