April - May
Visiting Australia from April through September is said to be one of the best times to see the country with average daily temperatures ranging from 66F - 88F with barely any rain. The summer crowds start thinning out and the weather is pleasant, making it the perfect time to travel around the country and see the different regions and visit the National Parks. Towards the end of the May, the temperatures in the south begin to drop with highs in the mid to upper 60`s and low 50`s at night. The days are still warm and sunny but the nights get cooler as the autumn colors begin the change. Ningaloo Reef is a great destination between April and June where visitors can take boat trips and swim with whale sharks. The north areas including Darwin and Cairns are still very hot from April to September as well as wet with the monsoon season.
