When planning your visit to Australia, it’s important to keep in mind that the seasons there are reversed: December to February are Australia's summer months, and June to August is winter. Sydney can reach scorching temperatures during its summer months; if you want to enjoy a more balanced, moderate climate, October to November and March to April are the ideal windows for your trip.
