Australia Travel Guide

Australia truly epitomizes ‘The Great Outdoors’ and is filled with experiences that will carry you across red-hued desert plains past Uluru or to the Great Barrier Reef and beyond. Truth be told, you could spend a lifetime exploring Australia and barely scratch the surface. If ever there was a time to start your journey through the Land Down Under, that time is now.

  1. Peak Season

    December to February

    For all visitors, it is important to note that during the summer months in Australia – it sizzles. Temperatures can soar to 35°C in Alice Springs, Sydney, Broome and even down south in Melbourne. Prices will increase for flights and accommodation, however, there will be plenty of events to enjoy. These vary from summer music festivals across the country to sporting events like the Australian Open, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Mardi Gras in Sydney, the Tamworth Country Music Festival and the Perth International Arts Festival.

  2. Low Season

    June to August

    While the winter months between June to August are typically known as the low season and characterised by cooler temperatures, it’s important to remember that Australia is huge – and temperatures will vary greatly. In cities further south like Melbourne or Hobart, the average temperatures will drop to 4°C. Up north in Cairns, winter temperatures will average 18°C (this is considered to be ‘cold’ by the standards of Queenslanders). Visitors travelling to Australia during this time will enjoy fewer crowds and lower flight or hotel prices.
