What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
The Season of Sillyness may be over but we're going to get out there & continue the fun and joyful times - come join the bandwagon & see oh what fun (& ridiculous things) we have planned! Sydney’s Exploring Escapades (S.E.E) is Sightseeing in Sydney with a difference. We offer you the opportunity to see Sydney & it’s suburbs in a new light. Come and join our adventures where you will have fun and meet new people. No one is a stranger at S.E.E! Every S.E.E event throughout the year is different as you discover or rediscover the diverse parts of Sydney - each event is its own adventure with new challenges and possibilities! (this event is a themed event) FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: HOW DO I SIGN UP? RSVP yes on the Meetup site. HOW DOES IT WORK? Everyone is allocated into teams (teams on average are a size of 5). It’s fine if you don’t know anyone, we’ll sort it out on the day. By the end of the day you will know your team oh so well! You are welcome to bring friends who are not registered on Meetup. This event is combined with a few meetup groups so there will be others on board as well. If you’re feeling energetic or feel like a casual day – we will find a team for you! Tasks will be distributed which will outline the rules and the processes for the day which will gain points – points win prizes. The event will go into the early evening, between 530pm to 600pm. If you are only able to participate for part of the event, that is fine – let me know on the day. At the conclusion of the event you are welcome to stay on at the bar for dinner or drinks and get acquainted with more people! Prizes will be given away at the conclusion of the event. WHERE IS THE FINAL DESTINATION? The final destination will be at PJ O’Briens, 57 King Street, Sydney. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? $15 cash is payable/required on the day before the event commences. The fee goes towards the research, planning, administration and execution of the event. Please bring correct change on the day. WHAT DO I BRING? A fully charged camera or phone. Some of our adventures will include public transport, so please bring a charged up Opal Card with minimal Sunday supplement cost. WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? Please dress comfortable including very comfortable shoes – you may be turned away if you are not wearing appropriate footwear. Gym gear is not required. Ladies I don't recommend skirts/dresses. Slip, Slop and Slap (for the non Aussies – this means slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen and slap on a hat). Please wear lots of sunscreen! IS THERE ANY PHYSICAL RESTRICTIONS? You don't have to be the fittest person to take part in this event. We are only restricted by the city’s physical limitations. IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT? As long as you are over 18, there is no age limit. WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER? If it rains, we will still proceed. It’s rained a few times at previous events & it has never been cancelled.

[FYI: This meetup is combined with Sydney Language Exchange. 80+ people are expected] Hi Everyone, As usual, let's get together on Tuesday to have some fun. =) For this event, we do not have any particular topics or rules for you. Socialising and mingling with people is your only purpose! This event used to be all about language learning. However, I realise that language is just the carrier of culture. If you would like to master some languages, there is nothing more you can do than appreciating their culture first. We provide this opportunity for all passionate and enthusiastic people who loves to learn something different from what they already know, who likes to share their own experience and story to the others. Try to imagine: if you are heading to overseas for your holiday next month, there is nothing better than meeting some locals and getting some ideas before your trip. if you just arrive in this beautiful nation, it would be great making some local friends who can give you recommendations and maybe show you around. if you are eager to learn Japanese, I do not think something would be better than just talking to a "real" Japanese. But keep this in mind, this is not a dating event. Please do not bother anyone if they do not intend to find their partner in here. Follow your common sense, let women be ladies, gents please be gentleman. If at any point during the meetup, you have a question, suggestion or need help with something, please feel free to come and talk to me [Nick] or one of the other hosts. Don't worry about breaking conversations, we're definitely not deciding the fate of the universe. ;) If you're planning on attending, please do us a favour and RSVP. We do not limit the number of RSVPs since we book the whole area with the long tables between the entrance and the bar. Usually, after this routine meetup - around 8:30pm, some of us are heading off to somewhere nearby to have a late dinner. If you haven't had dinner yet, feel free to join us! Cheers Nick
Fancy some midweek Musical Bingo? El Santos is the place to be with a free taco with every full price drink purchase. http://elsantos.com.au/ There is a table reserved under "Lu" - unfortunately due to work commitments I am unable to attend but this is an opportunity for you to potentially meet new people and enjoy the specials. If you are new to meetup, there is always one or two regulars so please feel free to approach us - we've all been new to the scene and always welcome newbies :) Please note the table will only be reserved up until 550pm, if there are no shows, the table will be given away. NB: This is a combined meetup event, whilst numbers maybe low on one site, there will be higher numbers on other sites. In respect of owners of the groups I cannot disclose the names of the other meetup groups.
