For me Sydney Australia was THE bucket list destination. A family friend had climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge and as a kid I thought it was the coolest thing ever! I knew I had to do it too! Well what I thought was going to be a ‘once in a lifetime’ trip, has since turned into THREE trips to Australia and I still get excited every time I see Sydney Harbour! On my last visit, it rained nearly EVERY day I was in Sydney, so I’ve come up with 2 different Sydney Itineraries, a 3 day itinerary for sunny weather and one for rainy day activities!
I’ve been to Australia 3 times now and ironically have never been there in summer. First time was spring, then autumn and most recently, winter! I actually think winter is a great time of year to visit Australia. For me working in a school in the Northern Hemisphere, it also just so happens to coincide with when I get all of my time off! Here are a few reasons as to why winter is the best time to visit Australia and a few tips to get the most from your visit!
Staying in a Japanese style capsule hotel had been on my bucket list for a while. I then read somewhere that a lot of the ones in Japan are ‘male only’, so I wouldn’t be welcome anyway! HOWEVER in May 2017, Australia’s very first Capsule Hotel opened in Sydney and during my 2018 trip, I booked in for 4 nights!
