When is the Best Time to Visit Brisbane?

To increase your chance of finding and travelling on cheap flights to Brisbane, avoid the school holidays. Much of March, April, June, July, October and the Christmas holiday period is a popular time for families travelling north on flights to Brisbane. As a result, airfare to Brisbane increases as well as rates at hotels and resorts. The city's attractions are also at their busiest and traffic congestion can make it hard to move around the city.

However, if you book your tickets to Brisbane around the school holidays in April and May, it's one of the best times of year to visit the city. You'll miss the price increase in flights to Brisbane, and the city's weather is at it's best. Temperatures are not too hot or too cold, making it ideal for outdoor activities.

If you are travelling with your family and can't avoid the school or end-of-year holidays, book your return flights to Brisbane well in advance. You'll have better luck at locking in lower airfare prices which will give you more room in your holiday budget for activities around the city.
