We’ve already gone big with our fabulous Mardi Gras recovery brunch in collaboration with Virgin Australia, our MAC cosmetic glow up stations and our stunning Drag concierge bringing a splash of camp to our guest experience!

But the season isn’t over yet! So we’ve rounded up the best events and experiences in Sydney, where you can join the celebration and explore the importance of LGBTQ+ pride in its final week!
