Winter in Australia is the season from June to the end of August. It's generally defined by shorter and colder days. For those outgoing souls wanting to get away and get active this can lead to fabulous fun with the vision of meals of warm soups and evenings sitting by open fires. Maybe even a red wine! Yes, rugging up and getting away in Winter can be ideal in Australia, especially if you are keen to get away from the crowds.
The majority of people think of holidays as sun and summer. So, in winter some people take off and head overseas to warmer climates or north to Queensland for warmer days. While some head to the snow fields. Others save their holidays to be used in the warmer climates. I love Winter. Weekends at the coast beaches and then the contrast of some time in the snowy alpine areas are always a favourite.
And to help your creative juices on ideas to get you and yours out and about we've got some warming options and ideas for your Winter getaway.
