Exploring Sydney during the Women in Media Conference

What's on in Sydney during the biggest Media Conference of the year

Calling all media professionals! It's time to mark your calendars for an extraordinary event that will ignite your inspiration, elevate your career, and foster meaningful connections. The Women in Media National Conference is taking place on the 8th and 9th of September 2023, gathering industry experts, visionaries, and trailblazers for the first time in the vibrant city of Sydney.

To make the most of your visit, we have found the best ways to spend your time once the conference has concluded for the day. Prepare to be immersed in a two-day experience that celebrates and empowers women in the media landscape, while enjoying the best of what Sydney has to offer.

Where to stay

With the conference venue being located in the heart of Sydney, there are many accommodation options available. For the ultimate convenience, for both your budget and travel plans, we recommend booking a room at The Tank Stream Hotel. A St Giles Hotel that boasts the perfect combination of contemporary interior design and rich historical significance.

The Tank Stream is a stone's throw away from Martin Place, the Sydney Opera House and Circular Quay, while being home to Le Petit Flot French Restaurant. The Tank Stream Hotel is also offering a special discounted rate for attendees which can be conveniently booked here.

Where to wine and dine

Sydney is a haven for food enthusiasts, boasting a vibrant culinary scene that caters to every palate. Given the array of dining experiences available, you’re sure to find a venue that will create a memorable dining experience.

If Asian cuisine is on your favourites list you may want to make a booking at Redbird Chinese where there are options on the menu for any food lover (and critic!). You can also venture out to the two-hatted NOMAD restaurant in Surry Hills, which is a charcuterie lover’s dream. Additionally, the seafood on the waterfront at Love.Fish Barangaroo is also a unique food experience that can enhance your Sydney visit.

We’ve lifted some recommendations from Collabor8 Women, who host events at on-trend Sydney restaurants owned or run by women. Make a booking at one of these venues for a great dining experience while debriefing with your team or new friends you meet throughout the day.

Sydney is renowned for its vibrant events and exciting happenings. During the conference weekend, you'll have the chance to immerse yourself in the local buzz and experience the city's lively atmosphere. From art exhibitions and theatre performances to music festivals and outdoor markets, there's always something happening in Sydney.

If you’re planning to stay a little longer, or arrive a little earlier, the Muogamarra Nature Reserve is open to the public and has a beautiful paradise of rare flowers. It’s the perfect opportunity to get outdoors and explore unmatched beauty, especially as it is only open for six weeks!

You also have the opportunity to be inspired by the artistic talents on display at the new architectural Art Gallery of NSW. It’s free to visit, with guided tours and ‘Drop in and Draw’ sessions frequently available. Stay tuned to local event listings to discover the latest trends and make the most of your time in this dynamic city.
