Averages for Sydney in April

Weather lowdown

Sydney is a dream holiday destination for many travellers. Located on the east coast of Australia, in New South Wales, Sydney is a large and vibrant city with world-famous attractions, beautiful scenery and, one of its biggest draws, amazing weather. The city has a subtropical climate, with sunshine and pleasant temperatures all year round.

Located in the southern hemisphere, April is the middle of autumn in Sydney, so visitors can expect lovely, warm weather that is not as hot as the sizzling summer months. Many tourists visit the area at this time of year because the weather is often considered the best of the year. Unlike the inland areas of Australia, Sydney benefits from sea breezes which keep temperatures down. In April, the average daytime temperatures in Sydney are generally around 19°C while high temperatures can reach a lovely 23°C. Nights are cooler but the average minimum temperatures hardly ever drop below 15°C.

The sun continues to shine throughout April, bringing 8 sunny hours every day throughout the month and a 28% chance of a sunny day. With an abundance of sunshine, tourists can relax and top up their tan on the beautiful beaches located in Sydney. While you’re at the beach, if you want to go for a swim in the sea (or maybe learn to ride the waves) the sea is more than warm enough. The average sea temperature of the Pacific around the coast of Sydney in April is 22°C.

The famous Sydney Opera House

Rainfall is spread evenly throughout the year, however, April sees a little more than some months. The average monthly precipitation for April is around 133 mm with a 46% chance of rain. You can expect to see rain for about 11 days throughout the month, though much of this will be light drizzle or showers that pass quickly.

Where to stay

As one of the largest cities in Australia, Sydney has accommodation to suit every need. Located in the historic Rocks area of the city, the Quay West Suites Sydney Hotel won the Traveller’s Choice Awards in 2015. The five-star high-rise hotel offers guests upscale apartments equipped with kitchens, a laundry room and flat-screen TVs for a convenient stay in Sydney. Other facilities include a spa, sauna and an outdoor terrace where visitors can enjoy the great weather.

QT Sydney is a boutique hotel for the style-conscious traveller located in the Central Business District. The rooms here are decorated in a chic and slightly quirky way, with unique décor and luxurious en-suite bathrooms. If guests can tear themselves away from the beautiful rooms, the hotel has a bar and grill serving contemporary Australian dishes, as well as a lounge bar and coffee shop on site.

Things to do

Autumn in Sydney is a perfect time to explore the city and its many historical tourist attractions. The pleasant weather means it is more comfortable to be outdoors and walk around the city than it is during the summer months, when the heat is at its peak.

The Botanic Gardens, Sydney

One of the most famous attractions in Sydney is the Botanic Gardens. Located in the heart of the city, the gardens are an oasis of breath-taking natural beauty where you can relax and learn about the many plants on display. The Botanic Gardens are just a short walk from the Opera House and can be combined for a memorable day in Sydney.

The Sydney Royal Easter Show is held in the month of April in the city. This event is an agricultural show that was designed to promote local produce and livestock and features a wide variety of entertainments and exhibitions including an amusement park and fair, restaurants, shopping stands and competitions.

In mid-April Sydney is also host to the Sydney Cup, one of the most popular and long-running horse races in Australia. The Sydney Cup is held at the Randwick racecourse in the suburbs of Sydney.

Hit the beach

With sunshine and warm temperatures, April is a perfect time to get away from the city and hit the beach for some relaxation. One of Australia’s most famous beaches, Bondi Beach, is located in Sydney and is easy to reach by bus from the centre of the city. Bondi Beach is a wide, 1km long stretch of soft, golden sand and is visited by thousands of tourists every year. It can get busy, but it is worth a trip there to see the breathtakingly beautiful beach and bright blue sea in person.

Surfing in Sydney

Bondi Beach is also a paradise for surfers. The shallow, protected waters are a perfect place to learn to surf and there are a number of surf schools on the beach that will teach you how. After a busy day surfing and soaking up the sun, visitors can grab a bite to eat at one of the many great cafés or restaurants that line the beach.

Eating and drinking

Sydney is a world-class destination for dining, with a diverse selection of restaurants and bars to suit every taste and budget. You’ll find some of the most renowned restaurant in the heart of the city, such as Rockpool, located in the Central Business District. This fine dining establishment serves modern Australian cuisine by acclaimed chef Neil Perry, which guests can enjoy inside a grand, columned dining room.

Of course, you don’t have to head to a restaurant for great food. Some of the best dishes in the city can be found at one of the many food trucks that are located on the streets of Sydney – perfect for al fresco dining when the sun is shining. One of the most popular is Eat Art Truck which combines delicious pulled pork and brisket buns with local street art, using their van as an ever-changing canvas. Another food truck not to miss is Veggie Patch Van, a treat for the taste buds whether you’re vegetarian or not. Dishes such as falafel burgers and pumpkin pesto salad are made with fresh local produce.
