When to go
November to February has the balmiest beach weather, but you’ll still have plenty of sun in quieter spring or autumn. If whale-spotting is topping your to-do list, aim for September to November.
PlanesSydney Airport is the nearest major hub. Fly there direct from cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco and Hong Kong. Most flights from Europe and eastern US cities connect via Asian hubs such as Singapore and Abu Dhabi.
AutomobilesIt’s around a two-hour drive from both Sydney and Canberra. You’ll need some wheels if you’re planning any national-park hopping or winery touring, so hire a car at the airport if you’re not bringing your own.
