Goody Bye Summer – Winter Activity’s

Goody Bye Summer – Winter Activity’s. With Summer coming to a end in Australia the weather begins to cool down and a beach day just won’t cut it. Here’s some activity’s you can participate in this autumn and winter.

Visit the Northern Territory 

Winter in most parts of Australia is from June to August. Winter falls within the ‘dry season’ for the Northern Territory, making it an ideal time to visit the country’s north, including Darwin, the Top End and the Kimberley.

The Northern Territory stretches so far from north to south — approximately 1,600km from top to bottom — that it covers 2 distinct climate areas. There’s the warm, tropical Top End and the dry, semi-arid Red Center.

The Top End, which includes DarwinKatherineKakadu and Arnhem Land, has a tropical climate with two seasons: the Dry and the Wet. Each season lasts for about six months.

The Red Center, including Alice SpringsTennant Creek and the Uluru region, has a semi-arid climate. There are four seasons: summer, autumn, winter and spring. Temperatures can climb during summer, and winter nights can be frosty.

Take the opportunity to learn about Indigenous life in Australia.

One of the least inhabited regions of the world, Arnhem Land is home to ancient Aboriginal culture, stunning wilderness landscapes, and world-renowned barramundi fishing. Experience the local culture with more than 2,000 Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people who gather to share knowledge and culture through music, visual art, storytelling, dance, forums, and workshops at the annual Garma Festival, a celebration of Yolngu life and culture held in remote, northeast Arnhem Land every August.

Tours To The Kimberleys From Broome

Go where the Outback meets the tropics.

Three hours south of Darwin, Katherine is where the Outback meets the tropics, and the ancient landscape and Aboriginal culture meet modern-day adventurers and cowboys. Take in an Aboriginal cultural experience, an outback show, and explore the Nitmiluk National Park (formerly Katherine Gorge National Park).

The biggest event on the Katherine calendar is the Katherine Show and Rodeo, which happens every July. To experience healing waters, soak in the thermal pools on the banks of the Katherine River or head one hour south to the famous thermal pool at Mataranka.

Visit The East Coast

Just because the cold weather has rolled in doesn’t mean the fun needs to stop on the East Coast, Sydney is abundant with winter activity’s.

Winter is the only time of year when you can walk under the romantic Japanese cherry blossom trees at full bloom. Auburn Botanic Gardens’ Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates the season with an epic festival (you’ll have to wait until August – though mark the dates in your calendar so you don’t miss out).
