There's no place like Sydney ...
Love the weather
Under Sydney’s sunny skies, you can enjoy being outside almost any day of the year. The climate is warm, with the coldest months (June and July) averaging a maximum of 17°C. January and February are the hottest, with an average maximum of 26°C, though summer days can sometimes reach 40°C.
Explore the great outdoors
To the east, you’ll find over seventy postcard-worthy beaches. To the west, the breathtaking Blue Mountains. You can explore pristine national parks, escape to the famous vineyards of the Hunter Valley, or take a road trip to the Snowy Mountains with Sydney as your vantage point.
You’ll eat well in Sydney. Foodies are spoiled for choice, with an assortment of restaurants and cafés serving up Indian, Thai, Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Spanish, and Vietnamese cuisines, just to name a few. Our small bar scene is also booming, with plenty of intimate drinking spots — some hidden, others with international recognition.
Sydney offers everything from bustling malls to market stalls, and you can find tucked-away boutiques, top artisans and designer brands to add to your itinerary on Sydney.com’s fashion and shopping page.
