Why Autumn is a great time to visit Australia
Events and festivals are plentiful during Autumn in Australia, and the cooler weather means it’s a wonderful time to enjoy everything it has to offer whether it’s food, wine or culture that tickles your fancy.
It’s an ideal time to take a self-drive holiday to see outdoor attractions as well, as mild weather makes vehicle travel a lot more comfortable.
