travel guide to australia
Located in the Southern Hemisphere, Australia is a country, an island and a continent all in one. It’s home to some incredibly diverse landscapes, more than 10,000 beaches and some of the most beautifully remote places you can imagine.
Best time to visit Australia 
The best time to visit Australia is different depending on where you’re planning to visit. For the southern half of the country (including VIC, NSW, SA, TAS & the bottom half of WA) visiting during the summer time from October to March offers beautiful sunny weather and perfect conditions for exploring the country’s natural wonders.

However, the top half of the country (including QLD, NT & the top half of  WA) experiences a more tropical climate, visit from April to September to for nice warm weather during the dry season and optimal conditions for getting out and around.
