Sydney is a busy, bustling metropolis, and you’ll be doing a lot of walking while you’re there. Even though Sydney can get quite hot, sandals are a bad fit for a visit to the city. Pack a pair of comfortable, breathable sneakers or other shoes instead. Sydney experiences rain at all times of the year, so you’ll also want to bring an umbrella and a pair of warm clothes just in case.
