    Default Sydney. what to pack?

    We are heading to Sydney on thursday morning for 4 days. I have been looking at the weather forecast but it seems really patchy. Is it mainly autumn weather or is it still in the warm side. Please adjust your answers for someone from brisbane, so someone who thinks 20 degrees is chilly.

    Hard to tell. I walked this morning at 5am to the station and was really humid - just been out in Martin place and it's cold and rainy.
    Sooo pack as if you are going to Melbourne - ie 4 seasons in one day

    I'm a little further north of Sydney, but it's still kinda warm.

    I would pack a couple of cardis/long sleeve options/jeans just in case.

    I'm in western Sydney. It's currently raining but I'm walking around in jeans and jumper but barefoot? It's really weird lately. It's going to be a bit warmer the next few days though so I think autumn type clothes will get you through with maybe a jumper/cardi if it gets cooler at night.

    ETA - sorry @Mmumm didn't mean to quote you.

    Just to add to this, 5 minutes later I just took the jumper off. Sydney weather sucks. I'm not sure if you mentioned if you are heading to the city or out west. It's cooler in the city than the west.

    I would pack long, mid length and short pants. T shirts, and a cardi/hoodie just in case. I've been wearing jeans and tee comfortably most days.

    Second this! And waterproof shoes if you can.
    I comfortably walked to work in shorts and a t-shirt today, while it was pouring with rain. So it's pretending to be rainy winter, but it's still pretty warm.

    It's going to be warm next weekend. Pack jeans and a cardigan and then whatever you would wear in Brisbane.

    I have been starting my day in long pants and a cardi then usually by about 10:30-11am I can take the cardi off. I even wore shorts on the weekend. It's such in between weather ATM that I'd pack for low 20s up to high 20s.

    Haha thanks. So basically it is just as my great aunt Mavis always said - "you should never go out in Sydney without a cardigan".
