The weather in Western Australia varies according to the region. The south of the state benefits from a Mediterranean climate, while northern areas like the Kimberley experience a tropical climate. Northern WA’s dry season runs from June to August, which, when coupled with the mild temperatures in the south, makes winter an ideal time to visit the state. You can expect mild temperatures (daytime averages of around 18 degrees Celsius) in the capital city of Perth, while northern areas like Broome average daytime temperatures of around 29 degrees Celsius, with pleasantly cool evenings.
Winter is also one of the best times of the year to take advantage of Western Australia’s wildlife attractions, like looking out for whale sharks or spotting humpback whales and dolphins at Ningaloo Reef.
North-western Australia’s wet season runs from November through April, bringing sporadic heavy downpours and hot, humid temperatures averaging between 25 to 33 degrees Celsius.
