These venues include Hunters Hill Congregation Church, Vienna Cottage, and the Hunters Hill Town Hall. What’s more, they are only a short stroll from one another. Hence, be sure to catch this event sometime between 7th and 15th of May.

Indian Fashion Markets 2016 in Sydney

“Are there any other alternatives out there for markets?” In case you might be wondering, Indian Fashion Markets is an awesome choice, and it offers a unique experience as well! At this event, you will find everything Indian in one easy location. Also, you can expect this market to be first of its kind, and it will be held at Fairfield Showground, Smithfield Road, Sydney.

That’s why Sydneysiders and tourists can find a great array of artefacts, including woven scarfs, salwar kameez, traditional jewellery, and more, from India. Want to perk up your home decor with exotic Indian homeware? Mark this event on your itinerary!

Breakthrough Art Festival

The Breakthrough Art Festival is set to feature original artworks from some of the city’s emerging student artists as well as established artists. The theme of the event pertains to hope, and the works of each artist represents their unique view of what hope is all about.

Whether you consider yourself as an art aficionado, just come along and see these wonderful artworks in person from 12th to 15th May!

Gledswood Homestead & Winery – Mother’s Day Event

Looking for that perfect place to spend some quality time with your mum on the 8th of May? Gledswood Homestead & Winery’s event is “The One”, and will make your Mother’s Day wishes come true. It is that time of the year again, when mums are shown how much they are appreciated. Come and take her out for a lovely and relaxing day on the farm; there is live music, boutique market stalls, and more. If your mum prefers something more relaxing, such as a family picnic, simply bring your own picnic rugs and food, and have some family fun on the grounds of the farm.

Australian Hotel and Brewery’s Mother’s Day Event

Gledswood is not the only one hosting a Mother’s Day event in Sydney, as Australian Hotel and Brewery is throwing a party too!
