Every year, people from all around the world flock down to Sydney to enjoy the warmer weather, sandy shores, blue skies and even bluer waters. With so many great outdoor destinations and activities, it comes at no surprise that Summertime in Sydney is one of the best places to be. There are many great locations across Sydney to celebrate the hot season, making it hard to choose just exactly where to waste away your Summer days away. Fortunately for you, we’ve made things easier and have come up with a list of the best Sydney Summer hang out spots. Check them out below:

Bondi Beach


A Sydney Summer time favourite, the shores of Bondi Beach are far from deserted during the sunny season. Located in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs, the world-famous destination is the beach to visit in Summer. Enjoy activities like relaxing on the sand, playing volleyball, or surfing some waves. When you’re done with the sand and sea, head up to the main road for a sprawl of cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. There are also a great range of other amazing Sydney beaches to visit, from Shelly Beach in the North, or Cronulla in the South.

Centennial Park


Take to Centennial in Summer for a peaceful picnic in a park-side setting. Perfect for a family outing, romantic date, or just to hang out with a bunch of friends. Bring a hamper filled with a couple of sandwiches and snacks, and lay on the grass as you listen to the sounds of nature. Once you’re filled up, be sure to take it with you though, as feeding the ducks and other animals is highly discouraged in order to protect them. There is also plenty of other great Summer outdoor activities in Centennial, from cycling, horse riding, birdwatching and self-guided walks. 

Royal National Park

The Royal National Park in Sydney’s south is perfect for thrill-seekers and adventurous travellers who want to explore Sydney’s great outdoors. Depending on your appetite for adventure, pick from a number of bush walks and hikes with tracks ranging from easy to hard. On an especially hot day, take to Wattamolla Beach and float the day away on an oversized floatie. Just be sure to check weather conditions and alerts before visiting, especially as the area can be prone to bushfires during Summer.

Luna Park Sydney

Although you can visit Luna Park year-round, Summer is one of the best times to take a trip to the world-famous theme park. Catch a ferry over from Circular Quay and enjoy the sunny ride over via the blue waters of Sydney Harbour. Once there, hop in line for never-ending entertainment as you take on rides like the Wild Mouse or Dodgem City. When you’re exhausted from all the fun and games, head to the rooftop cinema to catch some of the newest award-winning blockbuster titles and cult-classics.
