Summer has arrived and so has a month jammed packed with activities! Now it’s time to get planning.
Summer is here and it’s time to come out of our hibernation and embrace everything that is wonderful about living in Sydney. From day drinking to Christmas markets, December is jam-packed with experiences that will have you in the celebratory spirit. Here are our top picks of the things you should be doing this month.
Tramsheds Christmas Hall
For the month of December, the Inner West’s Tramsheds is transforming into Sydney’s very own European Christmas Hall. The precinct is currently hosting a range of festive workshops to keep everyone entertained this festive season, including Bubbles, Burrata and Boccocini making, Christmas Wreath Creation and Gingerbread Decorating. In between cooking classes, you can cool off with a $10 spritz from 4-6pm daily at Bodega 1094.
Commencing from Saturday 1st December, Tramshed’s very own Christmas Artisan Markets will also fill the precinct every Wednesday Night and Saturday. For more information on the cool things happening this festive season at Tramsheds, click here

You’ll lay witness to the body’s interior through the visual display of donated human specimens. More than 150 anatomical specimens are on display – all of which have been donated for the benefit of public education and exhibition. Adult tickets are $32 each, and can be purchased here.
Gin Lane – Boozy Soft Serve Ice Cream
This summer, cool down at Kensington Street’s Gin Lane with a selected range of gin-inspired Soft Serves! Using cold press juices, natural sugars and a splash of booze, you can expect a one of a kind cocktail experience. Think ‘Soft Serve Negroni’ with Tanqueray Gin, Campari, Rosso and cold pressed lime, served in a black natural waffle cone with candied orange and a chocolate flake. Also on the menu is a ‘Southside’ soft serve, made using fresh and candied mint, or otherwise an “Aperol Spritz” Cone with mint, candied orange and popping candy.
Gin Lane’s Soft Serve Cocktail Bar will be open Monday to Wednesday from 4pm – 5pm and Thursday to Saturday from 2pm – 4pm. Gin Lane’s Soft Serve cones will be available for $10 each and cups priced at $8.
Summer drinks specials at The Tilbury Hotel
Nothing quite says summer like a refreshing spritz! To celebrate the start of the new season, Woolloomooloo haunt The Tilbury are serving up FREE Aperol Spritz. Simply book into the restaurant during December and everyone in your booking will receive a complimentary spritz. Kicking off from Sunday 9th December, The Tilbury will also be offering a selection of cocktails at just $10 each, every Sunday! This offer will be available all day Sunday from any of the bars in the venue, through-out summer. For more information, click here.
Christmas really is the best time of the year. The smell of gingerbread and pine trees, mixed in with Michael Buble’s best-off festive album and glazed ham is enough to make anyone a little giddy. Want a sure fire means of getting into the Christmas spirit? Rally the troops and head along to one of these Christmas markets.
