A Sunbather’s Paradise

Sydney has emerged as the gay capital of the Southern Hemisphere, and Sydney’s gay beaches are a major gay attraction and rated excellent, some of which are among the ‘gayest’ Australia has to offer.

The famous Bondi Beach has a large gay concentration in the north end, whilst Obelisk Beach is a favourite of the gay and lesbian sun-lover.  Foreshore Beach is nude and gay, located off Foreshore Road near the airport.  Lady Jane Beach is another gay beach that has become an officially sanctioned clothing-optional recreation area.

Sydney Gay Scene

There are many gay venues throughout the city, although well-established Sydney gay bars and clubs can be found on Oxford Street in Darlinghurst.  This district has become more mixed in recent years but it is still the most popular place for a night out.

Sydney has wonderful weather all year round.  The summer high season is from December through February, with the peak period for gay sunbathers being during the internationally renowned Mardi Gras festival (around late-February or early March).
