Perth overview

When is the best time to fly to Perth?

Peak season:

Perth – the sunniest of all Australia’s capital cities is busiest during summer (December to February) when the influx of tourists is amplified by local families who are enjoying the school holidays. Cheap flights to Perth are therefore difficult to find during this season. Temperatures range from 15°C to 30°C and people flock to the city’s beaches. A sea breeze called ‘The Freemantle Doctor’ provides some relief but the weather is mostly sunny and dry.

Off season:

Perth’s Mediterranean style climate produces mild, rainy winters where temperatures range from 12°C to 20°C. During this season, spanning the months between June to August, it is easier to find the cheapest flights to Perth. June is particularly rainy, with higher instances of thunderstorms and gale force winds so travellers who are planning a trip to Perth during this season should pack protective, wet weather gear.

When is the best time to book your flight to Perth?

Autumn and spring are the seasons to look for cheap flights to Perth while also ensuring that you catch the good weather and experience Perth’s outdoor lifestyle. Autumn falls between March and May, while spring falls from September to November. Rainy weather is a rarity during these seasons and temperatures remain around 19°C on average. If festivals are on your desired itinerary, the Sculpture by the Sea arts festival takes place in March.
