When to go
Due to the size of the country there are climate variations for each region. The winter and summer months are usually directly opposite those in the UK. However, in Australia the climate is still mild to hot so it is a country that you can visit at any time of the year.
Central Australia: Alice Springs has a desert climate so it can get very hot, we recommend a visit between March and May
North Territories: Darwin, there is a wet season between November - April when it can become quite humid so we recommend planning your visit during the months between May and December.
Summer there: November - March
Winter there: June - August (this can be cold in the Southern states).
