The South West is a year-round destination and we enjoy a temperate climate with four seasons. The summer sunshine provides perfect beach weather with a maximum temperature of around 32 degrees, and winters are pleasantly cool and mild with an average of 14 degrees.
There’s an ideal season to visit for the experiences you want:
Charming inland drives, when golden vineyards contrast against a backdrop of green rolling farmlands. Adventure outdoors – mild days are great for mountain biking or hiking, and the mellow winds mean surf conditions are good.
Spotting migrating humpback whales. You can spot whales from any high vantage points, or take a whale watching tour from Albany, Augusta or Dunsborough. Taking time out with loved ones; there’s hearty comfort food, good red wine and plenty of cosy accommodation for a winter retreat.
Spotting a beautiful array of wildflowers – there’s over 8000 species in Australia’s South West. Bushwalking - the weather is mild and wildflowers add another dimension to trails.
