When to go
Spring (Sept – Nov) and fall (March – May) are generally considered the most comfortable time to visit but they’re also the busiest times to travel. Spring is also ideal for diving and surfing.
The Northern territory and Queensland is very hot and humid in the summer with heavy rainfall. Winter is drier with much more comfortable temps, never getting very cold.
In the south, Victoria (Melbourne) and South Australia have hot summers and more or less mild winters, but it still gets cold enough for jackets and indoor heating. Think 40’s – 50s F (10 C)
Respect of indigenous traditions and sacred lands and minimizing your effect on reef bleaching. Check to ensure tour operators you choose are conscientious of this and research your sunscreen.
