Climate
The climate varies across Australia due to its size but generally most of the country receives in excess of 3000 hour’s sunshine annually while the coast has the most rainfall. The north is usually hot and tropical while the south experiencing moderate sub-tropical weather with some areas dropping to below freezing during winter. Winter is the dry season from June to August while summer is wet from December to February but in the southern areas of the country temperatures vary more with most rainfall during winter.

 
When to Fly
 
Peak
Peak season most popular areas is during the winter but in the northern parts its pleasant from April to September when daytime temperatures are between 19 to 31°C with hardly any rain. As June, July and August are the busiest months your flights, accommodation and excursions need to be booked well in advance and youll be paying higher rates as well. September and October are great for visiting the southern areas when it’s still warm enough to enjoy the beach.
Low
October to March is hot, humid and wet and definitely for travellers that can take the heat.
