Sydney has a temperate climate with warm summers and mild winters. Surrounded by the sea, temperature conditions aren’t as extreme as they are even just a few miles inland. There is no rainy season, but sudden storms can be common. The hottest months are December to February, during the southern summer. In summer, the temperature can reach the high 30s, and the temperature can go as low as 5 degrees in the winter. October-November is the best time to visit.
