Peak Season

If you did not know by now, Aussie winter is the most popular peak travel season. The best time to visit Australia, especially the Northern part, is between April and September. During this time, the daytime temperatures are between 19°C to 31°C and it hardly rains. The months of June, July and August experience many tourists in these destinations. As a result, it is advisable to book your accommodation in advance.

The dry climate lasts for 6 months in winter as well as autumn, usually between May and October. During this season, the temperature remains low and the skies clearer during daytime. If you are a beach enthusiast, September and October are the best times to visit the beaches in the southern state as it is warm enough to submerge yourself.

Off-Peak Season

Between October and March, it is too hot, too wet or to humid for tourists to visit the Red Center (a colloquial name given to the southern desert region of the Northern Territory in Australia). During this period, North Queensland experiences hot, wet season for the month of November or December to around March or April. The temperature during wet weather ranges at 24°-31°C. Thus, if you intend to travel during this time, brace yourself for heat as well as possible flooding.

The coastal areas in Sydney are mild during winter with temperatures often staying between 11°C to 21°C. Bear in mind that there are instances where Australia can become extremely cold during winter, particularly at higher elevations in places such as Victoria and Tasmania, snow might be plentiful and temperatures below freezing. Usually, the rain pours during winter months. It drizzles more during the night than during the day.

To conclude, Australia offers the perfect destination all year round. When you are planning on visiting this country, you just have to find the destination that suits your needs and fits into your travel plans.
