Sitting pretty on the southeast coast of Australia, ever-upbeat Sydney is a vision of sun-kissed glamour. The iconic harbor glows in the afternoon sun, while Bondi Beach buzzes all year long. Even in the cooler winter months, from June to August, the cosmopolitan city revolves around outdoor experiences. Alfresco restaurants and bars spill onto the sidewalks, while hikes, sailing, coastal drives and wine tastings punctuate a perfect itinerary. Whether you’re seeking out the latest blink-and-you’ll-miss-it bar or luxuriating on an empty beach, the city’s casual-cool attitude will make you feel right at home.
