Planning a trip Down Under in the month of June? Indulge in the top attractions of Sydney– Harbour Cruise, Hunter Valley, Vivid Sydney and much more!

Sydney’s winter begins in June and these months are the best to enjoy and explore the harbour city since everything from airfare to hotels will be at excellent prices. During winter there are plenty of things to see and do in the city. It also marks the beginning of something special in Syndye’s calendar, the annual whale watching season. Since there are no school holidays in this month, the tourist attractions and hotspots are likely to be less crowded, making it an ideal time to explore the city, especially if you prefer cooler temperatures. Here are some top experiences to make the most of your visit!

Harbour Cruises

Sydney has a magnificent skyline with towering skyscrapers and numerous monumental structures and it is best experienced from a Sydney Lunch Cruise! Enjoy various cruises that will take you past the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge as you enjoy the luxury of a freshly prepared menu and a fully licensed bar! Pick a classic paddlewheeler to experience striking views of the cityscapes and the harbour attractions from the wrap-around verandahs as you feast on a yummy buffet lunch! The days are eminently pleasant resulting in clear and bright days so this is an excellent choice! If you prefer to go out after dark you can choose a Sydney Harbour Dinner Cruise on the paddlewheeler, offering you a chance to enjoy a three course seated-menu and a live cabaret show! Get your cameras ready at all times as you will be witnessing the city in its night lights and the harbour landmarks illuminated with colourful patterns!


Yet another way to experience the city’s breathtaking skyline and the striking views of the nation’s coast. Plunge into Earth at speeds you have only dreamt of in the gorgeous backdrop of Sydney’s landscapes in one of the most exhilarating experiences up for grabs in the whole of the city. The team that runs the tandem skydiving experience takes a chief spot in terms of safety parameters. Equipped with a highly-qualified staff and failure-proof equipment such as the chutes with AAD technology, this experience is one of the must-do things in the city and has emerged as a popular tourist attraction. So whether you're looking to tick off a bucket list activity or an adrenaline junkie in general, have a go at this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Vivid Sydney

If you're visiting Sydney in early June you can witness one of the biggest festivals of lights in the Southern Hemisphere. Vivid Sydney 2022 is the annual festival of light, music and ideas that commences from late May and sets the city’s streets and buildings on fire for 23 days. Experience some of the most captivating light installations and art projections inspired by the very soul of the city and brought to life by artists from near and far! You can experience these extravagant spectacles through many ways including walking tours, photography tours, HeliTours, Vivid Cruises and many more! This year the festival is going to be the biggest since its inception with numerous festival firsts and of course the main drawcard– the Lighting of the Sails.

Hunter Valley

If you have already covered all the prominent spots in the city, then it's time for you to go on a day trip to Hunter Valley, one of the most underrated regions in New South Wales. Although the conjured depiction of the area is an image of wilderness, predators and camouflage, Hunter Valley presents a rather contrasting scenery with vineyards, some friendly kangaroos and delicious food! Stroll through the best vineyards and cellars of the area and learn about the winemaking processes as you sample a few wine delicacies and locally produced cheese!
