Sydney is located on the east coast of Australia and is the capital city of New South Wales. One of the world's most famous cities, Sydney combines a vibrant urban atmosphere with the laidback beach life that Australia is known for.

In the southern hemisphere, the seasons in Sydney are reversed. Unlike the northern hemisphere where summer is just beginning, June marks the beginning of winter in Sydney. This means that the temperatures are cooler and the chances of rain are increased, as compared to preceding months. However, with a subtropical climate, Sydney is a city that enjoys pleasant weather all through the year, so don't expect freezing conditions just because it is winter. This makes Sydney one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world.

In the month of June, the average daytime temperatures are generally around 14°C in the city while the average high temperature can reach 18°C on the warmest days. Sydney never gets too cold, even in the winter. Average minimum temperatures generally tend to be around 10°C.

Australia is known for its abundance of sunshine and Sydney is no exception. The sun still shines in winter, with an average of 7 hours of sunshine per day in June and a 29% chance of a sunny day. This means you can hit the beaches of Sydney and top up your tan all year round. While you're at the beach, why not take a dip in the sea? The waters around the coast of Sydney are still warm enough to swim or surf at this time of year, with an average sea temperature of 19°C.

Although the weather in Sydney is fair in June, the chance of rain is fairly high during this month. The average amount of precipitation for this month is around 140 mm and you expect rain for 11 days throughout the month. This equates to a 45% chance of a rainy day.

Things to do

Sydney is a vibrant city with a huge amount of attractions to entertain all those who visit, so spending time exploring the city and the many different sights it has to offer is well worth it. Doing it outside of the hottest months will also make it much more bearable and comfortable for you, especially if you are not used to the hot climate. 

See a more natural side of Sydney by taking a trip the Blue Mountains, which are just two hours by train from the city. Guided tours will give you an introduction to the area and tell you more about the flora and fauna. In the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden you can see the famous dinosaur tree, or Wollemi pine, which dates back 90 million years.

If you want to experience some culture whilst you are in Sydney, June is the month of the Sydney Film Festival. Showcasing a number of different films from across the world, the festival goes on for two weeks, giving you plenty of time to catch it if you are in Sydney during this time.

As well as this, the Sydney Manly Food and Wine Festival also takes place in early June. This festival features various stalls where visitors can sample a number of different cuisines and wine. It's a perfect time to get a true taste of Sydney.

Hit the beach

If you're planning a trip to Sydney, you may have heard of Bondi Beach and Manly Beach, the most famous beaches in the city. However, Sydney has many more beautiful bays and secluded spots to offer. For a more peaceful day at the beach, pack up a picnic and head to Milk Beach in Vaucluse. Located within the Sydney Harbour National Park, next to the heritage-listed Strickland House, Milk Beach is a small but spectacular suburban beach that visitors can reach by car or public transport. Milk beach is a beautiful golden sand cove with plenty to see and do, including fishing and snorkelling, but one of the best things about this beach is the breath-taking views of downtown Sydney you can enjoy from the shore.

Eating and drinking

Sydney is a haven for food lovers, with a huge selection of restaurants and eateries serving every type of cuisine you could imagine. For a typical taste of Australian cuisine, look no further than the Searock Grill in Circular Quay. Along with breath-taking views over the harbour, guests here can enjoy a menu of contemporary Australian dishes, from fresh, local seafood including whole lobster and crab to kangaroo steaks!

Pizza lovers are recommended to head to Pizza Boccone in Potts Point for one of the best slices in the city. This Italian style trattoria makes its pizza in a traditional wood-fired oven and also serves a range of delicious homemade pasta dishes, which guests can enjoy al fresco on the outdoor patio.

After dinner, you will find one of the best selections of beers at The Lord Nelson Brewery. Located in the historic Rocks area of the city, this is the oldest continuously-licensed pub in Sydney and is a popular evening venue. Order an old favourite or try one of their unique craft brews.
