Best Time To Visit Australia
Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination
The best time to visit Australia is between the months of December and January, closely followed by April and May. The usual popular months for tourism for the rest of the world gets reverse in case of Australia because the location is in the southern hemisphere. The Land Down Under has the opposite seasons than most of the other countries. So, during December to January, Australia enjoys late summer, while during April to May, it experiences the pleasant season of autumn.
Let’s go through the below guide to help you decide the best time to visit Australia basis some prominent areas, months, and seasons.
March - May:
During March to May, Australia experiences autumn. Temperature ranges from 20°C to 25°C on an average. During this time of the year, the skies are clear after the rains, and the chill of winter is yet to set in, which makes it the best time to travel to Australia.
This is also the best time to enjoy a boat trip or swimming with the shark in the Ningaloo Reef.
June - August:
June through August is cold winter. But the temperature in Australia does not go too down to become uncomfortable. The chill in the air is mild. The minimum temperature in Sydney is around 8°C, and the maximum is 16°C on an average during peak winters in July.
Partake in an unusual boat race, called Henley-on-Todd Regatta held in August in Alice Springs.
September - November:
This is the springtime in Australia, when the average maximum temperature in the northern territory can go as high as 35°C-38°C. The greens are at large, the cold fades away, and the sun shines brightly over the beaches, deserts and oceans. But, because of the subtropical high-pressure belt zone, the heat and humidity both are quite high during this time. Thus, it is not the best months to visit Australia.
Get to enjoy food and wine festivals while exploring the Margaret River region or partake in the Melbourne Cup horse race in November for a different experience.
December - February:
These are the tourism hotspot months for Australia, because of the pleasant weather and the chance to experience Christmas in summer. The temperature around the country is more or less pleasant, although it is summer here. Sydney has 19°C-25°C temperature, which makes summer in Australia perfect for outdoor activities without breaking much of a sweat.
Get to celebrate Australia Day with some firework display around Sydney Harbour.
Best time to visit the East Coast:
For the love of beaches, one must visit to the east coast of Australia during the summer season, i.e. between the months of December and February. However, one can also choose to travel during the spring season, i.e from September to November when accommodation prices are lower and the weather is also quite decent.
Best time to visit the Great Barrier Reef:
Though, the best time to visit the Great Barrier Reef can be anytime after rainfall. However, as the weather in Australia is more stable during the winter season, it is recommended to visit here from the month of June to October.
Best time to visit the Gold Coast:
Enjoy an excursion to the Gold Coast in the months of April and May when the temperatures are comfortable with less rainfall.
Climate in Australia
Summer Season in Australia
Summer season in Australia is when the most number of tourists visit the country. Although the north can get uncomfortably warm, the southern and western coasts are pretty pleasant to hang out in. This is the best time for Australia travel.
Monsoon Season in Australia
The west to north westerly monsoon winds brings the monsoon season in Australia during December to March. Thunderstorms are common, so are cyclones. Humidity stays around 70% in many places. However, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne can be visited easily, carrying an umbrella in the bag.
Winter Season in Australia
Winter in Australia is the opposite of what rest of the world experiences for the equatorial difference. The months from June to August are the winter season here. Although it is not the most popular season to visit Australia, one can make do with the climatic conditions for the cheaper rates of flights, hotels and transportation. The popular spots will have fewer crowds as well. If climate and temperature is not the issue, winter season in Australia can be a great time for honeymoon in peace.

Trip to AustraliaWe are the widely traveled senior citizens chose to visit Australia and covered Melbourne, Gold-Coast, Cairns and Sydney. The services of Travel Triangle & Fantabulous are great in general and the interactions with Ishita & Narendar is really superb. Appreciate Ishita's patience and cool handling of demanding customers like me. Narendar is meticulous. But, Travel Triangle/Fantabulous need to go a long way and required to improve & innovate the "Flight-Booking-System and Method" without hurting or taxing both sides.

Trip to Australiait was wonderful trip ... everything was well planned . thanks wanderbird holidays for this memorable holiday.
Trip to AustraliaI could customize my trip and also everything was as per plan and hassle free. i have only one suggestion- Please aware customer about the Visa deadlines when you yourself bear the cost. It costed me more and risk of not meeting deadline was faced just because of lack of communication on time. Also the victoria hotel in melbourne is good. But my experience with Novotel Rockford hotel in sydney was not good.

Trip to New ZealandI booked my Australia & NZ (South Island) holiday with the travel agent Hub Holidays. It has been a great service by the travel agent. The agent really has an in-depth knowledge of the travel aspects for these countries. Both Amit and Prashanth guided me right from the initial booking stage of the holiday to the completion of our trip. They have been always available on the phone and watsapp for any issues encountered by me during the Holiday. It has been a great service and I look forward to revisit New Zealand, both north and south islands with the assistance from this travel agent. Sky diving in queenstown has been an amazing memory of my trip.
