WHAT TO DO WHEN

The first thing people often ask when planning a trip to Australia is… When is the best time to go? The honest answer is, our sheer scale and diversity of environment and climate across the continent means, for Australia, guests are spoilt for choice, at any time of the year.

This part of our website helps guide you across over 250 experiences and easily sorts them by season and by lodge, so guests can plan by activity preference, or by time of year – summer, autumn, winter or spring.
