Sydney has been chosen as the AFF Annual Gathering destination for 2019, occurring over the weekend of the 18th to 20th October. The average temperature range for October is 14.4ºC to 22.8ºC, with a relative humidity of 53%. The average rainfall is 82.2mm with 11 rainy days. It is Australia's most populous city (as of 2017).

Sydney has previously played host to an Annual Gathering, as the third city chosen in the second year. Sydney is not the first city to play host twice, with Melbourne previously taking that honour as the first (2008) and eighth (2014); and Adelaide as the second (2008) and twelfth (2018).

We are of course interested to hear your suggestions and ideas for the event, so together we can make it enjoyable for all, but with the dates locked in now, please feel free to solidify a place at the 2019 annual gathering.

No group tours planned for the afternoon, but a Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb is recommended.

Still working on it...

Sydney is easy for us and so far that should be good.
