So When Is The Best Time To Visit?


Autumn and Spring provides excellent camping weather, with their warm days and cool nights. You can look forward to clear blue skies in April and May, and get a chance to go whale watching anytime from September to November

Summer means great heat in Perth. The tourists come for some holiday sun in December, although the temperature can get very high in January and February. You'll need to bring hats, sunglasses and plenty of sunscreen during this season. 

Winter is the wettest period. June and July already gets a lot of rainfall, but August is the most rain-soaked month in Perth. Pack a rain jacket and several warm clothes if traveling during this season.

Remember that motorhomes and campgrounds get booked out fast so it is best to make early reservations. Find the best motorhome with Campervan Hire Perth and get a list of the best places to stay with Caravan Parks In Perth.
