Seven sensational things to do in Sydney this autumn

As summer ends, autumn arrives. But don't go into hibernation. There's plenty to do in Sydney this Autumn!

All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey. Wait, that doesn’t really happen in Sydney often does it? Autumn, or Fall as the Americans say, can be quite warm still and in 2018 the entire month of March is still in daylight savings time. You may need to pack a jacket, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had in March, April and May.

Sydney Royal Easter Show

This year's Sydney Royal Easter Show oddly is outside of school holidays (as Easter doesn't fall in the school holidays this year), but it's still a must. Easter weekends are sure to be jam packed with people because of this, so be a cool parent and let your kids have a sickie. Plenty of learning can be had about animals and Australian farm life.

Mamma Mia the musical

If you're a fan of ABBA, the film turned-broadway show Mamma Mia is a must. The show is touring Australia and will be in Sydney until May. For those who haven't seen the film it's based on, it's set on a Greek island paradise and the Catherine Johnson-written tale centres around Sophie, a young bride-to-be. On the eve of her wedding, Sophie’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.
