Things to do in Sydney in March 2025

March is one of my favourite months in Sydney. The weather has cooled a little, humidity begins to drop, and the crowds have dropped a little, it’s a great time to explore the city.

It’s also a popular time for locals to plan a getaway but start early if you are considering an Easter weekend. If you are visiting from out of town, then either book early or avoid that week entirely.

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