Getting out and about in Sydney is, at a glance, an expensive escapade — the cost of a stadium show regularly hits us for six. But if you do a little research, you'll unearth quite the cornucopia of affordable events, from film screenings to exhibitions, outdoor markets to parties. All under $20, these top quality events won't exactly empty your wallet. One cheeky lobster will gain you entry to some exceptional culture, so spend your money wisely and get amongst it.
