The Western Australian climate is one of the most diverse in Australia from the tropical in the north to temperate south.
The southern half of the State has 4 distinct seasons spring, summer, autumn and winter, but in the north there are only two, the 'wet' and the 'dry'.
The 'Dry' season or northern winter, extends from April to September, and it is characterized by long days of sunshine and blue skies. Temperatures range from 24 degrees Celsius overnight to around 34 degrees Celsius during the day.
The coastal temperatures vary little during the day, while the interior may reach 40 degrees in the day and then drop to zero in the night.
The northern summer, or 'wet' season (October-March), has temperatures in the mid to high 30s and high humidity. Visitors from cooler climates may find this challenging, however many Europeans love the balmy combination of heat, humidity and long days of sunshine.
South of the Tropic of Capricorn the weather is milder with the southern coastal areas averaging a maximum of around 32 degrees in summer and 14 degrees in the winter. Perth enjoys more sunny days per year than any other Australian capital city.
