Australasia holiday weather

The northern areas of Australasia lying between the Equator and the Tropic of Capricorn experience a predominantly tropical climate. This is largely an equatorial climate across northern Australia and the islands to the north of it including Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. These areas typically experience hot and wet weather throughout the year.

Australia sees a wide variation of climates: its east coast is typically warm temperate meaning rain throughout the year, but mostly focused in the summer months of December, January and February. Winters are typically mild with very occasional cold spells.
