It’s little wonder that Queensland is known as the sunshine state with Brisbane boasting more sun-filled days than any other Australian capital city. A tropical climate provides for an average of 283 sunny days each year and stable temperatures across all four seasons, which makes for plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities which are never in short supply.
Travelers who visit Brisbane from different parts of the world, mainly from colder nations such as Europe and America, love Brisbane’s warm and sunny weather. Sunny days in winters make the days beautiful for outings.
Summers can get hot though. Normally, it starts getting hotter around November and stays hot till March. The temperature can go up to 40 degrees in many parts of Brisbane. Some parts of central Queensland can go up to 50 degrees. This can also result in occasional bush fires in many national parks or forest areas.
From April to June, the temperature is average and then it starts getting colder around July. The temperature can go down to 3 or 4 degrees in winters. However, very rarely it reaches zero degree Celsius. Some parts of Brisbane had snow in mid of 2015 but that was a rare occasion, once in a decade.
It is quite normal to have storms in Brisbane which can bring heavy winds, flash flooding and hails with it. Storm season starts around October but because of Brisbane’s proximity to sea, occasional heavy rains and storms can build up any time around the year. Many parts of Brisbane have even been victims of extreme flooding in the past.
