Great weather might sound like a small thing, but it makes the difference between a fantastic vacation and one that’ s just kind of…. meh. Sydney ’ s weather is spectacular at best, pleasant at moderate, with four seasons that kind of lazily give way to each other at worst. Enjoy generous lengthy summers, mild winters and sunny days.

3. Gorgeous Cityscape
