Finding the perfect Sydney accommodation can go a long way towards making sure that visitors have an outstanding trip. Sydney is an amazing metropolitan city in Australia and offers visitors so much to see and do. Travelers who are looking to maximize their time in the city should plan on staying in a neighborhood that best suits their needs. If visitors wish to spend a lot of time at the beach, a stay near the water is a better fit than staying in an area that’s further inland. Fortunately, Sydney has a variety of neighborhoods to choose from, so travelers can decide which one suits them best or move around during their trip to enjoy everything the city has to offer.

Travelers may wish to consider which season would be best for them for a visit. High season in Sydney is when the weather is the warmest, and happens between December and February, while the low season is between May and August. Sydney is fairly temperate, with summer highs around 25 degrees Celsius, and summer lows around 19 degrees Celsius. In the low season, the highs are around 17 degrees Celsius, and the lows are around 9 degrees Celsius. So, no matter whether travelers are visiting during the high season in the summer, or during the low season in the winter, the temperature should be relatively comfortable.

  • For travelers who are looking to minimize costs, a trip to Sydney during the low season should end up saving them some money on accommodations. However, travelers will have to compromise with weather that isn’t as nice as it is during high season. The average price for double occupancy in Sydney is around 240 AUD per night. While the average price (weekend night) will depend on the type of hotel and time of year, visitors can save some money by planning their trips for midweek dates or during the low season. The average price (weeknight) will also increase depending on demand, and it can reasonably be expected that weeknight bookings are going to be less expensive than the weekend, as travelers won’t be competing with locals who decide to take weekend excursions to the city.
