What is the weather like in Perth?

Perth enjoys a Mediterranean climate like Southern California, averaging eight hours of sunshine a day, all year round. The average maximum summer temperature is 30C (86F) and 18C (65F) in winter.

The seasons in Perth are the opposite to those in the northern hemisphere - so Christmas "down under" means beach weather, seafood and barbecues. Plus, due to the huge size of Western Australia, the climate is diverse. There are warm dry summers & cool wet winters in the south and tropical summers & dry warm winters in the north.

For more information about Perth's weather see the Bureau of Meteorology.
