We have gathered travel information, facts and weather in Australia information for your trip. We hope this page helps you plan a great trip to this beautiful country!
Australian beaches consistently rank among the best and most beautiful in the world. It is no wonder that 85% of the population lives near this incredible coastline. The island country is a paradise for surfing, water sports, and sun-worshipping, but Australia’s unbeatable beach culture isn’t the only great thing. There is Aboriginal culture and many natural wonders, including the Great Barrier Reef and the Outback. You could also spend days discovering the allure of its bustling cities like Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth. In Australia, no day will be the same as the one before. So many fascinating things on one vacation won’t seem enough to see and do. So when is your next trip planned for “down under”?

Weather in Australia varies, as it is such a large country and has so many regions for exploring but also so many different climates. We think June to August is the best time to visit in the northern regions, as it can get quite hot during other months. April-May or September-October are best for the southern cities, so try to look at a route that dips down into the south to help you avoid the high heat of the north, if doing a country tour.
