We know that the coming season might not be as warm as we hope it to be, but it shouldn’t hold you back from going all out during your upcoming vacation to Sydney. Although it might rain sometimes, Sydney’s winter still promises clear skies on most days for you to explore. During these days, you can have family picnics up high on the Blue Mountain region, or simply enjoy the warmer temperature on the beaches of Sydney. After all, the beaches are definitely one of Sydney’s best charms!
For starters, Bondi Beach would be a perfect destination for everyone. It has everything from surf waves, great food and a great atmosphere. Nowadays, you can even ride a camel on the beach for an exotic experience! But even if you are not into any of those activities, walking around the beach would be quite an adventure. Walk uphill to the south side of the beach and you will find yourself at a rocky cliff with the best view of Bondi. Everything is safe enough for your kids because stairs and fences will guide your way uphill.
Not far from Bondi, you will find Clovelly Beach, a small and tranquil beach located between two rocky ridges with a saltwater pool on the northern side. The Bondi beach side view from Clovelly will give you lots of photos to take back home. To add up the fun, take your loved ones for cups of warm chocolate at Seasalt Café and a few other cafes that you will spot during your walk.
For a more playful beach, take a visit to Dee Why Beach. Other than its playful name, the beach itself contains many playful family activities such as table tennis or relaxing kayaking. For families with younger kids, Shelly Beach at Cronula would be perfect to visit. With large grassed area, barbecues for public use and a fenced playground, Shelly Beach is a great option for parents with younger children.
With all of these beaches to visit during the winter, don’t forget some extra preparations for your family trip. Here are a few things that might be useful to have on hand:Warm ointments to keep the little ones warm under the jackets would be much needed. Light bites, in case you can't find a café or restaurant nearby since you will be walking around a lot in Sydney’s windy weather Umbrellas (or jacket with hoody) because the rain could hit anytime during the winter. The rain wouldn’t be too heavy, so a few umbrellas and winter jacket should be enough.
Now that you got your beaches and items list ready, what’s left would be a personal photographer to capture all of these moments. Don’t worry, we got that covered. Book a session to have a personal photographer capture every one of your precious holiday moments!

No, this is not a marketing campaign, it's a fact! Don't believe us? Check out these real stories from our real clients on why they love SweetEscape so much!
Our very own Creative Director, Jalu, wasn't really a big fan of being photographed. However, after 8 months of working in SweetEscape and (naturally) getting exposed to SweetEscape's beautiful photos in a lot of beautiful locations around the world, Jalu started to feel that maybe being photographed isn't such a bad idea after all.
So, for his family holiday in Tokyo this year-end, Jalu booked his first-ever session. What impressed him the most is how easy the booking process turned out to be–just through the app. His interesed was piqued even higher when he met the photographer who was very friendly and easy to converse with.
"I also noticed how professional their cameras and gears were! So it made me even more convinced that my photos would turn out to be great!" said Jalu.
When Jalu received the photos, he was surprised at how beautiful the photos turned out to be. His wife loved the session and the photos, his young daughter–which he feared wouldn't enjoy the shoot–also absolutely loved it, even he himself looked good in the photos!
"The photographers really know how to find the perfect angle for you, I never thought my photos would turn out these great!" said Jalu. "I absolutely love it, and I'd definitely book more sessions when I travel to other interesting locations in the future."
Sheena Buraga and her husband Daniel are truly one of the most unique clients SweetEscape had recently. Their 'Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept is really inspiring, and SweetEscape is proud and honoured to be a part of their love journey from the very start when Daniel first proposed to Sheena in Tokyo (spring), to their pre-nup shots in Nami Island (autumn) and Niseko (winter), and finally to their final pre-nup shot in Siargao (summer).
"Between May and June 2018 after the proposal, we started planning for our wedding. At first we thought that the photos in Tokyo would be our proposal / engagement photos, and we wanted to capture another pre-nup photoshoot, not with SweetEscape. But when seeing our proposal photos shot by SweetEscape, everybody said that our pre-nup shoots will look less beautiful compared to the super-beautiful photos of our proposal taken by SweetEscape! Considering this, and since we were travelling to Nami Island, South Korea in the autumn, we decided to create this 'Four Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept with SweetEscape!" said Sheena when asked about what made them keep taking their pre-nup shots with us.
TV reporter Najla Hilabi always puts an extra care for her Instagram feed; she wants it to look extra neat and beautiful, and this was her initial reason to use SweetEscape. After knowing about us from an Instagram ad, she decided to book her first session for her trip to Prague.
"I don't know if I'd ever go back to Prague again, so I thought it was important to capture my moments there with a proper photography service," said Najla.
What impressed her was eventhough there were some language barrier with the photographer, the photos still turned out beautiful, and the photographer brought her to the hidden gems of the already enchanting city. This, in addition to the beautiful photos she received afterwards, made her book another session for her recent trip to Tokyo.
"I feel that SweetEscape always maintains their standard of quality. You don't just get your raw photos, you get perfectly curated and professionally edited photos, and this careful production process really makes me love SweetEscape!"
