When is The Best Time to Visit Perth?
The best time to visit Perth is during spring. From September to November, the city is awash with beautiful colours, and there's little chance of rain ruining any outdoor activities. The only downside is that it's also high season and hotel prices will be at their highest. Try lock in a better rate by booking your flights and accommodation a few months in advance.
If you can handle the heat, book your trip for Perth's summer months. From December to February, temperatures reach 37°C, driving down hotel prices and emptying out the city.
March to May is Perth's autumn and is one of the best times to visit. You won't have as many people in the city compared to spring, plus temperatures start to dip slowly. For budget travellers, there is a slight decrease in hotel prices, and the weather is still perfect for water-based activities.
The least popular time to explore Perth is during its winter months. From June to August, the city experiences heavy rains, putting a stop to many of the outdoor activities. But if you can plan around the storms, you'll save with low hotel and airfare prices.
