Peak ( Dec - Feb )

Days are warm and sunny (with occasional showers that disappear quickly), and this is the most festive time in Australia (Christmas and New Year holidays as well as Australia Day). Beaches and hotels are full, flights expensive, and trips and excursions sell out very quickly, so book well in advance.

Shoulder ( Mar - May , Oct - Nov )

Days are still bright and sunny, and much drier compared to the summer months, but now there is a welcome dip in temperature as Australia goes into autumn. This is a wonderful time to visit, when the tourist crush is busy, but not as heavy as peak summer. April - September sees the North opening up with cool temperatures and dry days.

Low ( Jun - Sep )

Australia's 'winter' season; the weather is still gorgeous with bright clear days, comfortable temperatures and mildly nippy nights. Things slow down a little in the south. It's still a great time to travel, weather-wise, with the added advantage of more value rates and lesser crowds, although certain entertainment and activities may be reduced. Up north, wildflowers are in bloom, and strong coastal winds will disrupt access to reefs for diving.
