Sydney: Gay and Lesbian
The Cultural Hub of Australia's East Coast
Sydney is a perfect destination for a fun-packed Gay and Lesbian getaway in the sun. A welcoming, cosmopolitan city, all of Sydney is geared up for tourism and Gay and Lesbian holidaymakers should have no worries about their trip. No Gay and Lesbian holiday to Sydney would be complete without checking out month-long The Mardi Gras throughout February. Possibility the world's most glamorous civil rights demonstration, this event is a tribal celebration staged by the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities. The Mardi Gras begins in a party atmosphere with speakers, music, previews of events and refreshments in Hyde Park on College Street before the Parade snakes its way across the city. The festival runs for around four weeks in locations throughout Sydney.
