Off Season Down Under: Winter in Australia
Heading to Australia for a summer holiday means arriving Down Under at the start of their winter. But even though it snows in the Australian mountains, many popular destinations, including the Great Barrier Reef, are warm enough to comfortably explore. While you might want to skip Melbourne in the off season (it's cold and rainy), Sydney is still pleasant. And the Australian winter is a great time to explore the Northern Territory's Outback, which gets too hot in summer.
