There are some very big things going down in Sydney this weekend, with the most super-sized being the start of The 20th Biennale of Sydney. So much mind-bending, challenging activities and art exhibitions will be spread across seven Sydney venues fashioned as “Embassies of Thought”; it’s a packed program with something for pretty much everyone so first and foremost we suggest heading heading out Cockatoo Island (one of the Embassies of Thought) and exploring that before you spread out your Biennale binge over it’s duration (until 5th June). Other than that, there’s a big burger showdown going on at Barangaroo, the ol’ Brewery Yard Markets down at Central Park, the Coogee Foreshore Festival, and more.... Read More | Share it now!
