Join in on the fun for Sydney World Pride 2023 at Absolutely Queer, an exhibition celebrating contemporary queer creativity at the Powerhouse Museum

This absolutely fabulous and free exhibition will feature everything from installation and performance artists to videogame developers, cartoonists and fashion designers.

🌌 Star-gazing in Royal National Park
🕙 Anytime!

If you missed out on Coldplay tickets, take that special someone to experience the next best thing - your own sky full of stars, in the Royal National Park.

Australia is renowned for its natural beauty and pristine national parks and the low levels of air and light pollution make them among the best star-gazing locations in the country. Winter is also recommended as the best time as the crisp air grants better visibility.

Grab your cameras, your cosiest blanket and some snacks for the drive!
