When is the best time to visit Sydney? Many people would suggest Summertime, but we think Early Autumn gives visitors the very best there is to offer in Sydney with slightly cooler, less humid days with the odd picture-perfect beach day thrown in for good measure.
The pace of life in Sydney during Autumn slows down considerably and while the days are still long, the evenings are cooler and it’s easier to spend more time outside enjoying everything Sydney has to offer.
Early Autumn allows you to enjoy the lifestyle that Sydney is famous for, and we think the best way to experience Sydney is a walking tour.
A guided tour on foot is a wonderful way to learn about the rich and varied history of the city, as well as explore all the wonderful places that the locals like to keep on the down-low! The Rocks Walking Tours is the oldest continuously running tour company with over 40 years experiencing in guiding locals and visitors alike through the winding cobblestone alleys of The Rocks. Their 90 minute tours are run twice daily by their team of highly knowledgable and genuine guides. Contact them to book or to arrange a customised private tour to suit your needs.
The Rocks on St Patrick’s Day is the only place to be where we paint the town GREEN in some of Sydney’s oldest and best Irish Pubs. Guinness on tap, live folk music, Irish dancing and traditional hearty food awaits you whether you choose to start the celebrations at breakfast time or (a more civilised!) pint after work. Check out what’s on and enjoy the craic!
If you’re visiting in March or April, be sure to check out Sydney Symphony’s program and watch one of their scheduled performances, along with traditional classical programs, you could also catch Paloma Faith’s debut SSO performance and Harry Potter fans can relieve the magic of The Prisoner of Azkaban shown onscreen while the Sydney Symphony orchestra perform in concert, and all shown at the iconic Opera House – could there be a better way to enjoy this beautiful city?
Easter time in Sydney is usually crisp and fresh and if you’re in the city over the Easter weekend, bring the kids down to the Botanic Gardens for the Great Garden Egg Hunt! You can explore the beauty of the Botanic Gardens with the kids as they complete 5 activities & challenges on the bunny trail. Easter eggs will be provided and the Easter Bunny will also be available for a cute family pic! Bookings essential.
For an extra special night out you must try the Wagyu Deluxe set menu with seven courses of Wagyu beef at our very own Shiki Japanese Restaurant. Bookings recommended.
Or for a more casual experience, grab some picnic supplies from Ezymart who are open 24hrs/7days for your convenience or grab something delicious to takeaway from Danieli Fine Foods and hit the streets of The Rocks for an adventure or two!
We hope to see you soon at Clocktower the Rocks..
