Australia is at the top of many travelers’ lists for many reasons, including breathtaking scenery, unusual wildlife, and its remote setting. When planning a trip to one of the southernmost countries, visitors should take many factors into consideration. First of all, airfares to the country are cheapest between April and August. April through September is the most pleasant time to visit the continent, as these months offer temperatures between 66 and 88 degrees with little rainfall. However, these are also the peak months of tourism, so many tours and accommodations will be booked far in advance and will be more expensive than normal. Frommer’s encourages travelers to visit in September and October when it is still warm but cool enough so that travelers can explore comfortably.
