Winter is the time to mull wine, knit scarves (or at least buy them), roast things and drink exactly 87,000 cups of tea a day. Our mild winters allow for some sensational, season-defying blooms such as Poppies, Tulips and Hyacinths.
And if you haven’t seen a snow gum up close, you must! Take up skiing if you have to – truly one of Australia’s most stunning natural beauties.
Winter months: June, July and August
