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.
