Absolute pleasure if you can keep out of the way of the joggers and strollers... Worth a lovely stroll along the foreshore and into the beautiful Botanical Gardens.

April in Sydney is Autumn : it's warm but not as hot as in the summer months. Very nice for walking about. Expect daytime temperatures around 20°C (68°F) cooling down at night to 15°C (58°F) .
