  • if being delivered online, the content must be available to everyone within the area covered by What's On (for example, no geoblocking should be applied)See a list of suburbs represented by What’s On

  • be in the interests of public health and safety
  • not be part of professional development or qualification coursework
  • not be a political party fundraiser
  • not be a sales promotion or special offer
  • must be an event listing with specific time and dates and not a general advertisement for a business or ongoing service or product

  • any events providing personal financial advice can only be delivered by people with a Australian financial services (AFS) licence. Information about their accreditation must be included in the event description and they must appear on this Financial Services Register

We want your What’s On event listing to reach the widest audience possible.

  • Our team carefully reviews events when they’re received, making sure we continue to deliver a high quality site.
  • Listings will be edited for style and length.
  • If your listing is sent back to you with a request for amendments, and you choose to resubmit without making the requested changes, our team may refuse to publish your event.

Following our guidelines means your event can be published sooner. Visit our help centre for guidance on images, venues, dates and more.

Events are published at the City of Sydney’s discretion. Publication of an event isn’t an endorsement.
