You'll Love Every Second in Sydney this Summer
Webjet's Destination Guides
Summer’s a great time of the year to holiday in Sydney. All the colours of the city are on display – a sparkling blue harbour, golden beaches, green parks and gardens. The city’s in a playful mood with plenty to celebrate and plenty of ways to have fun day and night. Take your time over a lazy lunch by the beach or cocktails by the harbour, make shopping fun again or chill out at one of the new shows in town.
Sydney has outstanding natural assets – national parks, botanic gardens, pristine waterways and stunning beaches all within an arms-reach of the city centre. In summer nothing comes between Sydney and the big blue sky – and there’s no end of ways to join in the non-stop open air action. The city’s accessibility to the beach, the sheer beauty of Sydney Harbour and the green parklands make the bright days and balmy nights the perfect excuse to get outdoors.
Dining, Food and Wine
Sydney’s dining scene is a fusion of flavours, cultures, fresh produce and breathtaking scenery. Diners are spoilt for choice with award-winning waterfront restaurants, stunning views, an abundance of local, fresh produce and a breed of young, dynamic chefs.
Fashion and Sydney Summer Style
With its sexy attitude and edgy creativity, there’s no better place than Sydney to discover the nation’s next fashion star or be wowed by some of the industry’s biggest names. From beachside and suburban markets and historic city centre arcades, to secret laneways and hideaway warehouses, Sydney offers a treasure trove of eclectic, stylish and unique designs.
Arts and Culture
Sydney’s arts and cultural scene is as diverse as the city itself, combining big budget, big-name events with a thriving underground creative hotbed. The city is a stage for local and international, established and emerging talent and the outdoors is an increasingly exciting canvas, with art around every corner. Street parties, pop-up installations, live performances and a new era in contemporary art are just some of the highlights of the vibrant array of arts festivals, events, productions and exhibitions that Sydney will host in the coming months.

A summer cultural highlight includes two exclusive exhibitions as part of the Sydney International Art Series.

If you love a big night, Sydney’s the place to combine entertainment and dining.
