Summer in Sydney
Summer in Australia's biggest city smells like wet frangipani (plumeria) trees, feels like a warm harbor sunset, and looks like Sydney surfers in singlets (tank tops) walking barefoot to the beach. Add seafood, ice cream, and all sorts of events, from outdoor film festivals to one of the best New Year's Eve fireworks shows over the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and you've got a summer destination that's tough to beat.

Coffee on Circular Quay

Large arrow left

For a relaxing rainy morning on the harbor, there are many covered restaurants along the outer edges of Circular Quay at which you can sit and soak in the view with a cup of coffee or tea.

As the day progresses, watch the Quay fill with people as the ferries come and go. After your cup of joe, take a nice walk along the outside of the Quay for a great view of the famous Sydney Opera House.
