Brisbane’s pleasant winter climate of June-August makes it an excellent travel destination for outdoor activities, leisurely strolls and experiencing its vibrant culture. While temperatures offer relief from summer heatwaves, don’t expect temperatures cold enough for snow!

According to historical records, one of the coldest mornings ever observed was July 12, 2014 at 6:41am with temperatures dropping as low as 2.6degC – still warm enough for light jacket or sweater wear!

Festival season kicks off in September with the Royal Queensland Show (or Ekka), drawing large crowds. This time is also great to witness jacaranda trees bloom into full lilac bloom across the city and humidity ease off to create a pleasant shoulder season climate, ideal for swimming and beachside relaxation – as well as one of the best chances to catch sight of migrating humpback whales starting their annual migration off the coast.


Brisbane’s subtropical climate can be warm and humid all year round, prone to heatwaves from the desert but generally protected from tropical cyclones due to its location north of the Tropic of Capricorn.

Brisbane is ideal during spring when temperatures are mild and humidity is low, providing ideal conditions for exploring its parks, gardens and cultural events. A visit in fall also proves enjoyable with temperatures remaining milder and the lessening chance of rainfall.

According to Mr Threlfall of the Bureau of Meteorology, it will likely be an average spring. Daytime temperatures should approach long-term average levels while night-time low temperatures will likely remain cooler than average at most sites across Greater Brisbane and some inland regions may experience their lowest spring mean daily minimum temperatures since 1999.


Brisbane summer sun can be extremely intense when combined with high humidity. This is due to dew point (the temperature at which perspiration will evaporate from skin, thus cooling body) changing more slowly than air temperature changes.

Additionally, urban heat islands create more heat during the daytime than ever before – it is crucial that residents wear light, breathable fabrics as well as sunscreen and sunglasses to stay protected.

Casual shorts and t-shirts are worn at cafes and pubs, while jeans or chinos with collared shirts are typical attire at higher-end restaurants and bars. Bring along a lightweight jacket for those nights when temperatures dip into the teens; water-resistant hiking boots should also be packed if any outdoor activities will take place during this time; additionally it is an excellent time to witness whale migration from Antarctica – typically from June until October!

However, this still ranks among one of the best times to visit Brisbane!
