In the southern half of Australia the seasons are the opposite of those in the northern hemisphere: spring comes in September, summer is from December to February, autumn runs from March to May, and winter begins in June.
Winter (June-Aug) is high season in Queensland; the water can be chilly - at least to Australians - but its temperature rarely drops below 22°C. April through October is peak visibility time for divers. Summer is hot and sticky across the state. In North Queensland the monsoonal Wet season is from November or December through March or April. It brings heavy rains, high temperatures, extreme humidity, and cyclones. It's no problem to visit then, and the Wet or "Green" season allows an unusual opportunity to explore this region during a truly balmy time of monsoonal calms.
Combine great natural wonders, cities and remote reefs in this classic but inspiring itinerary that showcases Australia’s highlights. Taking in Sydney, The Blue Mountains, Uluru (Ayers Rock) and The Great Barrier Reef, this itinerary really is once in a lifetime journey.

From Sydney you'll collect your hire car and you'll journey north into The Blue Mountains, a scenic journey that takes approximately three hours. UNESCO protected, The Blue Mountains gets its name from the blue mist that rises from the eucalyptus trees, creating an atmospheric moody glow. It's easily one of the most beautiful landscapes in Australia and is ripe for trekking, horse-riding and spotting those all-important kangaroos.During your time in New South Wales we have included a guided exploration of this sensational national park.

The entire region, known as Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park also takes in Kata Tjuta. Rising up from the red dunes, Uluru is undoubtedly one of the world’s most intriguing and spiritual natural wonders. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the most significant regions for Aboriginal cultural heritage.
