There’s never been a better time to visit Sydney than during the Art & About Sydney. The City’s streets and public spaces become a canvas for artists and performers, who will invite you to take part in a world of colour.
Start with our opening party, with celebrations in Martin Place and explore art around the city, in laneways, parks and galleries. To celebrate the launch The Art Gallery of NSW, State Library of NSW, Australian Museum, Museum of Sydney and Customs House Library will all be opening their doors until late. So take the opportunity to experience a ‘White Night’ in Sydney’s glorious spring.
Evenings are also perfect to enjoy Art & About, take a walk through the projections and Sydney Life in Hyde Park, a stroll through our fabulous laneways, fuelled by delicious food or enjoy a toe tapping secret lunchtime gig – there will be something for everyone.
Remember to book your accommodation early to avoid disappointment. For information about accommodation, attractions and tours and other general tourist information visit sydney.com
