The best time to visit Sydney really depends on what you want to see, do, experience. Overall though it's best to go during their summer from December util February.
The most well known tourist attraction and Sydney's iconic international symbol, the Opera house has a prime location overlooking Sydney Harbour.
The UNESCO listed building was opened in 1973 and, apart from attending one of the many and varied performances, you can also take a backstage tour for a real in site of how productions are staged.
The harbour bridge was opened in March 1932 and now links the city with North Sydney. One of the most exciting ways to experience the bridge is to take part in a bridge climb. All the necessary equipment and safety outdoor clothing is provided and, when you reach the top, the views over Sydney are awe-inspiring. Unfortunately, for safety reasons, you are not allowed to carry any loose items like cameras and mobile phones with you, but the climb leaders will capture photos during your climb.
The oldest public parkland in Australia. Situated in the heart of Sydney, Hyde Park is a fantastic oasis with wide open spaces and is the ideal place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the urban conurbation. There are plenty of places for an adhoc picnic or just to relax in the sun.
