Autumn Months

> > Climate in Sydney Australia Autumn

Climate in Sydney Australia in autumn is great. It is warm and cosy.

Perfect to go to the beach and avoid the strong summer sun.

And the water is even warmer than during the previous months.

March and April can bring a bit more rain, well, more by Australian standards, which are very low in terms of rainfall, as drought rules in this country.

Days are getting shorter and the month of May will be cooler, so you will need a jacket to throw over your summer clothes.
