Sydney really comes into her own in summer. After all, we’re surrounded by beautiful beaches, bush walks and ocean pools – and there are major cultural events like Sydney Festival, Twilight at Taronga and Tropfest. It’s the best time of the year to check out Sydney’s best rooftop bars and outdoor dining options. There are outdoor cinema sessions in every corner of the city, plus, when better than a sweltering hot day to try out the best Frosé cocktails around.
