Things to do in Sydney in March

March is one of my favourite months in Sydney. The weather has started to cool and it’s a perfect time to explore the city.

There are no public holidays and no school vacations or major events so accommodation demand should be good and prices reasonable.

Average Temperatures: 25-18°C ( 74-64°F)
While each year varies, the last March saw six days of rain.

New events and updated content are added to these pages as it becomes available. If you would like us to publicise your event, please send us an email.
