The best time to visit Australia all depends on where you’re going and what you want to do.
One of Australia’s most popular tourist attractions is the Great Barrier Reef. While the temperatures are warm year-round, the best time to visit is in the summer or spring. While it is the wet season, the rain keeps away the large crowds that flock to the coast in the drier winter months.
If you’re after picture-perfect days at the Gold Coast‘s famous beaches, plan your trip during the summer months (December to February).
For wine lovers, the best time to visit Australia’s 60 wine regions is in the autumn, From April to June, you’ll be in time for the many harvest festivals.
With only two weeks up your sleeve, you want to make sure you prioritize the things you want to see in Australia and the type of travel most suited to you.
When considering any trip, but particularly one such as this, there are some important questions you need to ask yourself. Do you prefer:
• Cities or country areas
• Coastal or the outback
• Adventure travel or food and wine
• Relaxation or the party scene
• Historical sites or sporting events
The answers to these questions will go a long way towards making sure you give yourself the best chance to have a richly rewarding Australia travel experience.
