Perth boasts the most hours of sunshine of all the capital cities in Australia. With its Mediterranean style climate, locals take advantage of the outdoors at every opportunity. With our relaxed, casual lifestyle, especially during summer time, we can be found dining alfresco at local cafe hangouts, catching a Sunday session at an outdoor beer garden, watching an outdoor movie, cooling off at the beach during heatwaves, or having a barbeque ("barbie") or picnic at one of many picturesque settings by the Swan River.
Being in the Southern Hemisphere, Perth has the following seasons:
Summer - December to February
Autumn - March to May
Winter - June to August
Spring - September to November
Perth average annual temperatures range from 12°C to 24°C. During winter, average annual temperatures can range from 7°C to 18°C and during summer the annual temperatures can range from 16°C to 31°C. With our long and hot summers, the heat can be turned up to over 40°C heat. Luckily, in the summer months, the Fremantle ("Freo") Doctor may come to the assistance by blowing ocean winds in the afternoon across the city to cool it off.
