Here we are already, on the home stretch. Just five days of Sydney Festival fun left to enjoy – but that doesn’t mean you should stop just yet. There are so many fabulous things to see and do (and eat), especially over at Barangaroo. Let us run you through three of your best options…

The Beach at the Cutaway, Barangaroo Reserve
If you haven’t been yet, then you absolutely MUST make it down to experience this phenomenal installation of 1.1 million recyclable balls. Dive in, float away or chill out in one of the deck chairs. The choice is yours. Entry is free between 10am and 5pm.

Feast away
We apologise in advance. You are going to have to make some BIG decisions when it comes to having lunch at Barangaroo. Should you go for a pork ‘sausage dog’ (with red cabbage, lemon yoghurt sauce, mint and walnuts) or a beef ‘sausage dog’ (with kohlrabi remoulade, watercress and craft ale mustard) from Chrissy’s Cuts? A freshly made magherita from Pizza da Mario or Lebanese bread with peri peri chicken and salad from Sundweesh? A gelato or coffee from Bar Coco? Enjoy a two course sharing menu with a glass of wine by the water from the amazing new Lotus Barangaroo? Antipasto, pizza and an Aperol Spritz at Ventuno Pizzeria Birreria Enoteca? An incredible spread of Lebanese food from El-Phoenician Walsh Bay? There really are too many amazing options and too little time to experience them all. But it’s still worth a try…

Take part in Baraya: Sing Up Country
