Hot Dry Zone with warm winter
The best time to visit is in the southern winter, when warm days with
endless sunshine are guaranteed (well, almost!) and a rainy day is unlikely.
For example, in Longreach,
in July , the mean daily maximum temperature averages about 23 deg C,
with more than 9 hours of sunshine each day. 29 dry days are usual in
July, with mostly light falls on the other two days. Heat stress and dehydration
can be problems in the hotter months - if you really need to do something
active in summer, around dawn is the best (coolest) time of day. Longreach
January minimum temperature averages 23.1 deg C and the daily maximum
temperature usually reaches around 37 degrees C.
