Sydney Holidays

Sydney skyline

Sydney is the oldest and largest city of its kind in Australia – but there’s so much to this lively metropolis beyond that accolade. In fact, Sydney is the Australia from the movies: think tanned bodies strolling the waterfront or lazing on Bondi, and the Harbour glistening in the sunshine. Its sunny weather and equally sunny lifestyle act as a magnet for tourists, locals and celebrities alike, all of whom love it for its mishmash of city, beach and culture in one. All the postcard-perfect icons are here – the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Harbour and the Sydney Opera House – and if it doesn't charm you with its infinite charisma and thriving foodie scene, it'll easily seduce you with its beauty.

When to Go to Sydney

Sydney is all about fun and adventure – whatever the season! It’s one of the reasons that this year-round destination is often voted one of the ‘world’s most liveable cities’. Visit in the summer (Dec-Feb) for blissfully hot temperatures – perfect for the beach, coastal walks and, of course, an unbeatable New Year's Eve – and the start of spring (end of May-June) for Vivid Sydney. For fewer crowds, opt for the shoulder seasons: September through November and March to May. This is when the temperatures are a bit cooler, the tourist numbers dwindle and the hotels and flights are more affordable.
