Australia is encircled by the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean in Oceania, famed for its tropical white beaches such as Byron Beach, unbelievable islands like the Whitsundays, and breathtaking landforms like Uluru.

With a land area of 7 692 024 km2, it would be physically impossible to see all the main tourist attractions in Australia in one visit, but with some planning, you'll get to see all the main sights.

When Is The Best Time To Visit Australia?

Australia's seasons are quite different from most countries because of its geographical location.

The country's summer months are from December until February, with temperatures ranging between 20°C to 37°C in most cities. This is an expensive time to visit Australia, and availability for accommodation is scarce, so you best book well in advance.

For a low-cost trip to Australia, travel in the winter months from June until August, with temperatures ranging between 11°C and 30°C. As a result of the unpredictable weather, tourists tend to avoid traveling in the off-season, so you can find some excellent flight deals, especially on Kiwi.com.

Shoulder seasons are a great low-cost alternative to traveling in the summer. These are between March and May and between September and November. You can find affordable flight deals from many major cities around the world to the most visited Australian destinations during these months. Temperatures aren't too high or too low, and there are barely any crowds; you couldn't ask for much more.

  • Withdrawing money with a foreign bank card in Australia isn't budget friendly unless you have a WISE card, which allows you to withdraw 350 AUD per month. Exchanging physical cash at a bureau de change is favorable if you're a budget, as some places won't even charge commission. Additionally, many stores allow people to pay with debit cards, so you'll always have an option.
  • Like all major touristy places to go, Australia has its fair share of tourist traps, from vehicle hire scams to unlicensed taxis trying to pick up fares at the airport.
  • Australia has lots of public holidays across the year that you should take note of in case you need to book accommodation in advance, including Australia Day (26th of January), Anzac Day (25th of April), and Easter Sunday (9th of April).
