Summer is just around the corner and Sydney is back to life… not that it’s ever asleep anyway…. With numerous music festivals, food events, art shows and exhibitions there is plenty to choose from. Last weekend I went to the 18th Biennale of Sydney in Cockatoo Island. It’s easy to get there as there is a free ferry service provided from Wharf 6 in Circular Quay every 30 minutes. Fifteen minutes later you get to the island (as long as the captain can park the boat – it took another 15 minutes to do it during my trip…). The only thing you’ll need is time. You can spend hours wandering around the exhibits. If you get tired grab a coffee at one of the bars and cafes, relax admiring panoramic harbour views.
