Sydney in the Spring – Fun Things to Do

The warm weather in Sydney is back. Although it does not get too cold , I am always pleased when spring time arrives as the city becomes move alive and there are so many things to see and do.

Fireworks

Every Saturday night in September and October, there are fireworks taking place at Darling Harbour.  The best part is that it is free and there are not half as many crowds as there are on New Year’s Eve.

Bondi

Bondi is part of the “eastern suburbs” and is a short train ride away from Central station. It used to be a cheap part of town, but in the last 20 years, rent has soared and houses for sale are way above the national average. The price tag of the houses does not need to stop you from enjoying this beautiful part of town. Many people visit Bondi to follow the Bondi to Coogee walk. This is a 6km walk from Bondi along to cliffs and finishes at Coogee beach.

Another great attraction is Sculptures By The Sea which takes place every October in Sydney. The sculptures are located along the Bondi to Coogee walk. I wrote about a few more attractions to see in Bondi here.

Food

For those who love food, you are in for a treat. Every October, Good Food Month arrives in Sydney and from the 6th to the 23rd, the Night Noodle Markets are out in Hyde Park. With the warm weather, you could come every night and eat under the stars without needing a sweater.

Brunch has become very popular in Australia and it is very common to go out for brunch on the weekends and there are even places that offer this during the week. I wrote a blog post when I was living in Sydney about just some of the brunch spots in Surry Hills.

Beaches

Sydney is a city with many beautiful beaches. I wrote a post about just some of the beaches you should visit when you are in Sydney. The sun is a very strong in Australia and there is a lot of promotion about staying sun safe. Many people go to the beach early in the morning to make the most of the weather before sun is at its strongest. Some people join volleyball meetups which is a great place to meet others. I never took this up in Sydney, but I have started volleyball in Barcelona. There are many surf schools at the beach and for those confident swimmers and keen to be part of the surf club, they can take their Surf Life Saving Certificate.

Pools in Sydney

I love swimming outdoors and when spring is back, the pools re-open. There are many pools in central Sydney which I wrote about in this post. One of my favorite pools is the pool by Central Station as well as the Andrew Boy Charles Pool pool. It is also where I used to do a biathlon every Thursday evening. It was hard work but fun, plus there are prizes to be won and I won a great blender.
