WEBSITE | TICKETS


Running between the 18/08 till the 27/08 this local event was a breath of fresh air! If you have not been to or would like a taste of Japanese culture with the beautiful backdrop of these gorgeous flowers, this festival is a must.

There were 3 areas that had rows of cherry blossoms, you be sure to have your gadgets ready for the ultimate snaps! With my visit, we were blessed with clear blue skies which made the trip more picturesque. Be sure to enter early so you avoid the crowds. There were various other programs, such as a sumo stadium, oragami, silent disco, cosplay and live entertainment. For just $5 for entry, you not only get to relax against the blossoms but you also get treated to a variety of tasty Japanese cuisines!

MAASive Lates: Science

To welcome the exciting Sydney Science Festival and National Science Week, the Powerhouse Museum opened its doors for a late night event (6 – 9pm) called MAASive Lates.

It was a night filled with all things science-related, it truly was like an adults’ playground! We each had an ‘experience passport’ that showcased a variety of exhibitions, performances and hands-on activities. It was a free-entry event, though you had to have purchased a ticket, I believe was useful to them knowing how many people would turn up. The event had 3 pop-up food trucks and a very long table topped with non and alcoholic beverages.

Some things that were showcased are:

UK space scientist Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock with ABC’s scientist Ruben Meerman, periodic table bingo (did not even attempt – due to lack of knowledge in this area haha), memory test, curator tours, speed meet a scientist, body movement workshop, science research encounters and much more! Can’t wait what they will offer for next year!
