When to Travel to Australia
When planning a vacation, it is very important to take into consideration the time of year you will be traveling. Most destinations have a specific time period where conditions are ideal for a great trip. However, other destinations are great all year long and traveling to them all depends on what you want to do or see. Australia is one of those destinations
Located in the southern hemisphere, Australia is home to diverse temperatures. The northern part of the country is hotter while the south is cooler. It’s not uncommon to have temperatures in the 50s in the south while it is 30 degrees warmer in the north. Even though temperatures may fluctuate between the north and south, much of Australia is temperate year- round. However, there are a few factors to keep in mind when planning your Australian adventure.
- The wet season is from November to April. There is heavy rains and high humidity. During the wet season, Western Australia is not very welcoming in terms of weather, but you will find that the Australian people are very welcoming all year long.
- The dry season is from May to October and features much lover humidity levels. This is a very popular time for travelers.
- From mid-December to January, Australians take vacation so the beaches are packed and hotels all booked. Also, airfare is at its highest. They begin to drop from February to March, but spike again during Easter.
- If you are on a budget, consider traveling during mid-April to August as the price of airfares and accommodations will be lower.
