When is the best time of year to visit?
This is a hard question to answer as each time of year brings something different. From November through to April the weather is much warmer and suitable for swimming at some of the beautiful beaches and estuaries. Through the cooler months from May to September we tend to see more wildlife during the day, and the crisp clear air and fragrance of the forest plants make for a very pleasant walking experience. Our autumn months March through to May are sublime with pleasant temperatures, good opportunities to see wildlife and excellent light for taking photos, while September to November is our spring so the wildflowers are out on display.
What is the climate like?
Our summer time can be quite hot from December through to end of February with temperatures varying but usually averaging around 26 degrees Celcius during the day and dropping during the evenings to a nice and cool 14 degrees Celcius.
During winter from June through to end of August we typically see a lot more rain and the temperatures hover around 10 to 14 degrees celcius during the day. Winter is a very pleasant time for walking around the coastal areas.
The autumn months from March to end of may are splendid with beautiful comfortable temperatures and usually great weather. Spring from September to November is very pleasant although we are still seeing frequent rainfalls keeping everything green and beautiful till Christmas.
