Australia is famous for its great weather with a wide range of climates. From winter skiing in the Australian Alps between June and September, to year round beach holidays in Queensland.
Sydney's climate is in its favour – the warmest months of December to February have an average maximum temperature of 25ºC. Being close to the ocean, hot days are often tempered by cooling sea breezes and evening temperatures are balmy - perfect for relaxed outdoor dining. June to August are the coolest months, with daytime temperatures rarely falling below 10ºC. Even on mid-winter days, with their bright blue, wide-open skies, an overcoat is usually not necessary in Sydney.
