Australia: Climate & Weather


The Australian seasons are the opposite to those of the northern hemisphere and there are variations in climate between the different areas of this vast country.

In the north, with a climate that is definitely more tropical, the wet and dry seasons simply alternate with little temperature difference between the two (around 22°C in the winter and 30°C in the summer).

The interior of the continent is mainly desert therefore very dry and hot during the day with temperatures that plunge at night. Winter is also cold in the south, especially in Tasmania and in the mountains.

You can therefore visit at any time of the year by carefully picking your area: From December to February (Australian summer) you will probably prefer the south, then between June and August (winter) the north would be very pleasant as well as the centre with its more temperate climate.
