I went solo in Dec 09/Jan10 and love it. Australia is a beautiful country, it’s their summer around that time, so it’s hot and humid. But, regardless people are super friendly and you’ll have a great time.
Depends on what weather u like.
December – February is Summer and quite hot in most parts of Aus esspecially NT & North QLD..
March – May is Autumn and it is probably our wet season.. The temp is a bit cooler..
June – August – Winter – It can get quite cold. The best places would be NT or North QLD (It’s also probably our wet season..
September – November – Spring – My favourite season.. it’s quite warm but Sept can be a bit cold at night..
Hope this helps u
Southern parts of Australia, best to go in spring or summer ( best months November – February). If you are looking at hitting the top end (Eg Darwin, Cairns, Townsville) The best time to visit that part of the country is in the Dry season, which generally runs May through to about October. The rest of the year is the wet (they dont have 4 seasons up there) and you only have to step out the door to be drenched in sweat.
