Canberra: Winter Sun

Australia's Bustling Capital

Canberra enjoys a temperate climate year-round and is a perfect destination for holidaymakers who fancy a spot of winter sun. Australian summer runs from December to February while their winter extends from June into August. Canberra’s sub-tropical climate gives an average temperature of roughly 20°C during December, meaning plenty of winter sun so you won’t have to bring scarves and sweaters if you are looking to spend a Christmas in Canberra. Also be sure to stick out the winter sun and enjoy the spectacular new year’s eve celebrations, a giant street party in the heart of the city. See fireworks over City Hill, enjoy live entertainment in Civic Square or dance the night away at the many parties in Garema Place.
