Weather Conditions:

The way we perceive things is not actually the way they are. Greenland is actually covered in ice while Iceland has a greeny vista. You may say you hate the sun now, but one day you will realize it ain’t so bad, you may also feel annoyed everytime you hear pouring rain, a time will come that you will eventually learn to embrace the ambiance of rainfall. The point is, the default way you think might go against the way things are in reality but with an open mind you might grow to like it.

Sydney experiences all four seasons, Summer is from December to February, Autumn is from March to May, Winter occurs from June to August and finally Spring is September to November.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Stretching for almost 3,770 ft, the harbour bridge is a legacy of Australia’s architectural design. The dramatic view of the Opera House enchants everyone upon gazing, especially at night.

The fortification of the steel through arch bridge started on July 28th, 1923 and ended on January 19th, 1932 to mark its inauguration. One thing to look forward too rather than the view is the climb. Climb over 134m above sea level and enjoy the panoramic view of the entire city.

  1. Sydney is one of the best destinations I’ve visited. Even though I only stayed THERE for 5 days, the experience was still amazing especially the bridge climb.

     
  2. I have been in Sydney for I think 3 times by now, each time, I stayed there for one week. I never got tired of looking at the sea while standing on the bridge. I really want to go back and experience that once more.
