Best Times to Visit Perth

The best time to visit Perth is in September, October or November when the city is aglow with the colors and perfumes of spring and sunny days are uninterrupted by rain. December through February constitutes Perth's summertime and is marked by scorching temperatures. The season that stretches from March to May is probably the second-best time to visit – its warm days are perfect for the beach and other outdoor activities. June through August is low season here thanks to chilly climes (for Perth) and lots of rain.

September to November

The best time to visit Perth is from September to November, in other words, during springtime Down Under when the flowers in Kings Park bloom and events stud the calendar. Average temperatures this time of year range from the mid-80s to the upper 90s, but it's been known to reach 100 degrees. Even with the sweltering temps, hotel prices are at their highest this time of year. 

Key Events:

 

December to February 

The months between December and February are Perth's hottest, with temperatures rising to 100 degrees. Although the temperatures creep up this time of year, visitors will see hotel prices drop a bit from the months between September and November.

Key Events:

March to May 

March, April and May constitute Perth's autumn, and this season is characterized by temperatures in the upper 90s, but with fewer crowds compared to high season's September, October and November. If you're hoping for a slight break in hotel prices and weather ideal for water activities, this is an optimal season to visit. 

Key Events:

June to August

Perth's winter months experience heavy rains and storms and temperatures in the 70s. Although the temps are comfortable, the rainy season tends to inhibit some water activities. On the other hand, hotel prices are at their lowest this time of year.
