COMMUNITY - There is free yoga in Elizabeth Bay.

Head down to Reginald Murphy Community Centre for an afternoon of breathe work and purposeful movement at the latest community event offering in Elizabeth Bay. Running for the whole of 2019, every Monday from 2pm- 3pm this could be the perfect lunch break for an Eastside local or for the independent traveller in Sydney.


Taught by a group of experienced local volunteer teachers, the classes are completely free. If you have your own mat they recommend bringing your own, but if you are new to yoga then there are mats available at the community centre.

If you are a yoga fanatic then you might want to check out our wellness article which runs through the best ways to refresh and recharge in Eastside.

Oxtravaganza is held on the 23rd of February throughout Oxford Street and the Darlinghurst area and is a way for local businesses to activate their shops and get amongst the Mardi Gras spirit. The event is an official part of the Mardi Gras program and includes pretty much all of your favourites. Sax Fetish will be hosting their infamous Naked Barber, Pearsons Florist is showing off with stunning rainbow bouquets and the East Sydney Arts and Community Centre will be hosting drag yoga.

There is something for the whole family and with the party continuing into the night, there is no excuse for everyone in Eastside to not get involved. If you want all the info as well as the official program and a way to get in contact with the organisers visit their official website.

COMMUNITY - There's a new ferry service from Elizabeth Bay

As of December 2018 Captain Cook Cruises have stepped up their game to include ferries, in the new cohort of ride sharing and on demand transport services.

Forget timetables, transport cards and traffic. The AHOY App from Captain Cook Cruises brings the ferry to you, when you need it. Similar to ride sharing services, the app lets you see where your ferry is, tracks your journey and time until your ferry’s arrival - all on your mobile device.


The first services for Sydney Harbour operate between Elizabeth Bay, Garden Island and Circular Quay during morning and afternoon peak-commuter times.

The AHOY fleet consists of the new and versatile “tubby-class” ferries. No payment, or ticket redemption required until you board the ferry.

Hail one of our ferries from any of these three locations:

Elizabeth Bay Marina
Garden Island Wharf
Circular Quay, Harbour Master Steps

Afternoon Peak Services - 4:15PM to 7:30PM
