What is the best time to visit Australia?
Australia is a vast country that
spans three time zones, not including 'daylight saving'. It has a range of
temperate climates, that includes winter skiing in the south, through the balmy
waters of the Great Barrier Reef, to the tropical rainforest of the far north.
There are deserts and arid zones, monsoonal wet seasons, whilst residents and
visitors can experience temperatures from below zero to over 40°C.
When visiting any part of Australia, you will need to plan according to the
seasons and expected weather conditions. In a country that experiences drought,
floods and cyclones it is always prudent to plan ahead.
