January is a magical time in Sydney, and the Sydney Festival provides additional excitement and activity to an already buzzing summer vibe. Performances and activities are held all over the city, in both open spaces and in great venues, including the Opera House! Every taste is catered for, with music, dance and theatre, as well as fun family activities and circus performances.

Amazing show. Absolutely loved it. Was funny, witty, sexy, athletic. Excellent venue. Easy ticket purchase. Easy parking even though right in city. Also got to experience other festival things. Down side - toilets were nasty but tjen it is public toilets at a public event.

We are mainly focused on the drama, dance and physical theatre at the Festival. It is difficult coming to this from out of town, as many shows are only on for a limited time over the month. We have not been disappointed by what we...More
