I'm coming to live in Sydney from the end of October.  I currently surf in Ireland and use a 5-3 wetsuit, is there any point in bringing it at all?

Also I have heard that there are pretty big crowds around Sydney, how far out would I have to drive of a weekend to find some nice spots...  in Ireland anything more than 10 on a decent size beach break is a crowd...

Bro.. please dont bring that suit. Unless you wish to pass out from the heat. Seriously family back home are saying its in the high 20´s almost 30 so there is no way you will need it. However if you are surfing sydney you will need at least a 3-2 as its colder waters then up north, just take a springy. As for crowds, you have a better chance of getting a seat on the tube at London bridge at rush hour then you do of getting up crowded surfs, secret tip go for the REAL early.
