When to visit Australia

Australia's climate varies depending on where you are located. The northern part of Australia is closer to the equator and generally much warmer than its Southern Side. Parts of Northern Australia see wet and dry seasons instead of the standard four seasons. In those parts, it is best to visit over the dry season (May to October) for fewer storms and slightly cooler temperatures. However, this is also the peak time to travel. Cities on the Southern side and along the coast see an oceanic climate, reaching pleasant temperatures year-round and not seeing extremes on either end of the temperature spectrum. Being the most southern point, Tasmania sees the coolest temperatures over winter (December to February). Generally, Australia can be visited year-round, with summer (December- February) seeing more crowds.

Getting around Australia

You can get around within the major cities and from one major city to another via buses and trains. There are also options to fly to major cities. Australia is a big country so getting around via car or bus can take time. That being said, there's plenty to see and do on the road. Road trips around Australia are popular.
