About Winter in Australia
Widely known for its red outback and golden sand beaches, many visitors are surprised to learn that a white winter is common in Australia. The Australian Alps, in the south of the country, are home to great ski fields for winter sports and après enthusiasts.
If you don’t like the cold, winter is the ideal time to visit the north, including Darwin, the Top End and the Kimberley. You’ll get balmy days and cooler evenings, ideal for getting outdoors and exploring the incredible natural landscapes of the region.
Cairns and the Whitsundays have warm days, low humidity and excellent water temperature, perfect for discovering the Great Barrier Reef. It’s also whale watching season, so head out on a boat to spot magnificent humpbacks as they migrate north.
THE ‘WET SEASON’: NOVEMBER – APRIL
The wet season in Australia’s north is characterised by very hot days, high humidity, monsoonal rains and possible cyclones, but it’s not without its drawcards. Visit Katherine at the end of the wet season to see spectacular Nitmiluk Gorge at full flow.
Many areas in Kakadu may be closed due to risks of flood, but you can still see the thundering waterfalls of the area on a scenic helicopter flight. In Tropical North Queensland, monsoon troughs and storms are more common, but it very rarely rains all day and you’ll usually enjoy sunny days with a storm in the afternoon or evening.
The colours of the rainforest are at their brightest and the waterfalls are full and spectacular. The Great Barrier Reef is calm at this time of year, so it’s great for snorkelling and diving, although you do have to wear a wetsuit to protect from stingers.
THE ‘DRY SEASON’: MAY – OCTOBER
Head to the Top End during the dry season for clear blue skies, warm days and cool nights. Many visitors find the best time to come is at the end of the wet season or beginning of the dry season, when everything is still lush and green.
In Tropical North Queensland, the daily temperatures are lower, but still reach the high 20s (low 80s) and rarely drop below 17 degrees Celsius (62 degrees Fahrenheit). Rainfall is low and you can expect gorgeous sunny days, making it the most popular time to visit the region.
The ocean is free of marine stingers during this time, so you can swim almost anywhere without nets or suits for protection.
