March | Autumn makes its return

Summer is starting to fade, but don’t give up on it yet! Keep your beach towels in tow for those warmer days and start saying hello to light cardigans, scarves and umbrellas for the Autumn coming. Crisp, fresh air is what makes people love enjoying those coastal brisk walks. If you’re feeling bittersweet that there will be less opportunities for afternoon drinks in the sun at the beach, never fear! For there are a heap of March events across Sydney and the Northern Beaches to keep you entertained and loving the changing season throughout March.


Sydney Royal Easter Show

The Sydney Royal Easter Show delights people of all ages with the biggest celebration of the country in the city. At the show you’ll be able to enjoy honoured traditions like meeting farmyard animals, watching agricultural competitions and devouring delicious food.

9Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour

Experience the romance of the original Bohemian love story at the magnificent Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour. You’ll taste the best of Sydney in a single night out: food, fireworks, singing and spectacle under the stars.
They open the site at 5pm, so arrive as the sun is setting over the city skyline and take in the view with a glass of bubbles as dusk falls. Meet for dinner at one of the pop-up bars and restaurants, then sit back in a grandstand at the water’s edge and immerse yourself in Puccini’s passionate music.
