There's just so much happening in Sydney in summer.
The air has a special vibe - is it the salt on a thousand tanned skins, the scent of barbecued prawns or simply the energy you feel sparking through the city?
Sydney's full to bursting with locals and visitors all month. The beaches are crowded, the theatres are chock-a-block, friends are getting together, artists are doing their thing.
Outdoor bars, pop up art installations, free open air concerts, there's fun everywhere.
January vacations with music, theatre, dance and street fun. 2012 spotlights famous Aboriginal people and black theatre.
The Sydney Festival pops with a big bang (and a big band) on Festival First Night. Usually the first weekend in January, in 2012 it's on Saturday 7th.
Everything's free on the first day (and night).
Free concerts include international artists Washington, Manu Chao La Ventura and Aboriginal artist Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu. (There's lots more of course)
The Festival runs through to 29 January 2012.
Summer in Sydney Australia means open air cinema, whether in a park, or on the big screen which emerges from the harbour.
From latest releases to classics, see them under the stars.
Sydney's outdoor cinemas go from ticketed seats with champagne to picnic blankets and free films.
First catch the sunset. A glass of bubbles or cold white wine, something to eat, watch the stars come out, and then the film starts.
January holidays, don't you love them?
Find out what's on and what it all means.
Start with some Australia Day facts, add a little history, stir gently.
Now fold in commemoration, celebration, respect and fun. Lots of goodwill for the flavour.
A small pinch of optimism and we're ready to let it prove and rise.
It's a co-operative recipe, join in.
Sometimes the Chinese New Year falls in February, but in 2012 it's part of January holidays.
Does Sydney Australia have the best Chinese New Year traditions outside mainland China? We think so.
Join the fun of dazzling street parades, bustling new year markets and exciting dragon boat races.
Sydney's 2012 Chinese New year celebrations will be officially launched on Friday 20 January, with the Twilight Parade being held on Sunday 29 January.
This festival of Chinese New Year traditions includes more than 60 events including temple tours, a film festival, art exhibitions, kids' events, cultural and historical tours, calligraphy demonstrations, opera and banquets. Don't miss it.
Many January events carry on into February. Chinese New Year can be either, open air cinema runs through both months (and morphs into the world's best short film festival in February) and open air music festivals continue on as well.
