Sydney Winter Festival @ St Mary's Cathedral



After more than a month of delay due to peoples schedules' we were all finally free to celebrate Minh's birthday. It was decided we would spend the afternoon outdoor ice skating at St Mary's Cathedral for the Sydney Winter Festival (ending August 11) and have a lovely lunch at Bacco: Wine, Bar & Pasticcecia @ Chifley Plaza.

This is my second year in a row attending the Sydney Winter Festival (last year I went to the Bondi event) and I continue to think its a great event. Its an event for everyone, a group of friends, family, partners, anyone that just want to have a fun day. It was a beautiful day on Saturday with the sun shining and skating outside St Mary's Cathedral just felt GREAT! The ice rink was empty for us, considering we went to the first session of the day (12.00pm) and it was a week day. If you want a more romantic feel then I think a better option would be a night skating session where   they have fake snow and it would feel like a White Christmas.

We didn't want to ruin our appetite by feasting on the range of food stalls provided at the Sydney Winter Festival but no one can say no to desserts. The dutch pancakes is a lovely winter warmer to share with friends (or keep to yourself) and the Divine Doughnut cinnamon doughnut was the best doughnut I have ever tasted! It was freshly made so it was warm, and the dough was nice and soft. It was the size of my hand! I would go there just for the doughnut!

Hope you all had as much fun as I did!

Good food, good times!
