Weather in Adelaide

The driest of all Australian state capitals, Adelaide offers a Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and hot, dry summers.

Spring (September-October) is a great time to be in the city. Rainfall is rare and the weather is warm but mild. Head to the Botanic Garden to see the roses and waterlilies bloom.

Summer (December to February) is typically hot and arid, but pleasant for those who enjoy the sun. This is the time to slap on the sun cream at Glenelg and uncork some award-winning wines in the Barossa Valley. Temperatures can reach up to 29°C (84.2°F).

Autumn (March to May) is a time of mild weather and bustling activity in Adelaide. Those looking to pack out their schedule should visit the city in these months, when the place comes to life with huge events such as Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival and Tasting Australia.

Winter (June to August) in Adelaide is temperate but wet, with average temperatures as high as 16ºC (61ºF) and as low as 7ºC (45ºF). But with a light jacket and umbrella in hand, you’ll find the city friendly and accessible.
