Summer in Sydney

Feel the Sydney side of summer

A certain kind of magic fills the air in Sydney during summer. We lose track of time, spending golden days lazing on the beach and long, balmy nights enjoying the city’s hottest restaurants, bars and festivities. Make this summer your best one yet: rewild yourself in the city’s backyard, find the best Sydney stays where you can bring your pooch, see the sky light up on New Year’s Eve, and discover new Christmas markets.   

Sizzling summer events

Show us your festive side this summer. Be swept away by a performance of a lifetime. Watch a blockbuster sporting event that will leave you on the edge of your seat. Find yourself drawn into the city’s stories at an exhibition that will open your heart and mind. And when the sun goes down, stay out late – there are laneways to explore, live music to sing along to and festive Christmas markets to explore.

Fun for the family

Show the kids a new side to Sydney this summer. The longest school holidays of the year give the kids up to six weeks off – plenty of time to discover all the best family-friendly things to do. Splash around at beautiful beaches, get up close to native animals, check out the latest fun (and educational) exhibitions and taste fresh, local produce at a weekend market.
