Weekly What’s On Guide | 5th August to 11th August


It’s August already! The beginning of the month brings more chances to explore with the family, especially with Market by the River, Sculptures at Barangaroo, a rock painting party and horse party on this weekend!

During the week, we highly recommend popping along to the free Storytime at Bunnings Rydalmere with Pip. And with no rain forecast for next week, why not soak up some vitamin D while exploring a gem of a park we have recently reviewed like Biplane Park, John Berger Reserve, Rosslyn Blay Park and William Wade Park.

Plus, don’t forget to get ready for next weekend! It’s going to be massive! There is Super Science Saturday, Hornsby Steam Shuttles, Riverfest, India Day and Science in the Wild. Register or pre-book now so you don’t miss out!
