When is the best time to visit New South Wales?

Much of New South Wales enjoys a mild sub-tropical climate with humid warm summers and mild winters. Sydney and the Blue Mountains region are generally 4 or 5 degrees cooler than the Central Coast and northern NSW Hinterland region including Byron Bay.

The summer months bring the highest temperatures, great for enjoying the beautiful beaches, but January to March can be humid and also bring rainfall. The wettest month is generally in June, but winter is otherwise known for its cold drier weather patterns. Spring brings with it, fine mild days perfect for hiking and still cool enough to enjoy a red wine by the fire at night.
