Spring is a comfortable time of year in Sydney, with average temperatures around 22°C, meaning it?s warm enough to get out on the beach and learn to surf, windsurf, or go on aharbor cruise, while also being cool enough to enjoy a good walking tour of the city to check out its many sights.
In summer, the city gets hot, and you?ll be glad that Sydney has more than 70 beaches for you to cool off at. The summer is also full of arts, music and culture festivals, so there?s never a dull moment. The Sydney Festival takes place throughout the month of January, and brings some of the world?s best performers to the city.
In fall, temperatures cool down a bit, similar to the spring, but you can enjoy the beach pretty much year-round. Aussie Rules Footballseason starts in fall, so check out this unique contact sport that was invented in this country.

Winter in Sydney is a little bit cooler, but never cold, so you can continue to enjoy all of the usual activities available. For something a little different, you could check out the Sydney Winter Festival where you can go ice skating and enjoy mulled wine at Bondi Beach while the surfers walk by in their shorts.
