For those that grew up and live in Melbourne, you'll soon develop a love-hate relationship with Sydney. From the various sporting contests to the race to become Australia's largest city, the two urban hubs have a great rivalry.
Of course, for all the similarities between Melbourne and Sydney culture, it is always nice to explore a new city and what it has to offer.
So, what are you waiting for? Leave your vehicle at Pacific Airport Parking and embark on an adventure on foreign soil – or New South Wales – whichever term you prefer. Here are three events in February 2017 that are worth seeing live.
HSBC Sydney 7s (February 4 and 5 2017)
Rugby sevens made its Olympic debut in Rio and certainly was one of the highlights of the Games – fast, tough and exciting Sydney's Moore Park (Allianz Stadium) hosts the fourth leg of the 2016-17 World Rugby Sevens Series in early February and it shapes up to be a competitive affair.

Sydney Chinese New Year Festival (January 27 to February 12 2017)
Sydney has one of the largest Chinese communities in Australia and the annual New Year Festival is something that has to be seen to believed. Over the course of two weeks, there are more than 80 events across the city, featuring everything from giant lunar lanterns to dragon boat races.
Visit the many markets for some tasty Chinese cuisine before enjoying the sights and colour of the traditional entertainment. As a family-friendly festival, the Sydney Chinese New Year Festival offers something for every age group.
Volleyfest Manly Beach (February 25 and 26 2017)
Volleyball is one of Australia's most popular participation sports, according to Roy Morgan Research. As such, if you are keen to improve your skills, you need to be at Manly Beach in late February as the Northern Beaches host Volleyfest.
The international competition welcomes teams from around the world onto the golden Manly shores. If the temperature gets too hot on the beach, you can grab a bite to eat at the nearby restaurants or do a spot of shopping on the famous Corso.
