Autumn is a wonderful time to be in Australia. In the north, the rainstorms have calmed down, leaving lush rainforests and fast-flowing waterfalls to explore. Roads in the region begin to reopen following the heavy rains, so it’s easier to move about.
Down south, the climate remains bright and sunny, rainfall has dropped and so have the temperatures. With peak season over, prices have fallen and there are fewer crowds, unless you visit during the Easter break.
March is the beginning of whale-watching season off the coast of Victoria, and it’s also the ideal time to visit those famous Australian wineries, as the leaves are beginning to turn and there are a number of festivities to celebrate vintage. It’s also a brilliant time to head into the interior.
