Travelling on a budget? You don't have to rule out as a destination. There's so much going on in this bustling Australian city, you can find plenty of events to keep you entertained - many of which are absolutely free! Here are a few coming up that are sure to get you excited.
An outdoor symphony
The Domain is one of the most gorgeous parks in Sydney, and in January, it will be offering a special opportunity to fans of classical music.
The Symphony on the Domain will be taking place January 26 at 8 p.m., under a large tent set up near Art Gallery road.
This year, the Symphony Orchestra will perform Gustav Holst's The Planets, fitting for a concert under the stars. Audience members will also get to hear readings of Shakespeare and view a fantastic fireworks display.
Something a little sweet
Rock Candy is a beloved treat, but have you ever stopped to think about how it's made? If you visit Sticky, a candy store located in The Rocks, you'll get a chance to see the process first hand.
Seven days a week, the candy-makers at Sticky give a free, live demonstration of how this colourful lolly is made. Of course, you'll likely want to sample some of the candy yourself, so bring a few bucks to pick up some treats.
For the foodies
Looking for a free event that will allow you to enjoy some delicious and affordable cuisine? Head to Belmore Park on Friday, December 6, for a chance to sample dishes from some of Sydney's best food trucks.
If the first event, which takes place from 5 to 10 p.m., becomes a hit, there's a good chance this will become a "first friday of the month" regularity - don't worry if you can't make the first one!
