Climate of New South Wales & Sydney


Australia is situated in the Southern Hemisphere. This means that the seasons in Australia are quite the opposite to those found in Europe and North America. Hereís a quick rundown of the seasons in Australia.

  • Summer is from December to February
  • Autumn is from March to May
  • Winter is from June to August, and finally,
  • Spring is from September to November.


  • New South Wales is seven times bigger than Great Britain and two times larger than California. Naturally, with an area of some 800 642km the climate is varied around the state. With a state as big as New South Wales, the climate varies significantly. The good news for travellers is thereís a climate that will suit everyone to be found in New South Wales

    In the north, subtropical temperatures are experienced in the north and along sections of the coast. Dry desert like climate (very hot days and very cold nights)is present in the far west of the state and down in the Southern Alps, snowfalls occur during the winter months.

    The average weather of the north coast area is temperate and locals enjoy slightly humid weather during the summer months, but mild to cool winters.

    To the south of Sydney, and west of the Great Dividing Range, the climate is usually hot in the summer and cool in the winter. A benefit of this climate is that locals experience well defined seasons. It is in this part of New South Wales that you will delight in the Autumn colours and the Spring blossoms. Frosts are not uncommon in these areas.

    Sydney Weather

    Sydney is a very large city covering some 4000 square kilometres (2,486 square miles). The weather during the warmer months can vary considerably from the coastal suburbs to the western suburbs.

    Luckily, Sydney seasiderís enjoy sea breezes that tend to keep the heat down, but to the west the temperature doesnít get the benefit of the sea breezes and can as such the Western suburbs can be much hotter.

    Sydney Climate in a Snapshot

    Summers are generally hot and sunny in Sydney.

    The average daily maximum temperature is around 23-28 degrees Celcius (73-82 degrees Farenheit) on the coast and around 27 to 32 degrees Celsius (80-89 degrees Farenheit) inland.

    The average daily minimum temperature is usually in the high teens.

    Winters are generally mild in Sydney.

    The average daily maximum temperature is around 17 degrees Celcius(62 degrees Farenheit)

    The average daily minimum temperature is around 8 degrees Celcuis(46 degrees Farenheit
