Things to do in Sydney this September

Sydney Fringe Festival

The exciting Sydney Fringe Festival is back this year with an impressive 400 shows presented across 21 different Sydney suburbs, with the bulk of shows taking over the Oxford Street precinct. Book your favourite shows quick- whether you are after drama, comedy, action, or just something fun and engaging- there is something special for everyone.

Fashion Industry Secrets Revealed

Head to Castle Towers this month to uncover fashion’s best-kept secrets. Don’t miss the much-anticipated workshops at ‘The Wardrobe’ pop-up happening until Saturday 30 September. You’ll get a chance to learn how to create glamorous looks from models and Australian fashionistas such as Laura Dundovic and Kristy Cross.

A Midnight Visit

Prepare for a very special, large-scale, original, and interactive theatre production. The beautiful works of Edgar Allan Poe come to life across 30 rooms in an abandoned Newtown warehouse to bring you a unique experience. Bring your nearest and dearest and do not miss this one!


Experience the magnificent Evita, an original vintage musical coming to Australia this September starring pop queen Tina Arena as Eva Perón. This sought after production is the work of Opera Australia and John Frost that worked collaboratively to revive this 1978 West End classic.

Sydney Running Festival

The Sydney Running Festival is back this year and as usual, caters for runners of all levels with distances to suit everyone ( ranging from the not-so intimidating 3.5k to an impressive 42.2k) Starting at the lovely Milsons Point, you will get to see some of Sydney’s best scenery along the way.

The Merchant of Venice

Staying true to Shakespearean times, this production of The Merchant of Venice presents an all-male cast that delivers a powerful and clever performance. Possibly one of Shakespeare’s best plays exploring the themes of belonging and acceptance against discrimination, it is an engaging and sparkly production. If you are looking for something both funny and confronting, this one’s for you.

Accidental Death of an Anarchist

Loosely based on a real-life investigation of the death of Giuseppe Pinelli, who after committing a robbery mysteriously falls to his death from a Police Station window, this stellar production starring an all-female cast brings an entertaining and insightful drama-comedy that will captivate you. Showing at the Opera House, it’s a great option for a fun night out.

Sydney Spring Carnival

It’s that time of year again! Enjoy the races at the Royal Randwick Racecourse where the carnival runs over 10 weeks. No better excuse to dress to impress and enjoy a drink or two while you network, socialize and unwind.

The Archibald Prize

Get up and close to the fabulous portraits on show at this year’s Archibald Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW. This marvelous showcase delivers some of the most powerful works by Australian artists as the Archibald celebrates its 96th year. We love to inject some art and culture into our week and visit the Art Gallery of NSW on Wednesday nights when doors don’t shut until 10 pm and quirky-cool events are paired with the exhibitions on offer.
