When is The Best Time to Visit Brisbane?
The best time to visit Brisbane is during its autumn season. From March to May there is little rainfall, and it's scorching temperatures start to dip. You'll have an easier time finding hotel deals, and the city's calendar is packed with events like the Brisbane Comedy Festival and Bike Week.
June to August is winter in Brisbane, but temperatures hover around 15°C. With mostly sunny days, the city is full of large outdoor events. Plan your trip around the Food and Wine Festival or the Queensland Music Festival. The only downside about visiting during this time is that the crowds will push up hotel rates.
September to November is spring and marks one of Brisbane's biggest events. The annual Brisbane Festival attracts hordes of local and international travellers. If you're planning to visit during this festival, book a few months in advance to lock in prices on airfare and hotel rooms before they skyrocket.
The least popular time of year to visit Brisbane is during its summer months. From December to February, temperatures reach highs of 30°C, and heavy rains and thunderstorms are common. If you can handle the less than perfect weather, you'll have the city's attractions to yourself and save with low hotel rates.
