When to visit Australia

Most tourists flock to popular travel destinations in Australia during the Aussie winter. This is the peak travel season in the country, so you have to book your flight early if you want to experience the Australian winter.

The country is in the southern hemisphere, so if the northern hemisphere is experiencing summer, that means it is winter in Australia. During this season, which starts in June, the temperature in the country can range from 18 to 23 °C (64 to 73 °F). Midwinter months happen from July to August.

On the other hand, from November up to March, Australia gets its hottest temperatures. In this summer season, during the daytime, the temperature can hit 32 up to 40 °C (90 to 104 °F).

Weather is very pleasant during the months of April up to September. It seldom rains during these months. You can also try going during the months of September and October, when the weather is warm enough for you to hit the beach in the southern states and cool enough for you to check out the Ayers Rock.

On the other hand, you would want to avoid Australia’s Boxing Day, on December 26 up to the latter part of January, because this is the season when the locals take their summer vacation, so most hotels and airline seats are already fully booked beforehand, and you might not be lucky enough to find discounted airfares and hotel accommodations.
