AnchorClimate

The climate of Australia varies widely due to its large geographical size, but by far the largest part of Australia is desert or semi-arid.

Seasons:
  • Summer: December – February
  • Autumn (Fall): March – May
  • Winter: June – August
  • Spring: September – November

Australia’s “most liveable city”, Brisbane is the capital of Queensland, the Sunshine State. While Brisbane is a vibrant but relaxed city with so much to see and do, it is also the gateway to the sun, surf and beaches of the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.

The weather in Brisbane is comfortable and sub-tropical. The city of Brisbane enjoys a very enviable climate of brilliant hot summers and clear mild winters. These enticing attributes ensure that Brisbane is idyllic for visitors all year round.  Seasons in Australia are the reverse of North America and Europe. For example, Christmas day usually spent at the beach or around the pool with a cool drink in hand!

Summer is December to February, Autumn (fall) March to May, Winter June to August, and Spring September to November.  Average Temperatures: Summer: 29C maximum (84F), 21C minimum (70F); Winter: 22C maximum (72F), 10C minimum (50F).  Water Temperature: Summer 25C (77F), Winter 19C (66F).
