Walking Seasons in Australia

Because Australia has definable seasons and lots of temperature ranges, there is always Great Walks on offer across different parts of the country throughout the year.

For walks in the southern part of Australia (see specific months below) the best times are from Spring through Summer into Autumn, whereas for those on the mainland, the best times tend to be from Autumn through to Spring.

As our walking seasons can be short, demand for peak times can mean some walks are booked out well in advance. Get in early if you are able to!

The seasons here in Australia are opposite those in the Northern Hemisphere, so when it’s Spring in the North, it’s Autumn (Fall) here in Australia.

As these walking seasons are relatively short, demand for peak times can mean some walks are booked out well in advance. Get in early if you are able to!
