As 2015 draws to a close, it’s hard not to think how the hell did that happen so fast, right? But now 20 years on from the first ever City Hub newspaper, it’s interesting to see what Sydney has become. And 2015 was definitely an interesting year for everyone, that’s for sure. We’ve seen nanny-state lockouts juxtaposed with some of the biggest parties and live music acts to happen in the city. We’ve seen communities unite against racism, sexism and homophobia. We’ve seen high-level political scandals and resignations. But if there’s one staple truth in Sydney, it’s the diversity of her residents.
Best Of 2015 has been put together by an incredibly talented team of contributors, whose personal experiences range from DJing in nightclubs to attending university to presenting on Hawkesbury radio. Thus, we’re proud to feature a truly diverse range of great places doing great things in this comprehensive guide. I personally am hugely excited to bring this 20th anniversary edition of Best Of Sydney to you, and hope that it might help you to navigate our diverse and beautiful city.
