The peak months in Brisbane are between the latter days of Autumn to Spring, which is usually from May to November. These are the ideal months for whale-watching, and most festivals are happening between July and September. Traveling to Brisbane for the first time? Know the Road Rules.


Tourists will probably be looking forward to spending their holidays in Brisbane in December, but watch out for high humidity and plenty of rainfall during the summer months of January and February. If you wish to brave the heat and thunderstorms, make sure you have a rain jacket to go with your hats and sunscreen.


There might still be high temperatures and rainfall in March, but you can look forward to cooler climes in April and May. Just remember that cooler doesn't mean less rainfall so prepare yourself with a rain jacket and warm clothes for the evenings.


The humidity is much lower in June as Winter comes in. July and August usually gets scattered rainfall, but the days are pleasantly warm. It can still get quite cool in the evenings, so pack several warm clothing.


You can look forward to great festivals in September and great camping weather in October and November. Spring brings in busloads of tourists, so make early reservations on the motorhome for your self-drive holiday as well as your stay at campgrounds. MyDriveHoliday has awesome vehicles in Campervan Hire Brisbane , and you can find great campgrounds in Caravan Parks In Brisbane .
