When traveling to the South Pacific keeping the ideal seasons in mind is always helpful. New Zealand is great for year round travel. The summer months December – March bring a lot of sun and warm weather, fantastic for visiting beaches, sailing and other summer activities such as walking. Winter, July – September are the best months for making the most of the snow, whether you enjoy skiing and snowboarding, or prefer a scenic heli flight over the scenic snow covered Alps. Australia is very diverse and offers different vistas year round. November – March brings rain to the far north however it is a great time to visit the out back and other cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Hobart and Perth. With warm weather and sunny days the available activities are endless. In the winter months, June – August visiting the far north is a must, with the Great Barrier Reef offering some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world – it is hard to go past. Tahiti and Fiji offer very similar climates. April – October being the best time to visit, with warmer temperatures and dry weather, everything from snorkeling and hiking to sailing and diving are readily available. While November – April is classed as the rainy season, the temperatures are warm and the days often dry with the rain arriving in the afternoon and overnight. There is truly somewhere to visit year-round in the South Pacific.
