Best time to visit Oceania

Our verdict

The best time to visit Oceania is March-May

Are you looking for the best time to visit Oceania? Well, you’re in the right place! Although Oceania is a great destination to visit almost all year round, March-May is the best time to go due to its perfect climate conditions. Around this time of year, flights and accommodation can also be cheaper as it is outside of key peak holiday seasons if you book well enough in advance.

During the peak of the warmer months, temperatures in Sydney, Oceania can rise to a maximum of around 28℃ (83℉). In the colder months such as July, temperatures usually get down to an average minimum of 10℃ (50℉). Temperatures often differ in other areas of Oceania though so you can find out more information about this below.

If you want to get the most out of your time visiting Oceania, or you’re just afraid of the dark, the days in December are usually the longest between sunrise and sunset. You don’t want to get wet on your holiday, do you? Well if you’re trying to avoid the rain, then steer clear of Oceania in February. Head there in July instead if you want to increase your chances of not being rained on.
