When to Go

You can visit Western Australia year-round, though the weather will influence your activities and sightseeing. Perth enjoys more sunny days than any other Australian capital city. Summer (December–February) in Perth is hot and temperatures can rise to 40°C (100°F), but the locals love it and flock to the beaches. Be aware major school and university holidays occur at this time. The Perth International Arts Festival (PIAF) in February is an excellent reason to visit. Weather-wise, March, April, November, and December are most pleasant, with sunny days and warm, comfortable temperatures. July and August are traditionally cool and wet.
