2. Find The Best Waterfalls To Swim In Sydney


The best things about finding the best waterfalls to swim in Sydney is the fact that it tends to be a bit cooler near waterfalls, plus the water is always a bit on the chillier side!

I always find by January I’ve had enough of the beach and need to move more. Exploring near Sydney is one of the best things about living in Sydney. There are so many waterfalls and wild swimming spots to be found, you won’t believe how close they are to the city!

Most of the wild swimming spots take about a 30 minute walk but when you get there, you’ll probably get the entire place to yourself!

3. Invest In A Decent Beach Tent In Sydney


If you’re heading to the beach, make sure you invest in a decent beach tent in Sydney. If you don’t have a beach tent, you won’t be able to stay out in the sun for very long. Also, a beach tent will be able to keep your esky cool and you’ll be able to get some shade whenever you need it.

We bought a Lovin Summer beach tent and love it! I highly recommend these beach tents, honestly it’s a game changer as they are really light weight and easy to put up.

4. Keep Hydrated In The Sun


When it just gets all a bit too hot, my go to food is an acai bowl in Sydney. This frozen acai berry is blended with frozen bananas and strawberries with granola and fresh fruit on top. It’s the best cooling food to have when its hot in Sydney!

I’ve done my research, tried and tested the best acai bowls in Sydney into a post so you know where to go to get the best.
