We’ve compiled a top-10 list of Sydney’s most sought-after attractions.
1. Sydney Opera House
Straddling the sparkling waters of Darling Harbour, this iconic sail-shaped theatre is Sydney’s most famous landmark. Take a guided tour of the impressive performing arts centre or grab a happy snap (and a drink) from the adjacent Opera Bar.

The best thing about planning a trip to Sydney is there’s no wrong time to visit.
Sydney winters are mild, with generally pleasant days and cool nights. A refreshing sea breeze keeps the city relatively comfortable in summer, at least in the centre and eastern suburbs. Autumn brings pleasant temperatures and vibrant ochre hues to Sydney’s leafy streets. Our favourite time to visit is spring, which brings blossoming flowers, minimal rain, and warm balmy days.
Spring (September to November)
- Average Temperature: 18-23°C (64-73°F)
- Precipitation: 70-100mm (2.8-3.9 inches) per month
Summer (December to February)
- Average Temperature: 24-27°C (75-81°F)
- Precipitation: 90-120mm (3.5-4.7 inches) per month

What’s the cheapest season?
The most cost-effective season to visit Sydney is winter, thanks to its thinner crowds. Summer lures hordes of tourists, so expect higher hotel and car hire prices across the board. The spring and autumn shoulder seasons offer great value for money and excellent all-around weather.
