Visiting Sydney is a great idea.
Visiting Sydney to live and study, is on many people’s bucket list. When people think of Sydney, they think of sun and beaches, koalas and kangaroos, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House But here are some other reasons to travel to Sydney any time of the year.
The weather is fantastic.
Sydney is known for its amazing Summer weather but our little secret is that Winter is fantastic too. Yes, it is a little cold between June and August but compared to the Northern Hemisphere Sydney’s Winter is still warm. People are swimming and surfing at Sydney’s famous beaches all year round. If you enjoy a warm and sunny environment, then visiting Sydney is for you.

Australian’s love sport and there is plenty to see in Sydney. Even if you don’t go for either of the teams that are playing, Sydneysiders will still watch the game for a good time. Eating, drinking and catching up with friends are pivotal to the Australian lifestyle and sporting events gives us a great excuse to have fun and cheer. Watch sport live at the ground or grab some friends and watch it on the TV.

Venture out to see the animals.
Australia is famous for animals that can not be found anywhere else in the world. No matter what the weather, Sydney’s zoos and animal parks are worth a visit. You can get up close to koalas, kangaroos, native Australian birds and even saltwater crocodiles. We have a couple of parks specialising in snakes and spiders if you are brave. If you like going out onto the water, a boat will take you whale watching to see the majestic beasts migrating north to warmer waters. If you are lucky enough to see one, you will never forget it.
Other things to choose from.
Do you like Art Galleries? We have some of the finest, featuring world class exhibitions. The Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) are right in the middle of the city.
Do you like beaches? Sydney technically has over 100 beaches. Some are as small as the front of a few houses, right up to beaches that fit thousands of people. Swimming, surfing or relaxing, you are sure to find a beach that suits your needs.
