What are the best times to travel to East Coast Australia?

The best period to visit is the summer, from December to February, since it is the warmest season, in addition, the days are longer and the rains are less frequent, which is an advantage especially in inland and mountainous areas. It is true that you may sometimes experience very hot weather, which is felt more at low altitude, but in these cases, the heat is quite bearable because of wind and low humidity.
Considering that it can be a bit cold at night even in the height of summer, and lows can drop below 10 °C (50 °F) even on the coasts, it's better to bring a light jacket and a sweater also in this period, and a heavier jacket if you plan to visit the inland and mountainous areas, where the wind blows more easily during the day and the temperature can drop to around freezing at night. In addition, a raincoat may be helpful for the rain showers.

What to pack on your Yachting Vacations in East Coast Australia?

Summer (December to February) in the tropical north and Darwin, and in the north-east down to Brisbane, bring lightweight clothing of natural fibers, a scarf for the breeze, a light sweatshirt for the evening and for air-conditioned places, and a light raincoat for thunderstorms. When going to the reef, you can bring snorkeling equipment, including water shoes or rubber-soled shoes. For the desert, bring lightweight, loose-fitting clothing made of natural fabric (cotton or linen), a desert turban, sunglasses, a light sweatshirt for the evening, a sweatshirt for the night, a sleeping bag for outdoor overnight stays, and desert boots. In the center-south and the major cities, pack light clothing, a sweatshirt for the breeze and for cool days, a scarf for the wind-borne sand and dust, possibly a light jacket and an umbrella, especially in Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne. For Tasmania, spring/autumn clothes, a sweater, and a jacket.
