When to go
Adelaide

Sharing its latitude with Greece, Adelaide has hot, dry summers (from December to February) with average temperatures of 28 degrees Celsius, although it can reach above 40 degrees Celsius. Winters (from June to August) are cool and windy, with average daily temperatures of 15 degrees. For a happy medium, the milder weather in spring or autumn is more comfortable. If weather isn’t an issue, the city’s thriving festival season kicks off in February with the Adelaide Fringe followed by WOMADelaide, the Australian World of Music, Arts & Dance festival, in March. The cooler weather also makes a trip to the Outback or Kangaroo Island a more comfortable experience.

Australian Customs is strict about what food, plant and animal products you can bring into the country. In particular, if you are carrying food, declare it on arrival.

Here are a few things to add to your packing list:

  • Passport
