Sydney Australia Weather

"Find Out When Sydney Australia Weather is at its best!"

Whatever time of year you choose to visit Sydney, there is always something to do.

But if you are ideal trip to Sydney means sitting on a beach, then you are best to come during the summer months of December, January and February.

This time of year however is very hot (late 20's to early 30's) and can be rather unpredictable. Many visitors are amazed at the amount of rain Sydney actually gets. You could be unlucky and get a solid week of rain!

January is particularly hot and very busy. This is because of the long school summer holidays from mid December until the end of January. Unless you are planning to be here for the fireworks at New Year (a must do,) I would recommend NOT to come in January.

When is the best time to visit Sydney?

The best time of year is in Spring or Autumn -

I would recommend late October, November and March as good times to come. The weather is slightly cooler. There is still more chance of rain at these times though.

Personally I wouldn't bank on the weather. Ensure your trip to Australia includes some time in Queensland or on the West Coast near Perth if you are looking for no rain (not far north Queensland as this has a long rainy season)

That said, you are guaranteed lots of sunshine and hot days.

Can You Visit In Winter?

Winter in Sydney is not like it is in the rest of the world.

Temperatures fall to about 15 degrees so there is never any snow in Sydney! Houses, apartments and restaurants are insulated for the summer months and don't come with central heating.

That means that winter here in Sydney can feel really cold. Make sure you bring an umbrella and a light coat if you intend to come at this time of year. You won't be able to sit on a beach but you will be able to enjoy stunning coastal walks along the cliffs and much more.
