Out and about in Sydney

July 15 - 21

Here is a little high light of What's in store for Sydney over the next few days. Cold as it may be, there are no excuses to get out and about this winter with lots on offer from Origin at a great venue to a Stereophonics gig.

The Wiggles Exhibition: The Wiggles Exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum has been open from September 24 2011 and runs to September 23 2013. The museum is celebrating the Wiggles 20th anniversary. See it before it starts on a three year national and international tour. Certainly not one just for the kids, this exhibition will keep the adults just as well enthralled. Displays include videos images, objects and lots of interactive displays and screen based multimedia featuring the Wiggles themes and characters. Adults alike will also be able to take part and learn all about the history of the Wiggles. The price for admission ranges from $6 to $12 and the doors are open from 10am - 5pm. 

Music At The Metro - Tuesday 16: If you are a fan of Dario Argento’s horror films from the 1970’s then for the very first time in Sydney you can catch a band called Goblin who are best known for sound tracking these films. The songs will include tracks from Dawn of the Dead, Deep Red, Suspiria and Roller. Check them out.

Instagram - Tuesday 16: Do you ever use Instagram? Do you want to know how it all works? Then why don’t you head down to Customs House Library on July 16. Stewart Dawes who is the SEO and social media director at Atomic Digital will discuss how to use Instagram effectively and give you the pros and cons of using it. Tickets to enter are free but spaces are limited and filling fast from what we hear.

State Of Origin 2013 - Wednesday 17: On Wednesday the final game in the State of Origin series will be played out at ANZ Stadium. The series is currently tied at 1 game all. Can the blues win? Or will the Maroons do it again? The game starts at 8pm and is our pick of the week!

East Is East Night Market - Thursday 18: Every Thursday starting from July 18 at the TAP Gallery in Darlinghurst will be a new vintage craft market. It only happens after dark. It opens at 6:30pm and winds down at 9:30pm.  This new market is being launched by the founder of East East boutique market which is in Kensington. It will be based on daytime markets but you will also be able to get vintage items and products which will not be priced at any more than $100. Some of the stalls will include clothing by Annie Lou’s Closet, bespoke jewellery from Holly Lolly Legs, a designer from Bondi and graphic tees by Uncle Fritz.

Stereophonics - Thursday 18: If you are a fan of Stereophonics, then you are in  luck. They are playing at The Enmore Theatre on Thursday 18 July. This British band was formed in 1998. They have now had 8 albums, 5 of which reached the top of the charts in their native country.  Their latest one is called Graffiti on the Train.

If you do decide to go to any of these venues or events then why not take advantage of car rental companies in major cities, like Sydney. They have affordable rates and you will not have to rely on public transport to get around the city. Car rental in sydney can work out cheaper than other forms of travel.
