Sydney Bear Essentials
Bear Essentials™ is an opportunity to get to know local, interstate and international bears, cubs and admirers. It’s a way of participating in our community and it’s a lot of fun.
If you’ve been to a Bear Essentials™ “run” before, you’ll already know what to expect!
Many local Sydneysiders take the whole week off work just so they can attend all the Bear Essentials™ events, or hook up with international travellers visiting Sydney. Of course, a few of us take a few extra days as well, because we need to recover!
Don’t miss Friday night bears at Kinselas and Sunday Bears at the Bank will also take place, and of course parties such as Underbear, Toga and the popular Wet Furs pool party.
We have found hotels with good reviews that keep you close to all the action,

Sydney city centre (comprising Pyrmont, Circular Quay, The Rocks and the Central Business District) is relatively compact and can be explored on foot or by public transport, ride sharing and taxi.
