When to go
There isn’t a bad time to visit Australia, there are however some things you should consider. When it’s winter here in the UK, it’s summer in Australia. Many consider the best time to go is the Spring or Autumn, when you research airfares, public holidays and the climate.
The northern states are typically warm all year round, while the southern states have colder winters. December to February is summer, March to May is autumn, June to August is winter and September to November is spring.
While there is never a bad time to visit Australia, 2017 is going to be extra special. There is a calendar packed with unique-to-Oz events throughout the year. There’s the Sydney Mardi Gras, February to March, music festivals such as Blues on Broadbeach or Falls Music & Arts Festival and not forgetting The Ashes. The 65th series has high stakes for England’s Cricket Team!
