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.

Save on Hotels
