Australia’s Weather & Climate


When will the Australian climate be most comfortable for you based on your planned vacation activities?  Here are some useful Facts and Resources on Australia’s Climate Averages, Rainfalls and Water Temperatures to help you decide.
 Seasons in Australia
Spring: September – November (lovely)
Summer: December – February (hot)
Autumn: March – May (lovely)
Winter: June – August (cool, but not really cold)

 Temperatures in Australia
As a starting point, its important to know that the size of Australia compared to the USA is only slightly smaller in land mass – so Australia is huge!  So there are large variances in temperatures across Australia on any day.  The further north you travel (closer to the equator) the hotter it gets, which is the opposite for the USA.
 The coldest it gets in Australia’s most visited tourist destinations is around 32F (freezing) in places like Uluru or Canberra during winter nights in July/August.  There are not any snowbound cities in Australia.

Australia Rainfall (Tropics)

Wet Season: November – May  (Most rainfall occurs in January, February & March.)
Dry Season: June – October

The “Tropics of Australia” is the region north of the “Tropic of Capricorn” (approximately the top third of Australia) and includes cities like Cairns & Darwin.  Rainfall is an important consideration if you want to spend some of your vacation exploring the Outback at Kakadu National Park in Australia’s far north – the “wet season” is not the time to do it.  However if Scuba Diving the Great Barrier Reef is more up your alley, then it won’t matter if you travel in the wet season – either way you’re going to get wet and have fun!

Stinger Season: November – May  (wet season)

Little marine critters and jellyfish that sting are collectively known “Stingers”.  They generally don’t affect the Great Barrier Reef.  Stingers aren’t overly energetic animals and have not caused any problems around the reef and islands but occur mainly around the rivers, creeks and beaches north of, and around, Bundaberg. They are easy to avoid, but cause discomfort if you are stung.  The more serious ones are ‘Box Jellyfish’ which have been known to be lethal.   Stinger season is from typically November through May.  If there are stingers present there will most likely be signs posted.  At these locations you will need to swim inside the stinger enclosures provided or wear a stinger suit.  A stinger suit is like a ‘sun suit’ – a long leg, long sleeve, one piece swimsuit typically made from lycra (or similar).
