Australia is one of the most important global tourism destinations. It is a country rich in beautiful landscapes that embrace contemporary architecture. Australia is famous for its many cities, which include a wide range of prominent tourist attractions.
Australia is a country and a continent at the same time surrounded by the Indian and Pacific Ocean. Australia is famous for its forests, wildlife and nature reserves. Canberra is the capital of Australia, but Sydney is the heart of Australia and an important tourist and economic destination for Australia, where water channels, lakes, parks and gardens are all over the city.

Climate in Australia
There are big differences in temperature all over Australia, in the north we find the temperatures are very high, and there are other areas that are colder, and it does not snow in any of the Australian cities but it does fall in the Australian Alps.
Climate conditions in Australia vary due to the vast extent of the country. We find that rain falls throughout the year on the eastern coast due to the wind blowing from the ocean and colliding with the mountains of eastern Australia. In summer, rain falls in the center of the continent, and is almost non-existent in the western half of it.
About a third of Australia’s area is tropical and the rest is in the temperate zone. The coldest areas are in the southeast corner of the main part of the country and in Tasmania. The following table shows the months and climatic seasons in Australia:
Summer December to February, Autumn March to May, Winter June to August, Spring September – November.

Best times to travel to Australia
The best time to travel to Australia depends precisely on which part of the country you are traveling to, and you must remember that Australia is in the southern hemisphere, so the seasons are opposite to those in the northern hemisphere.
Do know that the southern part of the country, such as Sydney and Melbourne, is usually more popular during the summer months from December and January to February, so it will be more crowded and more expensive. Then you can go in October and November, March or April to avoid the crowds and save money, and don’t worry the temperatures in those months will still be nice.
If you are planning a trip to the northern region of Queensland, you can go in the winter months of June, July or August. Winter is also a good time to visit hot desert regions, such as Uluru.
