    Best Time to Visit

    October, when the beaches are warm and personal space is less at a premium.

    What to Pack

    An umbrella – for rain, sun, and random drop bear attacks.

    General Tips

    Sydney boasts Australia’s oldest natural history museum, which for a young nation, dates back to an impressive 1857. It’s simply titled The Australian Museum, and is one of the must sees along with the Museum of Sydney that traces the history of the city itself.

    More recently, the Museum of Contemporary Art (1991) opened up, along with the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the smaller Surry Hills, Paddington, Woollaha and Waterloo galleries, ensuring the art and culture market of Sydney remains vibrant and growing. To really see what the city has to offer, be sure to visit during Vivid Sydney when the streets light up, or for Sydney Contemporary, the Fall art fair.
