Best Time To Go and Weather

The first thing to remember with Australia is that the seasons are reversed to those of the Northern Hemisphere, whilst the sheer size of the country makes for a vast diversity of climatic conditions. That said it is a country that, depending upon where you wish to go, makes for an ideal year round destination. We recommend considering March/April and October/ November when the tourist spots can be less crowded and prices lower. In the tropical coastal regions the weather generally follows two distinct seasons, wet and dry, with April to November being the best time to visit, when the moderate coastal humidity helps to keep temperatures to an acceptable level and the days remain dry. By contrast the arid interior is marked by high summer temperatures, very little rainfall and freezing temperatures during the winter evenings. These regions are best during the months of April, May, October and November. Southern Australia is best between December and March, although be aware that the long Christmas holidays can mean crowded beaches and prices will be at a premium. For those planning on heading north, then May to October are the best times to travel, when the rainfall and temperatures are lower. Tasmania is best explored during the Australian summer months, when temperatures are comfortable although be aware that the central highlands can be unpredictable and wet.
