The Manly Jazz Festival
If you’re in town for the October long weekend in 2016 you’ll be able to catch the tail end of the Manly Jazz Festival, which just gets bigger and better each year. Put your dancing shoes on and a smile on your face for an impressive selection of big bands, funk and soul, swing and gospel jazz services over the Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Month
Good Food Month is in town in October bringing a feast of foody delights to the long weekend.

The 2016 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final
If you’re an NRL fan you’ll already know about the 2016 Grand Final, taking place on Sunday 2 October at Sydney Olympic Park. It’s a great day out for visitors of every age and made even better with an upgrade to one of many exclusive packages, which offer better views of the action along with food and drinks.
