What is Harbour City Bears?

Harbour City Bears is Sydney’s only community group for bears – hairy gay men – our admirers and friends. We hold over 140 events each year – with weekly socials, quarterly dance parties, regular dinners and other outings through the year culminating in our two annual festivals, Bear Essentials & Bear Pride. Currently we have over some 1200 members making us the largest Bear association in Australia and the Southern Hemisphere!

  • Two annual festivals – Bear Essentials during Mardi Gras, and Bear Pride in the cooler months, are Australia's Premier Gay Bear Community Festivals and attract visitors from interstate and overseas to join and celebrate with Sydney’s vibrant bear culture.
  • Dance parties including quarterly Bear Pit and the iconic UnderBEAR during Mardi Gras.
  • Socials every Friday night at The Oxford Hotel in Darlinghurst and Sunday afternoon at The Town Hall Hotel (The Townie) in Newtown.
  • Press Paws is our monthly gayming event. Nintendo Swith tournaments for prizes. Come and play or just watch!

  • Community health & well-being events
  • Fundraising for community charities

The proceeds from our events and fundraising are all invested back into the club, or donated to the community charities that we support.
