When it’s summer in Australia
Australia is a good country to enjoy a vacation because it is different from any other tourist destination. Those who visit this nation isolated from the world, surrounded by the Indian and Pacific oceans, definitely want to come back, because it has paradisiacal places and a great variety of climates.
For this reason the recommendation is that before traveling you consider what type of tourism you want to do and that in planning your vacation you check in advance the official website of the Bureau of Meteorology to know the weather in Australia. There, the authorities offer information that will be very useful for you about the weather conditions in the country.
In half of the territory, Australia has a desert climate. Temperatures can reach 40 degrees Celsius in summer, but in winter they do not exceed 18 degrees Celsius, while the average annual temperature is about 20 degrees Celsius.
Sydney, Canberra or New South Wales are the preferred destinations for tourists. We recommend that you plan your trip between November and April. At this time of the year the weather allows you to walk comfortably through the cities since the temperature is about 21 degrees Celsius.
Seasons of the year in Australia
To know when is the best time to travel in Australia, the first thing you need to know is what the weather is going to be like and what you are going to encounter. Therefore, we will start by talking about the seasons in Australia. Since we are in the southern hemisphere, the seasons are reversed:
However, some cities on the east coast also receive a large influx of tourists in the months of July and August, coinciding with the vacations in Europe and the United States. September and October are good months to arrive quietly and settle down. Then, after the summer and from February onwards, it is also quieter.
We regret to inform you that it is never cheap to travel in Australia. To enjoy the country you need a good savings, so no matter when you come or decide to travel around the country, your budget should always be high. However, we can advise you to avoid the months of December and January, which is high season, and to travel in low season to Australia. The low season in Australia coincides with the months of April, May, June, July and August.

This was the intended capital because Sydney and Melbourne could not agree. Canberra has only about 360,000 inhabitants. Sydney with 4.1 million and Melbourne with 3.6 million inhabitants far outnumber the capital.
As Australia has a large north-south expanse, the country is divided into at least three different climate zones. In the north there is a tropical climate with very high humidity, which transforms into a subtropical climate in the central area. The south of Australia, on the other hand, is characterized by a fairly temperate climate.
