Best Seasons for Your Road Trip in a Caravan
The rainy season (November to April) brings humid afternoons and monsoonal rains. Still, it is suitable to travel as the rains last only for about an hour and the electric storms are breath-taking. The dry season (May-October) may offer better travelling conditions. The scorching temperatures in summer (November-February) make caravan travel unsuitable.
It is always a great time to travel through Melbourne, as it enjoys fairly mild weather throughout the year. The city rarely receives any snow, making the winter a superb time for a holiday too.
Summer (December-February) is Sydney’s busy tourist season. The mild winter (June-August) is its rainiest period and during this period, there is less crowd, fewer tourists and better deals. The autumn and spring are great seasons with mild temperature and fewer crowds.
As the summer ends and autumn begins to shed Adelaide (February-March) the city brightens with a lively season. This is the best time to travel in and around Adelaide in a caravan.
This is a year round destination with pleasant weather for the most part of the year, and thus suitable for caravan travel any time. Autumn (April-May) is the best season of all, with very less humidity and rainfall.
The best time to visit Perth in a caravan would be spring (September-November) when the sunny days are uninterrupted by rain. Summer (December-February) in Perth Is marked by scorching temperatures, making caravan travel unsuitable.
Cairns is at its most pleasant in winter (June-August), with dry weather featuring clear skies and calm winds.
