As a general rule, the Grampians experiences medium to heavy rainfall during the Winter months (from June to August). Winter in the Grampians might not suit families wishing to spend their days in the outdoors, but might suit couples on a romantic getaway if they intend to sit by a warm fire, go to a day spa and while away the hours with a glass of wine and a delicious restaurant meal. As winter is the low season, prices for accommodation are typically a little cheaper and there is much more availability during this time.
During Spring, the weather is typically sunny with warm days and cool nights and usually sits between 20-30 degrees celsius. As the verdant woodlands bloom with myriads of wildflowers, the region looks vibrant and colourful and there are also a number of spring flower festivals and wildflower shows held during this time. This is a popular time for families to visit the Grampians region, so those planning a visit during this time are advised to book early.
In Summer, the Grampians weather is typically warm and dry and rain is uncommon. As the temperatures can soar to as high as 40 degrees celsius (but typically sits around 28-35 degrees), rock climbers and bushwalkers to this area might wish to void the arid summer time as it can get very hot.
As this is a bushland area, bush walkers are advised that they should check current weather warnings for bushfires around this area. Check with your local accommodation provider for the latest information. The Grampians is a popular holiday destination during this peak time so visitors are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.
The area stays comparatively cooler in Autumn (March to May); hence, outdoor activities can be enjoyed during this time. Those with an interest in exploring the wide array of scenic trails should choose the Autumn or Spring months for the optimal time to visit the Grampians.
With so many attractions and activities, the Grampians is truly a premier holiday destination in Australia.
