(What's that elephant doing, with his trunk sticking out of the water? Glad you asked ... that's male calf Luk Chai's way of cooling off - using his "snorkel" while staying submerged on a heatwave hot Sydney day at Taronga Zoo). 



So which stretch of warm Sydney Australia sand would you really like to slide your toes into on your holidays?

  • What's the Best Beach for you? Would it be famous Bondi Beach - so close to the city?

So many remarkable Sydney travel tips!

Amazingly Sydney boasts more than 60 beaches where the ocean waves roll in. They stretch many kilometres along the entire Sydney Australia seaboard.

Then inside the harbour are many other delightful beaches, without the surf.


Does sand in the cozzies (swimsuit) cause you aggrevation?

Would you be more comfortable cruising, sailing or jet boating under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, warm breeze in your hair, no sand in your clothes?

Of course you don't really have to be in need of thawing out to enjoy Sydney Australia. (If you come in our winter it can be chilly. The average daily maximum temperature slips to 16deg C in June and July. But hey, that's not too bad - there are many quite warm winter days here).
