A travel itinerary
Most people will be more comfortable if they can visit northern and
central Australia during the (southern) winter and go to the high country,
the south coast and Tasmania during our summer. As an example, you could
visit Tasmania (see
Hobart) during summer or Melbourne
in autumn, then travel north via Sydney
as autumn continues. In winter, visit the Great Barrier Reef (see Cairns
climate information),then go to
Ayers Rock/Uluru and Kakadu national park (see Jabiru).
If time permits, go on to Western Australia in the spring, to see the
wildflowers (see Morawa
climate information). Of course, many variations on this theme are possible.
Summer is from December to February; autumn from March to May; winter from June to August; and spring from September to November. For most of the country the hottest month is January.
