Australia weather overview

This island continent is almost as large as the United States and, since weather conditions vary substantially from region to region, we have broken the weather guide down into specific areas. Remember that Australian summers and winters are the reverse of those in Europe, so summer, broadly speaking, is the period from October to March, while April to September are the winter months for Australians.
