Sydney in summer
Summer’s a great time of the year to holiday in Sydney. All the colours of the city are on display – a sparkling blue harbour, golden beaches, green parks and gardens. Sydney really gears up for a spectacular season of events and celebrations with plenty of festivals, world-championship sporting events, arts, culture, entertainment and more!
Get out and about in the great outdoors and experience Sydney’s stunning natural attractions. Go cycling and enjoy the sunshine, the green open spaces and golden sand beaches. Follow a walking trail passing through harbourside bushland, picnic by Sydney Harbour National Park or jog along the promenade at Bondi Beach.
From beachside and suburban markets, to historic city-centre arcades, boutiques in laneways and hideaway warehouses, Sydney offers a treasure trove of eclectic, stylish and unique shopping hotspots. Get your shop on as Sydney’s CBD, Bondi, Paddington, Surry Hills, Darlinghurst, Manly, Mosman and Newtown.
Sydney’s arts and cultural scene is diverse, engaging and great value. The city is a stage for local and international talent with art and performances around every corner. Go behind the scenes at some of Sydney’s major art and cultural institutions such as the Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney Theatre Company and the Australian Museum.
