Here are some of them:
Come spring, the city is home to the "Art and About Sydney". It is a festival that has been going on for some years now.
It includes art, installations, music, performances, photography, and tours that help you discover hidden treasures of the city.
The festival is a creative event that brings to life interesting and surprising projects and engages artists with their followers.
One of these events was the Sydney Statues project 2010.
From September 23 to October 24, 2010, eight statues in the City had a new look. They were all making a fashion statement, dressed up in vivid colours. Four of these statues were:
Captain Cook's mantle is a reminder of his life on the seas. It shows the Endeavour, the ship he was in command of, when he discovered Australia in 1770.
All the clothing is inspired by his expeditions and voyages around the Pacific.
Queen Victoria's outfit displays Australian native plants and wildflowers. She wears a waratah on her head. The flower is the floral emblem of New South Wales.
Prince Albert, Victoria's husband, whose statue is just across that of the Queen, wears a cape with hearts. It symbolises the romantic relation between the two royals.
Il Porcellino is a copy of a famous statue in Florence. Just like there, passers-by stop to rub its nose, hoping for some good fortune.
For the duration of the festival, the boar has received a pair of wings to attract more fortune to those who drop a couple of coins.
A huge installation of recycled bikes that are shaped to look like the 19th century high-wheel bicycle prompts our thinking about the way we are using transport, questioning whether it is sustainable for the future.
They look at you from banner poles on the main streets in the City.
