March - May
When Brisbane gets hot it can be scorching, the best time is to go is during the shouldering season, as the hot summer is calming from its humid hot temperatures. In the month of March to May Brisbane is comfortable and dry, while maintaining the sunny weather, rain usually is minimal. The temperature averages between 24.5 ˚C to 17 ˚C, but may get as low as 14 ˚C, so we advise taking a lightweight windbreaker just in case. The scenery in Brisbane is unexpectedly spectacular, known for its beaches and quintessential Queensland holiday greatness, during the Summer Autumn fringe, Brisbane is not too hot to be outdoors and enjoying a scenic walkabout.
