About Autumn in Australia
Autumn in most parts of Australia is from March to May. The Tropical North’s wet season extends through April and many tourist attractions may be closed for the season, making May a better time to plan your visit to the Kimberley region or Darwin.
Cairns and The Whitsundays can be hit with tropical storms during this period, but the Southern Great Barrier Reef is not usually affected. In the south of Australia, autumn brings cooler days with occasional rain. There are many exciting festivals and events on during this period, making it an ideal time to see our capital cities or head to our wine regions for a vintage celebration.
While autumn is generally a pleasant and uncrowded time to visit, be aware that the Easter holiday period (varying dates between March and April) will often mean local families are enjoying a vacation. Check the local school holidays calendar for more information on break periods.
THINGS TO DO IN AUSTRALIA’S AUTUMN
Get your foodie fix in Melbourne
Melbourne is well-known for its culinary scene, making it a food lover’s paradise. Autumn is a great time to indulge with the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival held in the city and the Grampians Grape Escape taking place just three hours west of Melbourne.
See Canberra change colour
In Canberra, autumn is marked by the changing of the leaves. Take a stroll along the foreshore of Lake Burley Griffin to see the colours reflected in the water and enjoy a steamy glass of mulled wine at a pop-up wine bar (locations vary).
Watch turtles hatch in the Southern Great Barrier Reef
While Cairns and the Whitsundays may be experiencing tropical storms, the Southern Great Barrier Reef is usually far enough south not to be affected. It’s also the end of turtle hatching season here, so visitors can enjoy watching tiny turtles scramble from their nests out to sea.
