Manly is amazing, we’re all agreed. However, with Sydney just a short ferry ride away, it’s worth knowing what’s going on across the harbour. Sydney is bustling with exciting things to do, and as a backpacker, it’s your duty to enjoy as much as you possibly can.

Check out what’s on this April and make the most of your travels:

Thursday 6 – Wednesday 19: The Sydney Royal Easter Show
Seeing as you are away from home this Easter and with no family obligations, you might as well have some fun. Head over to the Sydney Royal Easter Show and find out what an Australian country fair is all about.

Friday 7 – Thursday 27: Luna Park Rooftop Cinema
Look out over Sydney Harbour while you watch a movie – what can be better than that?

Sunday 23 April – Wednesday 31 May: Sydney Comedy Festival 
It’s good to laugh, so get your giggle on at the Sydney Comedy Festival. It’s running for a month, so you have no excuse not to go!

Uncorked Avalon: Sunday 23 April
You don’t even have to cross Sydney Harbour for this treat. Simply take the bus up the Northern Beaches, from Manly to Avalon and enjoy wines from the Hunter Valley.
