Wet Season

The tropical regions of Australia, in the north of the country, including the equatorial and sub-tropical zones have high temperatures and high humidity and distinct wet and dry seasons.

In the Australian tropics the wet season, called the monsoon season, lasts about six months, between November and March. It is hotter than the dry season, with temperatures between 30 and 50 degrees Celsius. This is because of the high humidity during the wet, which is caused by large amounts of water in the air.

    • Thanks for your kind complements Indah. You are correct. December is summer here in Oz but for those of us living in the northern parts of the country being tropical/sub-tropical, we do experience hot humid days combined with tropical storms and cyclones. The summer heat experience in the southern and middle parts of the country is a dry heat.
