7 Places you Must Visit this Australian Winter

 
Australia has so much to offer, any time of the year. This winter, whether you're looking to escape the cool change or delve into a winter wonderland, Australia has it all.
 
Below are seven must-see Australian winter travel destinations that you need to explore.

Hamilton Island

 
Off the coast of tropical Queensland, Hamilton Island boasts the perfect winter conditions for a relaxing getaway. A delightful 25 degrees at the end of stinger season in May, it's a wonderful time for diving and snorkelling.
 
August 18-25 2018 sees an exciting yacht race for the Audi Hamilton Island Race Week, an exquisite sight to see as you soak in the sun on Whitehaven Beach.
 

Snowy Mountains

 
Ever been to a music festival in the snow?
 
This is your opportunity! From June 8-11 2018, Peak Music Festival welcomes in the snow season at Perisher, with over 30 artists performing at this four-day event.
 
The Snowy Mountains are the prime spot for skiing and snowboarding in Australia; enjoy Christmas in July in Thredbo on the 25th, where you can see Santa on the slopes!
 

Uluru

 
Bruce Munro's installation, Field of Light, displays over 50,000 lights set out in the sands of the desert.
 
The lower temperatures make it a beautiful time to see this work, which ends in December 2020. The Uluru Camel Cup event is a must-see, with the big race on May 26, kick off the night before with celebrations at the Outback Pioneer Hotel and Bar. 
 

Lord Howe Island

 
Being the off-season, winter is a great time to visit Lord Howe Island.
 
It's the cheapest time to go. You can get a week-long package for under $1000 per person and some great discounts with Capella Lodge's stay-and-save deals.
 

Canberra

 
Close-by to see the snow, Canberra is a great destination to see on your way to the slopes. With a range of culinary delights, the Canberra and Capital Region Truffle Festival is a food lover's dream, lasting 12 weeks. Garema Place also becomes home to open-air-skating in mid-winter, a romantic opportunity or a playful, family-fun activity.

Kununurra and the Kimberley

 
The annual Kimberley Moon Experience Concert brings the remote town of Kununarra to a bustle.
 
With headliners like The Cat Empire and Lee Kernaghan, this year's festival on May 19 is a sure hit. The dry season brings temperatures down to around 30 degrees, creating optimal conditions to explore Bungles National Park in the Kimberly. It's time to head over to the Lake Argyle Adventure Race on September 7-8, where participants paddle, swim and cycle their way to the finish line.
 

Tasmania

 
MONA holds an enticing mid-winter festival, with a 12-day celebration of art, film, light and music. Dark Mofo is a mix of paid and free events, running from June 8-17 and 19-24. While you're there, search out the Aurora Australis in the night sky; it’s the best spot in Australia to view it and is brightest late winter-early spring.
 
Brisbane domestic airport has flights to these destinations and closest airports on a regular basis, and long-term airport parking in Brisbane is available from $8 a day.
