If you own real estate in Carlton, there's a good chance you spent this past weekend in the heart of Sydney, listening to the fantastic live music being presented at The Terrace. And if you're disappointed because you missed it, then there's some good news for you: You've got plenty of more opportunities to see it.
The Terrace, which is held at the northern side of the Sydney Town hall and kicked off on 18 September, will be running all the way through to 27 September. In that time, music aficionados and anyone who likes to get out and about in the city can enjoy the great line-up of indie artists, Latin Jazz musicians, DJs and more who will be dazzling attendees and passers-by. The event will be running every day during this time from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m, except for Sunday, on which it will be running 3 p.m to 8 p.m.
"This one off live venue takes its inspiration from the garden rooftops of New York," said lord mayor Clover Moore.
"It's thrilling to be able to open up new and intriguing city spaces for live music and performance."
It's not just live music that anyone wandering in the area will get to see, though. Customs House Square is also the location of a 21-metre high sculpture made from more than 300 bamboo poles. This stunning work, evoking the beautiful forests which once graced Sydney Cover before European settlement, will be here until October 11. And if that's not enough, art enthusiasts can also check out two exhibitions at Hyde Park until this date.
It's all part of Sydney's Art and About programme, a months-long festival which aims to showcase the best of international and local art. Anyone living in real estate in Allawah, Beverley Park and similar areas will be kicking themselves if they miss out on the festivities.
