The last month of summer in Sydney, February, is a good choice for those who like festivals and want to enjoy the good weather. The daily maximum temperature is 25.8C and the daily minimum is 18.7C, which makes it perfect for spending time checking out the sights.
How to get to Sydney
Since February is still part of the high season, make sure to look for cheap tickets to Australia slightly in advance (2 to 6 weeks is quite enough). Make sure to check out the special offers to fly into Sydney.
As for accommodation in Sydney, those who plan to save some money should look beyond the typical budget hotels. Sydney hostels are plentiful and varied. You can easily find a private room to suit your budget if you plan to have some intimacy, or you can opt for a dorm if you don’t mind the crowds. Either way, check the reviews before you decide where to stay; it’s a pity to book a party hostel if you plan to sleep at night.
Events and things to do
When it comes to the things to do, you won’t be bored… The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade is the perfect combination of passion and people, this main event is full of spectators from all over the world, you’ll find nothing but joy, dance, and love.
On the other hand, Bondi Openair offers the visitors the possibility to enjoy movies, live music and entertainment. Discover the open-air cinema and chill out with friends and strangers.
The Chinese New Year is celebrated between February 12 and 28. You can check out the Chinese markets, watch the Dragon Boat Races, and a Twilight Parade.
