Sydney Nightlife

Sydney’s diverse nightlife options include something for everyone – from the high arts of opera, classical music, and cutting edge drama, to a night on the town at a nightclub or pub.

The Sydney Opera House presents excellent opera, ballet, and classical music performances – the world-renown Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Australian Ballet, and Australian Opera all regularly perform here.
Sydney has a vibrant gay and lesbian scene, especially in the area around Oxford Street, Darlinghurst, and many hotels, bars and clubs cater for both. Popular events include the annual Gay Mardi Gras, four weeks of festivities held in every March featuring cultural and sporting events, a street parade and art exhibitions.
