Temperature and Suggested Clothing

Although June is one of Australia’s winter months, the climate varies depending on which destination you travel to.

Australia has a tropical climate in the northern region, with an average ‘high’ temperature of 30C in the month of June with average ‘lows’ of 20C.

The bucket-list cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Cairns offer a mild average high of 16C upwards with an average low of around 10C. Visitors are advised to pack layers and a light jacket, so consider a mild British springtime when preparing for your holiday.

If the famous Uluru (Ayers Rock) formation is firmly at the top of your bucket-list, you can expect a day trip with a delightful temperature of around 20C in Australia’s desert region with cool lows of just 5C when the sun sets.

As an extreme variation, high within the snow-covered mountains of New South Wales, June marks the beginning of Australia’s ski season. This makes for a fantastic holiday choice for ski enthusiasts who feel confined by short-haul winter destinations.

When looking at Australia as a whole, the month of June is primarily dry with Perth having the largest risk of rainfall (but not at all comparing to the city’s ‘wet’ season). As a result, visits to Australia in June are a pleasant option for those who struggle with heat abroad.

What’s On in June?

By visiting during Australia’s winter months, you most certainly are not missing out on great experiences. All across the country, an exciting array of annual events are taking place for spectators, shoppers and overall enthusiasts to go and enjoy! Here are some of our favorite events within the month of June:

Vivid Sydney – This festival of light is sure to bring a smile to your face. See Sydney’s monuments brightly lit with a rainbow of colored neon and LED lights. The celebration involves multiple music events and fascinating organized talks in technology, design and innovation.

Australian Longboard Surfing Open – A competition sanctioned by the World Surf League, this fabulous event is the largest longboard competition in Australia and is held annually at Kingscliff, New South Wales.

Barunga Festival – This annual event is held in Barunga, located in the upper Northern Territory and is a proud celebration of Australia’s remote Indigenous culture. An action-packed weekend of sports, musical performances and art, this festival is certainly one to include in your itinerary.

Sydney Film Festival – Filled with glamourous premieres and parties, the Sydney Film Festival is a celebration of directed art. These unique and lesser-known productions are viewed by judges and of course, participants to result in one producer walking away with an incredible cash prize for their masterpiece. This is a fabulous opportunity for the industry to discover emerging talent and to seek inspiration from their peers.

Peak Festival – As previously mentioned, June marks the beginning of Australia’s ski season and this is certainly cause for celebration. Head to the slopes and enjoy 4 days of live music across 10 stages, from cozy and chic lounges to the buzzing main stage!
