While it’s drizzling or grey in the city, it’s tempting to stay snug under the covers. Why waste a perfectly good day when there’s so much to be enjoyed? If you’ve been wondering what to do on a rainy day in Sydney, wonder no more! Take a museum and art gallery tour
Here’s what to do in Sydney on a rainy day if you love art, history and culture. This city has an incredible range of historical exhibitions showing at any one time, from native wildlife at the Australian Museum to convict history at the Hyde Park Barracks Museum. Or, soak up some modern art at the Art Gallery of NSW and at the small private galleries dotted throughout the streets.
Treat yourselves to Sydney’s best high tea
What could be more decadent than getting dressed up and heading out to high tea while it’s miserable outside? Our top pick is The Tea Room in the stunning grand ballroom of the Queen Victoria Building. Choose from a sumptuous afternoon tea with champagne or a tantalising tea selection. Could these be the best scones in Sydney? We’ll let you be the judge!
Pick up an umbrella and explore
You may be unsure of what to do in Sydney in the rain, but the drizzle can bring its own magic. The city changes when the streets are wet and that’s something to experience in itself. You could head down to Circular Quay to see the Sydney Opera House against a dramatic cloudy background, or watch the clouds part from the Sydney Tower Eye Observation Deck.
