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.
