Average time to visit

In the southern half of Australia the seasons are the opposite of those in the northern hemisphere: spring comes in September, summer is from December to February, autumn runs from March to May, and winter begins in June.

Sydney is great to visit year round but if you want warm sun and dry weather it is best to try between November and April. Their winter months of May - October usually have mild weather so you can still enjoy all the sights.

Dining here at Bells at Killcare is a highlight, and the restaurant, Manfredi at Bells, showcases chef Stefano Manfredi’s urban sensibilities and transplants them to a quintessentially Australian contemporary coastal setting. The menus are built on authenticity, simplicity and freshness, featuring seasonal dishes inspired by the produce grown and harvested in the estate’s famous vegetable garden, known as Stefano’s garden, and the surrounding local area.
