During springtime, this city begins to bask in blooming and fragrant flowers. In fact, despite sweltering temps and high season rates, September through November is known as the best time to visit Perth. The off-season (March, April, and May) is known for moderate crowds and lower prices, which makes for another option when planning your visit. Endless outdoor activities and water fun abound, and don’t miss savoring Perth’s famed pine mushrooms. December through February mark the most scorching temps of the year. Hotel prices significantly drop, so it is the most affordable time to go. Live like the locals, and immerse yourself in electronic music at the Electric Gardens Festival. Low season, from June to August, usually brings heavy rains and sometimes even storms; however, the chance to encounter mild weather, keen prices, and smiling quokkas is still high.
