If Beach Road Hotel is your regular watering hole, you’d be glad to know that most of the Bondi Bowl-A-Rama parties will be held at the friendly local with appearances by Philadelphia Grand Jury and the Bang Gang DJs amongst others. Bondi local or not, a trip to the iconic beach in February is a must as some of the best skaters show off their moves at the Bondi bowls, not the lawn bowls but the skate bowl. You won’t miss it. There’s an art show, a launch party logically followed by a wrap party, parties in between and of course the grand competition itself on Feb 19. No alcohol is permitted at the competition but the Beachy is only a short walk away so control yourselves. Check out the website below for the detailed event breakdown.

Feb 16 – 20, Bondi Beach, 9280 0808, bowlarama.com.au


Trains tell stories. From a Brief Encounter at a train station to a deadly encounter in Strangers on a Train, trains speak with every whistle and jerk. Everyone has had a train tale to tell so why not capture it in a photograph and stand a chance to win $5000. The Trainspotting photo competition has cool categories like steam, diesel or electric trains, railway infrastructure and people in railway and tram environments. Professionals may not agree but the competition second year in running is also adding a mobile phone category. So go on, make that peak hour morning more than a mad rush to work, snap the moment and tell your story.

Entries close 5pm, 26 Nov.Powerhouse Museum. 500 Harris St, Ultimo. 9217 0111, powerhousemuseum.com/photocompetition
