When an Autumn chill begins to hit the air, there’s nothing better than taking a holiday in a warmer climate. Spring in Sydney begins in September, making it a great place to enjoy warm breezes, flowers, and sports matches.
If you plan your year correctly, you can enjoy a Scottish Spring, then an Australian one, extending the warm months of the year significantly. This type of seasonal holiday adventure can be a wonderful way to brighten up a dismal month, allowing you to see more of the world’s beauty.
As you plan your holiday this year, consider leaving Scotland’s cooler temperatures behind and heading Down Under for one of these exciting events:
Bondi: Sculpture by the Sea
If you’d prefer to get out of the damp Autumn weather and instead enjoy Spring ocean breezes, it may be time to book a ticket to the Australian seaside. Plan a holiday in Sydney this October and November to see one of the world’s most interesting seaside sculpture exhibits, combining a beach vacation and a lovely artistic adventure.
Enjoy walking along Bondi Beach whilst touring the world’s largest free sculpture exhibit during Sculpture by the Sea. This 2 kilometre walk features 100 sculptures by artists throughout Australia and around the world. Visit from 24 October – 10 November 2019. Individuals with varying mobility can book tickets in advance or arrange for specialized tours.
