Destination Guide - Sydney
Sydney is one seriously shiny city – the sun illuminates the busy skyline while bronzed Aussies reflect the ubiquitous beach culture. See the harbour sights while lazing on a ferry or get physical and walk some of the historic suburbs such as Surry Hills and Paddington. If you like your history served with a side of shopping, check out the elegant Strand Arcade and QVB in the CBD – exploring the heritage architecture while weaving in and out of boutiques almost makes a spending spree culturally justifiable. If you’re feeling adventurous climb to the top of the Harbour Bridge and see Sydney in all of its radiance from above.
In winter (June to August) the average temperature is cool approximately 15-17°C but rarely freezing cold. In summer (December to February) the temperature undulates between approximately 25°C and 40°C.
