It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Sydney

Peak Season: late-December to early-February

Seventy-degree weather and a rich program of outdoor celebrations and beach events, including the three-week Sydney Festival in January, draw crowds. Book at least three months in advance.

Off-Season: May to August

Since Sydney is in the Southern Hemisphere, these months are actually in the dead of winter. Still, the weather is mild, if not pleasant (average temperature: 56°F). Hotel bargains are the most likely in June.

Sweet Spot: late-September to early-December; late-February to April

With its temperate subtropical climate Sydney is popular practically year-round, but these months see slightly fewer visitors than high season. Temperatures average in the mid-60s.
