This summer definitely looks different to summers of the past. Many of us are so used to packing our bags and jetting off to foreign countries to soak up some culture, great food and incredible experiences over the summer holidays. We may not be travelling Asia or Europe this year but there are still so many amazing things we can do right here in Sydney this summer.
Here are our Top 15 ideas:
