Weather In Adelaide
Temperate | Mediterranean | Dry

Adelaide climate is similar to the Mediterranean with mild to cool winters that have moderate rainfall and warm to hot and dry summers.

South Australia in known as the driest state of Australia and Adelaide is the driest capital city – so an umbrella is optional! Having said that, we have also had our share of thunderstorms and heatwaves.

In winter (June to August) the average maximum is around 15–16 °C (59–61 °F) and the average minimum around 7–8 °C (45–46 °F).

In summer (December to February) the average maximum is around 29 °C (84 °F). However there are many days of summer where the temperature exceeds 35 °C and we also expect several days where the daytime temperature is over 39 °C (102 °F).

Sun protection is a must on a holiday in Adelaide during summer and a coat, scarf and beanie in winter will definitely make your trip more pleasant!
