Winter is no time for hibernation! Check out these fun activities on in Sydney during July.

If you're a foodie looking for somethng to do in Sydney during July, look no further. Vivid may be over and the weather still may be chilly, but there are still plenty of reasons to get out and about, and enjoying everything the city has to offer.

We've rounded up the best ways to spend your July weekends in Sydney.

Barbie High Tea, The Shangri-La Hotel

If you have a little girl in your life you want to spoil - or you're just a big kid at heart, you can enjoy a special, Barbie-themed high tea created by the colourful 'punk princess of pastry', Anna Polyviou. From the 5th to 28th July, you can enjoy Barbie macarons, rainbow trifle and fairy bread as well as veggie sushi, chicken sandwiches and of course, fluffy scones. Adults are $65 per head and children $50. The adult price even includes a Barbie doll to take home!

Skating At, Hyde Park

Embrace the winter wonderland from now until July 21st, and try ice-skating at the pop-up rink of your dreams. With a huge, icy slide complete with a snow tube, rides, as well as plenty of Canadian-inspired food (read: Poutine!) and drinks (mulled wine), you can enjoy a day at Skating At. Each session lets you onto the rink for 45 minutes and the price ($27 for adults and $20 for kids, with group bookings cheaper) includes skate hire, which is super convenient if you don't own your own blades.

Vive la France at Harvest, The Star

Love your French cuisine? Harvest Buffet at The Star has a distinctly French flavour for the entire month of July, featuring dishes like goat’s cheese salad, French onion soup, salmon rillette, duck confit, potato dauphinoise and much more. There will even be a range of delectable regional specialities, including chicken basquaise, lyonnaise potato salad and Provencal seafood bisque. Lunch prices start at $45.60 for adults and $54.90 for dinner sittings.

Zeta Aprés Ski bar, Hilton Hotel

A pop-up bar until July 21st celebrating all things winter is the perfect place for a few delicious cocktails after work. In conjunction with Belvedere, Zeta Bar inside the Hilton's CBD property has three brand new winter-warming coktails called ‘Getting’ Figgy With It’, 'After 8's' and 'Buttered Blazer'. Our tip? Head there on a Friday night from 5 to 7pm to toast marshmallows at the roaring fire and grab a bite from the pretzel wagon.

Pig & Pinot, The Royal Paddington

Getting together with a group of friends? Look no further than an afternoon of hearty fare at The Royal Paddington. This is not your average Sunday roast - for a minimum of six guests at $80 a head, you'll get a two-hour wine package and succulently stuffed porchetta and rolled pork belly with fig and apple stuffing and four sides to share. Delicious!
