Bear Essentials has become one of Australia’s best bear festivals
Bear Essentials brings together the best of local bear culture and offers it to the world in one of the best cities in the world, Sydney.
Bear Essentials has come a long way to become one of Australia’s most renowned bear festivals, and its organisers, Harbour City Bears, believe this is due to the diversity of Australia’s bear community.
The event normally kicks off during Fair Day at Sydney Mardi Gras. Bear Essentials features a Sydney Harbour tour, yum cha and Bondi Beach outings, bingo, ten-pin bowling, and trivia and video game nights.
The regular 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.
Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action
