List your property in Sydney

Crowned as the best destination to visit in Australia for 2017 by TripAdvisor, Sydney is a vibrant metropolis,  with stunning natural landscapes all around. City slickers, culture vultures and beach bums alike fall in love with Sydney, and travelers from both abroad and within the country visit throughout the year. The city’s short-term rental market is booming and driving up prices as travelers seek alternative accommodation.

Booking season trends in Sydney

Spring: Sep - Nov

Bookings pick up as we move away from the coldest months into summer.

Summer: Dec - Feb

Strongest season with December being the busiest month. Interests and bookings are high before slowing down in the first few months of the year.

Autumn: Mar - May

Interest continues to wane as we step further into winter. Bookings drop to their lowest in May.

Winter: Jun - Aug

Interests and bookings are relatively stable during these months.
TripAdvisor Tip: Prepare your seasonal rates early as travellers regularly inquire 3 months in advance. For peak season, this jumps to as much as 6 to 12 months ahead of their intended stay. Block your calendar if you’re already booked for particular dates. Be sure to block booked dates on your calendar so you won’t have to decline any bookings. You’ll have less hassle and the traveller will enjoy a smooth booking experience.
Peak Season: November and December are the peak tourist months, coinciding with Schoolies Week while also stepping into Sydney’s warmest weather (thanks to Australia’s location in the Southern Hemisphere).
