From the dazzling Sydney WorldPride and Vivid Sydney to the highly-anticipated FIFA Women’s World Cup and Formula 1 GP, Australia is lining up perhaps its biggest ever cultural year in history. If the Land Down Under is on your bucket list, now is the time to tick it off! Here are some of the eye-catching events, festivals and attractions that are sure to bless your social feed!

Wear your colours proud


For the first time, a city in the Southern Hemisphere is chosen to host the global festival WorldPride. Sydney is the host city for 2023, with the annual Mardi Gras also being incorporated into the event to make it one-of-a-kind. From Feb 17 to March 5, the ‘Emerald City’ of Australia will offer a broad range of events covering everything from arts, sports, concerts, parties, theatre, and First nations programming and human rights conference. 


You can also take part in the Domain Dance Party which will be the largest LGBTQIA+ circuit event the nation has ever witnessed! All the fan-favourite attractions are set to  come back, along with a few new events, which will make it one of the biggest dates on Sydney and Australian calendar year.

Indulgent dining episodes in SA


Food lovers can eat good this year, well, technically every year since we’re talking about Australia! But the annual food adventure festival of Tasting Australia makes us wanna head to Adelaide/Tarntanya just for a bite of the South Australian produce. Expect our nation’s top culinary maestros under one roof, enticing guests from all over the world to discover different flavours of events including long lunches, dining with the chefs, masterclasses, private plane experiences to explore more about this popular sight and much more! Once the full schedule is out, you can plan out your event accordingly.


The biggest festival of lights, music, ideas and food


Back to Sydney, Vivid Sydney marks the arrival of winter in Australia and celebrates it with a full-scale program of lights, music, and ideas, along with this year’s newest addition, Vivid food! From hopping on one of the popular Vivid cruises to climbing the summit of the Harbour Bridge, there are many ways you can experience the best of the festival. The entire harbour city will be the venue for the festival which takes place from 26 May to 17 June. 


The whole city will feel the pulse of the beats when top music artists from every corner of the country perform their famous hits in the many free and ticketed events. Along with the famous Light Walk, many of the famous edifices get embellished in vivid colours, light installations and 3D projections including the sails of the Opera House, which is an iconic festival highlight. Vivid Sydney cruises are the most popular vantages to enjoy this drawcard. While the famous names around the world inspire us with their mind-blowing talks as part of Vivid Ideas, Vivid Food will see top chefs of our nation come together to create festival food events.


Cheer for Sam Kerr and the Matildas


The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup will be a  tournament of firsts – first time being hosted in two countries, and the first time being held in Oceania. The most elite women’s players from 32 nations battle it out in 64 intense matches, which will be held in over 9 cities, spanning from Australia to New Zealand, including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. This is your ultimate opportunity to witness the women in yellow and green represent our proud country, and strive to reach the ultimate honours, live! The event takes place from the 20th of July till the 20th of August, with the final being held in the Sydney Olympic Park.
