When to visit

Seasons in Australia are different from those in the Northern Hemisphere. Summer lasts from December to February, and winter lasts from June to August. The exact type of weather you'll experience depends on the region you’re visiting.

Northern Australia is known for hot weather in January and February, so if you want more comfortable climate, visit Tasmania, Perth or Melbourne. In March, the whale watching season starts off the coast of Victoria. Also, Adelaide, Kangaroo Island and Barossa Valley are all great locations to visit in March.

During April and May, the east coast is usually dry, clear and sunny. Autumn is beautiful in Sydney during June and July, but also, this is a good time to visit Uluru and Darwin .
