What to do in Sydney over the Summer
Back to blog homepageDecember 3rd, 2013 | Meriton Apartments
Summer in Sydney means school holidays, Christmas, festivals and lots of sun.
At this time of year, prices are higher than normal, so try to plan and book ahead. The school holidays mean that popular spots such as theme parks, resorts and beaches are likely to be packed with people, according to GoAustralia.
With average daily temperatures of 26°C, you will need to pack accordingly. Even at night, temperatures can be a warm 19°C.
Activities to enjoy in the summer include walking around areas such as the Royal Botanic Gardens, The Rocks, Hyde Park and the iconic Sydney Opera House. The high temperatures can mean an increased risk of bushfires, so be mindful if out walking in the bush and check for warnings before you set out.
It’s also a great time to try beach activities, for example surfing, or just spend time on the beautiful beaches without doing anything. Summer is a prime time for annual events in Sydney. Some of the festivals and events taking place during the summer months include the Sydney Festival, Sydney Fringe Festival and the Great Ferry Race.
