Things To Do In Sydney & Surrounds: Autumn Edition (Part 1) 2016

Things To Do In Sydney & Surrounds: Autumn Edition (Part 1) 2016

 

Turandot on Sydney Harbour

Handa Opera presents Turandot, a story of death-marked love told with salt in the air, light on the sails and the city skyline reflected in your glass

I’m so not an opera girl! I love musicals but I’ve actually NEVER EVER been to the opera before so I was pretty excited to share the experience with my Mum on our stunning Harbour. I was relived at the fact sub titles existed which meant you can follow the flow of the story nicely. I throughly enjoyed by dose of “KULCHA” and can’t wait for the next performance. I’m an opera convert now! Grab a glass of sparkling, take your seat and soak in what our beautiful city has to offer. Tickets through Opera Australia , runs till 24th April. Dog lovers TURANDOG (yes, that’s bring your pooch to the opera day!)

Centennial Parklands, Column Garden

LOOK at the beauty! These are NOT photo shopped, it’s just the Autumnal air and plant life. The purple trees are my favourite Autumn tree: Tibouchina. I’ve now got one growing in my garden and had the first flower over the easter holiday period- YAY I’m now a Plant Geek (seriously)

Take a self guided walk and please stop by me and say hi if you see me training my New Outlook Fitness gals.

Also big shout out to the coffee van in the middle of the park (at the Duck Pond) for an AH-MAZING BLT roll. It’s the BEST you’ll taste, seriously.

The Championships, Randwick Racecourse 2nd & 9th April

I’ll admit I’m a sucker for three things: frocking up, champagne and girl time and that means the races for me are a great opportunity to do all three at the same time.

Speaking from personal experience as a member of the ATC, I would definitely recommend the Members area of Randwick as opposed to the public- things are slightly more civilised (now, I did say slightly!) and the dress code is more formal.

The great thing about a day at the races is a chance to let your hair down, have a few too many champers and maybe win some money. If betting just isn’t your thing there is Little Bondi (The best of Bondi’s dining scene at the races), fashions on the field and pamper lounges.

Callala Beach, Northern Side of Jervis Bay

I’m around people pretty much all day, everyday (like most of us!) and I’ve gotta say, nothing beats a little solitude, especially on a white sandy beach with turquoise blue water. Am I right?

If you haven’t been to Jervis Bay and surrounds- you are totally missing out. It’s so reminiscent of the Whitsunday’s but without the flight and loads of people. I personally love travelling to Jervis in the autumn and winter months to avoid the crowds because let’s face it- it’s not a secret anymore and it does get busy and accommodation can be expensive during Summer.

Callala Beach is exceptionally wonderful and is part of the Jervis Bay aquatic reserve. The water is super clean and crystal clear it’s breath taking. I even plucked some fresh seaweed directly from the ocean and munched on it- it was delicious. Callala is your quintessential Aussie beach town.

We live relatively close to Callala Beach so it took less than 90 mins, From Sydney it’s approx 2.5-3 hrs) you could do a day trip you where pushed for time but a better option would be to  jump on Stayz and book a beach house. Pack a picnic and your cossies and you’ll be good to go!

Where are you off to this Autumn?
