Peak season

As the Australian continent spans such a huge area, the peak tourist season on one side of the country is different from that on the other. The hot, summer months of December through to February are ideal along the southern and eastern coastlines, with clear, blue skies and lots of festivals in full swing. Many locals are on their annual vacation during this period and both accommodation and flights get booked out well in advance. The tropical north experiences its peak tourist season from June through to August, when many North Americans and Europeans are on their annual Summer holidays. This coincides with the region’s “dry” season when rain is scarce and there are no jellyfish in the water. This is also an ideal time for scuba diving and snorkelling along the Great Barrier Reef, with visibility at its clearest. The cool Winter months are also a popular time throughout Central Australia and Uluru, and while daytime temperatures are mild, they can plummet at night.

Off season

In the south of the country, the off season is throughout the cold winter, when drizzly skies prevail and temperatures drop considerably. While you will get the best hotel and flight deals during this time, the milder Spring or Autumn months are a good alternative. In the north of the country the “wet” season from November through to May sees heavy daily downpours and occasional cyclones, as well as jellyfish that make swimming at some beaches impossible.

When is the best time to book a flight to Australia?

The best deals on flights to Australia are always found by booking early, but if you are travelling outside of school holiday months you can also secure some cheap tickets at the last minute. If you are travelling over the summer holidays, cheap flights to Australia can be difficult to come by, particularly if you are heading to the southern regions, but there are a few good deals over the quieter Spring and Autumn periods.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Most of Australia’s major airports have shuttle bus services that operate into the city centre, either dropping guests directly at hotels or designated meeting points. Their schedule normally coincides with all incoming flights and are a cheap and reliable option.

Both Sydney and Brisbane airports also have trains that service multiple stations within the city and its outskirts. This is a great option to avoid traffic delays, particularly if you arriving or departing during peak “rush” hours.

The most expensive, but convenient, way to get from Australia’s airports into the city centres is with a metered taxi. This is a fast and reliable option that will deliver you straight to your door.
