There’s a cultural richness about Sydney, formed from the unique intersection of ancient Aboriginal culture, European heritage and the customs of generations of emigrés from every corner of the globe. That’s why the city overflows with galleries showcasing old art and the very very new, theatres hosting modern dance, rollicking musicals and powerful operas, and venues where the drawcards range from music megastars to diva-licious drag queens.
