8) Spend All Day In The Museums
No matter how interesting a museum might be, during summertime, the beach will always be the most crowded spot.
When winter rolls around though it’s time to head out to those interesting exhibits you’ve been meaning to catch all year.
Sydney has a very rich and intricate cultural scene, and that results in lots of museums and galleries continually updating their collections, or hosting international exhibitions.
Even Sydneysiders keep coming back again and again to catch something new!
Visiting Sydney in winter is an ideal opportunity to take a peek inside one of these fascinating world-renowned museums.
Lethal animals, buried treasures, mummified corpses and hot rocks are just some of the things you can encounter in some of the museums, while the art galleries take it up another notch altogether.
You definitely won’t be bored in one of the many Sydney museums!
9) Check Out A Football Match
When visiting Australia in the winter, become a local by catching a rugby or football match, and with no shortage of games in Sydney throughout the sporting season.
Rugby isn’t just a sport here in Australia, it’s a religion, so even if you’re not quite sure how the game is played; don’t worry, pick a team, cheer your lungs out and soak up the atmosphere.
There are three types of football codes worshipped in Australia – rugby league, rugby union and Aussie rules (soccer is also played and becoming more popular).
You might get the chance to catch the Sydney Swans play at the SCG, which is an amazing experience, or if your timing isn’t so lucky you can always catch one of the local rugby league teams play in the NRL.
Those that land in Sydney at just the right time might even get to see the national rugby union team, the Australian Wallabies, play against their arch-rivals, the New Zealand All Blacks.
Tickets for the big games sell out fast, so do your research before visiting Sydney or you might be stuck buying tickets from scalpers on the day
10) Grab A Surfboard and Ride The Huge Winter Swell
While most people spend the winter in woollen socks and lumpy jackets, the keen surfers know that the winter season is one of the best times to get out into the water.
Winter storms create bigger and more consistent swells, which routinely hit the east coast of Australia, perfect for surf lovers.
Another perk of surfing in Sydney in the winter is the number of surfers is a lot less, and it tends to only be the more experienced people out in the water.
Obviously you will need to withstand very low temperatures, but that’s nothing a good wetsuit can’t solve.
The cold aside, there’s no better time to enjoy the best surfing conditions in Sydney.
