Located in southeast Queensland, known as the 'Sunshine State', Brisbane enjoys a subtropical climate with warm sunny weather, mild balmy nights and generally consistent weather year round. Temperatures range between an average of minimum 21 degrees Celsius and maximum 29 degrees Celsius in summer and minimum 10 degrees Celsius and maximum 22 degrees Celsius in winter.
Although during summer the weather can get quite hot, winter isn't particularly cold as temperatures remain reasonably moderate and the days are still sunny. In fact, it's hard to pick a best time to visit as conditions are fantastic year round however spring is particularly lovely as the flowers are in bloom and the nights enjoy a cool breeze.
Australia's seasons are the opposite of Europe and North America with December marking the beginning of summer and running until February. Autumn (fall) runs from March to May with winter falling from June to August and spring occurring from September to November.
Enjoying the spectacular weather of Brisbane is mostly done outdoors, however visitors unaccustomed to the warmer climate and sunny weather are advised to use plenty of sun protection including regularly applying sunscreen, wearing sunglasses and a hat and drinking plenty of water.
To convert temperatures in degrees Celsius into Fahrenheit, the easiest way to estimate the difference is to double the Celsius temperature and then add 32. For example, 29 degrees Celsius = (2 x 29) + 32 = 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
