Not sure there is a 'low peak season'. Do you mean low season or peak season ? And is this for flying here or staying in a hotel ?

I think you're misunderstanding dytokyo's question.

The 'seasons' for hotels do not necessarily correspond with airline ticketing. For hotels, the 'low' season is May-Jul inclusive.

Low season is not busy. Peak season is busy. Thus the confusion about your question.

What is it you are after. Budget prices? Good weather? Smaller crowds?

Low season is usually our winter & High season is usually our summer especially around Christmas & NYE.

The best time to travel in Sydney IMO is out of school hols in the months of March / April / Sept / Nov

spring - September / October / November

summer - Dec / Jan / Feb /

winter - June/ July / August

Autumn - March / April / May

Actually I'm going to beg to differ with winter being quiet.

Often it is busier because this is when most of the Northern hemisphere have their longer vacation.

Price wise for hotels in Sydney look out for events such as football or other things

February is always expensive as is March due to the cruise season

Rotary have a convention next JUne, that will be sure to rise prices

Theres international level baseball in late March = higher prices (along with Mardi Gras early in the month)

The best thing to do IMHO is key ina few dates and compare.

I will have a day to spend on my own in Sydney. I realize this is just scratching the surface, but I would like to get an idea of a few of the top sights I might see in a short time. I will be depending on public transport of some kind. Thanks so much for any suggestions!

Hi BJL-40, it's best if you start your own thread to avoid confusion, and you might like to have a look at the Top Questions over on the right. The Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, historic Rocks area, Botanic Gardens, are all in the same area so you might like to wander around there, and Circular Quay is also in the vicinity so you could catch a ferry and enjoy the views from out on the harbour too.
