Sydney Flights

A multicultural city, Sydney is filled with art, history and beauty from many different walks of life. There is something to please just about everyone - the stunning white sands and azure waters of Bondi and Palm Beach, the vibrant nightlife on Kings Cross, the riveting performances at the Sydney Opera House and the spectacularly natural beauty of Royal Botanic Gardens. Although this city is known to be kind to the budget traveller, flights to Sydney are often expensive unless you book well in advance or do not mind taking economy-class seats.

Best time to travel to Sydney

Peak Season:

From December through to March, tourists flock to this city in order to enjoy the warmth and play in the Sydney Harbour, visit the Featherdale Wildlife Park, or view the stone carvings at the Royal National Park. Visitors also come to take part in the many celebrations that occur during these months, like the Sydney Festival, the acclaimed Tropfest short film festival, and Mardi Gras.

Shoulder Season:

The price of accommodation and flights to Sydney lower from mid-April to mid-May, mid-August to September, and mid-December to mid-January. Although there are still many tourists around, visitors typically thin out during these periods, leaving plenty of room to enjoy the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, skate at the Macquarie Ice Rink, or canoe the Sydney waterways in peace.

Off Season:

Flights are at their cheapest from June to August. Although tourists flee the city during this period, it is still a great time to visit, as both indoor and outdoor activities are still in full swing. For instance, you can take a tour through the Powerhouse Museum, or take in a rugby league game at ANZ Stadium.

We did have an issue with a charge appearing for our checked in bags when trying to use the kiosk at airport. Had to go and talk to a staff member who sorted it

Flight was delayed leaving and although made up the time during the flight, it was held up again due to weather. For those of us with connecting flights although told we would be assisted through Sydney airport this help did not eventuate. Most disappointed with this aspect of the service.
