Sydney North Events

Sydney’s North is an area known for its spectacular beaches and leafy wildernesses, and it home to some of Sydney’s top attractions. Some of the best Sydney events take place in the city's northern suburbs, with community markets, surfing events, gigs and concerts, workshops and classes, and food and music festivals taking up residence year-round north of the bridge.

Head to the Northern Beaches and check out Mosman, home to Taronga Zoo, Balmoral Beach, and a string of great cafes, pubs and shops. There are some great events on offer at the Zoo, and also at nearby Manly, a hub of surfing, sport and a great day out for the whole family. Further north at Palm Beach, a beautiful stretch of Sydney coast with great beaches, coastal walks, and a slew of chilled events to keep you busy.
