In summer, northern Australia’s weather is typical of the tropics- hot and wet. Many Northern Territory lodges and stations are closed at this time of year due to the predisposition for cyclones in this region.
The southern states are warm to hot, with temperatures sometimes up to 40 degrees Celsius, (105 F), in central Australia. Sydney, Adelaide, and Melbourne generally experience temperatures between 27 and 33 degrees Celsius – very pleasant indeed. Tasmania, the southernmost state in Australia, is the mildest state during this season.
