The weather in Australia ranges from tropical to arid, making this island continent a year-round destination. The seasons in the Southern Hemisphere run counter to our North American orientation: summer starts in December, autumn in April, winter in June, and spring in September.

Most of Queensland, the Northern Territory and Northwestern Australia have a tropical, monsoonal climate. Winters are pleasantly warm and dry.  Summer days are often extremely hot and typically cool off late in the day by afternoon thunderstorms. The southern half of the continent is largely continental or subtropical. Summers are pleasantly warm to hot and winters are generally cool and mild with uniform precipitation year-round.

Depending on your timeframe and interests, there are sure to be parts of this vast continent that present perfect Australia weather to suit.
