St Ives Medieval Fair

St Ives Medieval Fair

For the third year Sydney’s St Ives Medieval Fair Showground will be hay-strewn and hand-forged into an accurate recreation of Medieval Europe. Covering cultures and customs from the Dark Ages to the High Middle Ages, your ticket will give you the unmatched experience of authentic medieval events, shows and atmosphere (all 100% Plague-free!).
Feel the soft fletch of an arrow graze your cheek as you let loose your bowstring. Surge and jeer with the crowd at the jousting tournament, where the thunder of hooves and the crunch of armour sees your champion victorious. Bargain with peddlers of skill and beauty to build your inventory of weapons, armour and jewellery. Later, tear at joints of meat in a grand feasting hall while jesters and musicians play for your favour in the firelight.
This two-day festival offers a glimpse into an amazing pocket of time now lost to history. It lives on in the passion of our artisan crafters, our re-enacters, our organisers, and you.

St Ives Medieval Faire – Spectacular Family Entertainment

Our program of events fills the needs of both the avid fan and the curious. Everything except food, drink and goods in the St Ives Medieval Faire is included in your ticket price. Every demonstration, every show, every experience is yours to explore once you walk through those gates. For the family, there is a wealth of activities and stalls to keep everyone entertained, organised and well-sustained throughout the day.

Complete your immersion into this fascinating time by donning your own tunic and armour for the festival. Dress yourself as a tyrannical king, a warrior, a merchant, or a character of your own fantasy. Prizes will be awarded to those who impress.

Whatever your station and status out there in the modern world, the St Ives Medieval Faire will have you engaged and fascinated, from rooster-call on the first day to the final clang of the gates on the last.

Yacht CNB 76

Yacht CNB 76

Once you have crossed the boat’s large cockpit, the CNB 76 magic works when you enter the salon: the panoramic view  from inside is surprising for a yacht with such fluid, elegant  exterior  hull and cabintop lines. Thank you, Philippe Briand!

The accommodations, by interior designer Jean Marc Piaton are stylish, comfortable and functional. The double aft cabin and the galley will welcome extremely comfortably a  professional crew whose presence will not intrude on the owner’s and guests’ privacy.

Beneteau Oceanis – Sydney International Boat Show 2015

Sydney Boat Show 2015 – On board the Oceanis 45, harmony reigns supreme: everything is in its place on this beautiful yacht, which can aspire to meet a varied profile of life aboard.
This can be recognized in a great number of intelligent details: a chart table that is also a living room table, a bilge increasing overall comfort, an open bathing platform making access to the sea easier.
With its 4 layouts, it is a yacht that adapts to all requirements: from going round the world with 2 or 3 cabins to accommodating large families with 4 double cabins.

Palm Beach

Palm Beach is Sydney’s northernmost stretch of sand, a 50-minute drive from the Sydney city centre. Dramatic Barrenjoey Head is at the northern end of the beach, with historic Barrenjoey Lighthouse and keepers’ cottages at the end of an easy 2.3 km walk. This section of the beach is popular with experienced surfers looking for great waves.

At the southern end is a more protected environment for swimming; a 35-metre ocean pool is deep enough for laps but has a shallow end that’s ideal for kids. Other activities include fishing, golf, sailing or diving. Take the ferry from Palm Beach to pretty Ettalong.

 

New Year’s Eve – Long Reef

Situated on the northern end of Dee Why Beach, Long Reef Beach is not well known amongst Sydney-siders and is mostly frequented by locals. It extends for almost 2km from the base of Long Reef Point to Dee Why Point and is backed by Dee Why Lagoon.

The New Year’s Eve fireworks are set off from a barge – right off Dee Why Beach – and can be seen up and down the northern beaches coast.

The display starts at 9pm and families are invited to come down for a meal in one of the Dee Why restaurants or to have a picnic in the reserve.
