Just mentioning Australia conjures images of the Great Barrier Reef and Sydney Opera House. With gorgeous landscapes, cosmopolitan cities, and world-class surfing; what’s not to love about Australia holidays?
Australia weather varies depending on area and season. Summer time lasts from December to February, and can get very hot with temperatures rising well into the 30s. However this is also rainy season in the far north.
Winter, which runs from June to August, is ideal in the north, although it can get a little cold in the south.
Overall, the best time to visit Australia would probably be from March to May or September to November.
Visit Sydney late February for the city’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. Watch Sydney’s famous Oxford Street become a dazzling demonstration of elaborate costumes, energetic dancing, and rainbow flags.
Take a trip to Adelaide from mid-February to mid-March, for the Adelaide Fringe Festival. Held throughout the city, this festival features everything from cabaret to puppetry.
Head to Woodford at the end of December for the Woodford Folk Festival. With comedy, circus acts, writers’ panels, and folk medicine, music is only part of this legendary festival.
