Friday and Saturdays are the big nights out for “Sydneysiders”, although during hot summer months most gay bars attract a good crowd most nights of the week.
The bars tend to get busy after 11pm. New “lockout” rules mean you won’t be able to enter a bar after 1:30am, and sales of alcohol are restricted between 3am and 5am (these rules only apply in certain districts).

Manly Beach is one of Sydney’s northern beaches and a popular seaside destination in its own right. Manly’s long sandy beach is generally less crowded than Bondi Beach.
