Stuck for the best things to see, hear, do and read ? Noelle Faulkner rounds up her edit of the best diary dates of the month

We're all guilty of it - freaking ourselves into doing all of the things because we can hear the final death rattle of summer  choking out there in the distance. Well, lucky February has events, festivals and celebrations in spades. From barbecue festivals with a rock 'n' roll soundtrack to Chinese New Year parades, The Oscars (and the films nominated/snubbed),  The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras kick-off, educational talks and tours, and a special shout out to Perth Arts Festival, which I could have included something exciting from that here every day. Hopefully you'll find at least one thing on this daily edit to whet your appetite for culture this month.
