Are you thinking of exploring Western Australia? Do you know when the seasons are or when to come? Discover the climate & best time to tour Western Australia now!
Trying to say when to come to WA is virtually impossible. It is such a big state (in fact, if it was a country it would be the 10th biggest country in the world!), and it has many differing weather zones and areas.
To say "this is the best time to visit WA" would be both misleading and irresponsible of me. However, what I can do is break it down into different areas for you.
If you are thinking of visiting the tropical northern part of WA (Broome), please visit the when to visit Darwin page for more details as the weather is very similar, with the exception that Broome is a little hotter than Darwin during the dry season, and is a little cooler and only receives about a third of the rain during the wet season.
If you are considering touring the inner outback areas, then please visit the when to visit Northern Territory page as they are very similar in weather conditions.
South of Perth is a very popular tourist area with many beautiful areas including the Margaret River wine area, Esperance, Albany, numerous national parks and gorgeous beaches. Let us investigate the weather in and around the Albany region, which gives a pretty good overall indication of the entire southern WA region.
This area experiences the normal four months that most of us are used to, summer, spring, winter, autumn, with the wettest months generally occurring over the late spring/winter period.
These are the average yearly temperatures from 1907 - 2012 and are sourced from www.weatherzone.com.au.

Note: WA is a MASSIVE place. While this page gives a quick guide as to what to expect in certain areas, it is always a very good idea to check the local weather forecast before heading somewhere new. Australia is a land of extremes with anything ranging from bushfires to flooding. While the chances of these are minimal, it pays to be safe!
