August Events in Sydney

It’s that time of year again when we’ve almost made it through winter and spring is just around the corner. As always, Sydney has so many things on including a few more active events to get your blood pumping.

Sunday 13th August, Hyde Park CBD to Bondi Beach 

The iconic 14 kilometre event will attract everyone from serious runners to casual walkers to raise money for over 900 charities. Look forward to training runs, yoga, live entertainment,  great food, killer boot camps and more!


The Colour Run
Sunday 20th August, Centennial Park 

For something a bit more playful, grab your friends and family for 5 kilometres of fun running where you will be covered with coloured power at each kilometre mark.


Alternatively,  if the mere thought of running makes you short of breath, don’t worry because there is plenty more to see and do.

Smooth Festival of Chocolate
Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th August, The Rocks 

If you’re a major lover of chocolate and desserts, this isn’t one to miss! From gelato and macaroons to Nutella filled doughnuts, use these 2 days to bring your dessert dreams to life.


Sydney Tea Festival
Sunday 20th August, Carriageworks 

Discover some of the best specialty and artisanal teas as you stroll through the tea market. Pick up some hand-made teaware and enjoy delicious sweet and savoury treats to accompany your purchases.

Sculpture at Barangaroo

Saturday 5th August –  Sunday 20th August, Barangaroo Reserve

The visually stunning, free-to-the-public outdoor exhibition will surprise and delight Sydneysiders and visitors as they explore the greenspace at the spectacular Harbour foreshore park.

Visitors can enjoy 14 artworks by nine established and emerging Australian artists, and the park is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. However we recommend to come between 8:00am-6:00pm daily to see the artwork in its entirety.
