Visit Sydney

Sydney is the capital city of New South Wales, Australia. From splendid Sydney Harbour, idyllic beaches and great national parks, to the marvellous creativity of the Sydney Opera House, we know all delegates of the conference will enjoy what Sydney has to offer.

The average daytime temperatures in Sydney in September are around 16°C while high temperatures can hit peaks of 20°C on warmer days. Although the weather is warming in September, Sydney can experience some chilly westerly winds this month.

While the city is generally sheltered from these winds, it gets very chilly near the waters when they blow. Temperatures do drop on an evening too, so make sure to pack a jacket. The average minimum temperatures generally tend to hover around 12°C.


Pre and post conference touring options are provided for your convenience. These tours are not operated by the conference but can be booked directly, for a date and time that suits you.
