In the southern hemisphere, April and May in Sydney is Autumn, so expect warm days and mild nights. Many tourists find this to be one of the more favourable months for exploring Sydney, as the weather is warm and pleasant and not as hot as in the summer months. Average temperatures range from 12°C (54°F) at night to 23°C (73°F) in the daytime.
June is the beginning of Winter but Sydney enjoys a temperate climate with a mild winter, and has more than 340 sunny days a year. Average temperatures range from 10°C (50°F) at night to 18°C (64°F) in the daytime.
Winter is the best time to travel to the hotter northern parts of Australia, for example: to explore the Outback - the red centre, Great Barrier Reef or tropics.
