Sydney's weather is influenced by the East Australian Current, which is at its strongest in Sydney's summer - between December and March. During this time of year, warmth from tropical North Queensland travels down to Sydney, and water temperatures average at around 22°C - perfect for swimming. Summer in Sydney often brings temperatures upwards of 30°C, and sees the city and it's beaches host a large number of festivals, including Mardi Gras, Tropfest and the Sydney Harbour Party. If you are looking for a holiday brimming with sandy beaches, exhilarating water-sports and enormous parties, then this is the ideal time of year for your visit.

One-third of Sydney's population were born overseas, and the city's range of cuisine reflects this diversity of culture.
