5 Sydney Activities for Mid-Semester Break

By Wanyu & Bridget

Spit to Manly Walk

As the name suggests, this walk starts at the Spit Bridge and finishes at Manly, and I can assure you it is well worth trekking it to the Northern Beaches. The walk goes past stacks of secret hidden beaches as well as a thousand year old Aboriginal rock engravings. This walk will take around 1.5 hours and as it finishes at Manly Beach, you can have a coffee or some food to celebrate at the finish line (and make back all those lost calories). It’s definitely something you have to do at some point and there’s no better time than the holidays!

High Tea

While this one is a bit pricey, it’s made our list because it’s the holidays so treat yo’ self! This experience comes with a triple-tiered platter of scones, desserts and sandwiches, as well as unlimited teas and other drinks of course! The platter would make for not only a great gram, but a super cute outing with your friends, eating and drinking while overlooking the beautiful Sydney Harbor. There are heaps of places that offer their own High Tea but here’s one in the link below.

After Hours at Art Gallery of NSW

I know the art galleries have a reputation for being filled with old people and design students, but the after hours events are actually really cool! They’re filled with comedy and foreign films and a whole stack more, with the drinks being the cherry on top! There’s something on for everyone and did I mention it’s free entry?? Visit the link below for the Art Gallery of NSWupcoming events and definitely check some of them out while you still have time!

POP-UP GLOBE

Thou art more lovely than a summer’s day but art thou prepared for Shakespeare? Fancy yourself some culture? With showings of Macbeth, A Midnight Summer’s Dream, The Comedy of Errors and The Merchant of Venice, you are bound to find your hunger for comedies and tragedies satiated. The directors have promised that the show won’t host ‘dusty’ versions of Shakespeare — rather, performances will be more like a party. Sessions will running until November 4, so you can enjoy this experience during and even after the mid-semester break.

Did you miss it?

One of the toughest things about being a student is your limited budget. As Wellbeing Warriors, we completely understand your plight so here is a crazy cheap, $7, movie ticket recommendation! In the heart of Sydney, Dendy Opera Quays Cinemas at Circular Quay will be screening these great releases with limited sessions available every day for an entire week! The key releases you’ll be able to catch this Mid-Sem are BlacKkKlansman starting on September 20 and Crazy Rich Asian from September 27.
