March holidays mark the end of summer in Sydney. Veer away from the beach and celebrate art, food and wine. And St Patricks Day of course. From street parades to Australian wine tasting courses.
March vacations: wine, food & art festivals
March vacations start with the big Sydney Mardi Gras Parade on the first weekend of the month.
That's the culmination of a month of gay and lesbian sport, cultural and just sheer fun activities.
March is also, officially, the end of summer. So thoughts start turning away from the hedonistic beach and towards the hedonistic cultivation of mind and body.
Love modern contemporary art? Art Month runs through all of Sydney's March events. Exhibitions, workshops and tours - there's something for everyone.
Anything that can be classed as modern contemporary art is covered: food, sculpture, bicycle art.
There's art at night to combine art, music and a bar that goes till late, an art trail to discover both a precinct and its free art galleries and events specifically for children.
Great new world wines, produce and chefs for the best possible wine and food matching. Or create your own wine and food gift basket.
