Sydney Festival 2017: A Great Reason to Visit Sydney in January
If you celebrated New Year's Eve in Sydney, then you should definitely extend your stay in the city. Why? It will be a shame not to experience one of the biggest festivals in Australia. The Sydney Festival runs from January 7 to 29, which means that you still have time to book a flight or hire a car to the capital of New South Wales.
The Festival started in 1977 and is now considered as one of the largest cultural celebrations in the country – and it keeps on getting bigger and better each year. The Sydney Festival 2017 features a wide array of performances from over 1,000 artists – ranging from cheeky cabaret and high energy jazz to contemporary dance and indie rock.
There are more than 46 event venues to choose from including the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour, Sydney Town Hall and Parrmatta Park. That's why a rental car can come in very handy when visiting the city so you can easily go from one venue to another. To help you find a reliable and cheap car hire in Sydney, visit VroomVroomVroom.
