Im going to be at Ayres Rock in the beginning of febuary, has anyone been there this time of year? I was just wondering what the weather was like when you were there. We are going to be doing the 5 day camping trip there, has anyone done this? if so whats it like.
I'm an Aussie (currently travelling in the UK) and have spent a fair bit of time in that area. I can answer your question in one word - hot. Summer in Australia is dec-feb, and you're gonna be in one of the hotter parts of the country. Days over 40C aren't unusual at that time of year. Having said that though, it can get damn cold at night in that area, even in the middle of summer. So be prepared with light clothing for the days (and SUNSCREEN, I cannot emphasise this enough!!!) but you'll want something warmer for those nights when it does get cold.
Hope this helps.
Excellent, thanks for that Aisha. Im really looking forward to some nice hot weather at last, its freezing in England at the mo! but i guess you know that if your travelling here, hope your having a fab time!!!! Another question for you, we are arriving in Cairns middle of Feb and making our way down the coast untill we reach Melbourne. We are doing this for Feb March and begining of April, what kind of weather can i expect then? is it still fairly warm?
