Weather is moderate compare to many other part of the world, however, northern part of Australia is much warmer than south. At the moment we are still in winter and spring will come soon in September it is the best time to stay in NSW, Victoria and South Australia. Summer begins in December, as of Jan and Feb are driest part of the season but people enjoyed most in summer as the most of festivals and major international sport competitions are on this time. There are varieties of food available in most part of the country as the country consists of more migrants from every continents of the world and they brought their cultures and traditional cuisines. You may find them interesting and enjoy those variety. As the country is surrounded by the sea you won't miss any kind of sea food that you like here in Australia.

Australia is a big place and it depends where you want to go.If you head up to North Queensland it is very hot if you head to Tasmania it is very cold if you head to Sydney the weather is cool in winter and somewhat hot in summer. Yes plenty of lobster around the coastline of Australia, biggest ones in Tasmania that's because lobsters prefer cold water hope this helps.

Dear Donna/dogheavengreen Moore, At the moment it is winter so it is cold in the Northern part of Australia (meaning Melbourne, Canberra NSW, and Tasmania. Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia are warm. The best time of the year to visit is March/April which is our Autumn. The weather seems to be settled in Autumn than in Spring which is September, October and November. We have good food, and there is a good variety of seafood available and we do have Lobster.

Hi Donna,

At present it is a little cool in the mornings, but the days are nice, around 20 C. Next month and October are a lot better, the days are a lot warmer
Best time to visit is probably March, after the summer, as January and February are pretty hot and humid.
Food is good, steaks are nice, not to expensive, yes their are plenty of lobsters. If coming to Sydney, go to the Fish markets are Pyrmont, you will have a nice meal. Also anywhere around the harbour is nice, their are plenty of restuarants and nice bars to relax. Also a lot of shopping.

I take it you mean Sydney..if you like it hot Jan-Feb is the best time. Oct-Nov is pleasantly warm. We are truly multi-cultural, when it comes to food you can find anything. Lots of Italian, Thai, Japanese, morden (mix), etc. And seafood here is the best in the world, so yes, there're plenty of lobsters.

The weather in Australia is very erratic during winters (April - August) - very cold and rainy. If you like summers then Mid September - January is good but gets hot upto 44 degrees C. Australia is multi cultural so everything is available.

Because Australia is a very large country, the climate can be different from one part to the other. The southern regions would be described as 'temperate', that is Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, but moving further north to Brisbane, and certainly further north to Townsville, Cairns and Darwin it is distinctly tropical weather. The best time to visit may be September/October, or March/April, when the weather is nice and mild, neither too hot nor cold...and yes, we definitely have Lobster.

The weather depends where you are in Australia. Melbourne today is cool, windy and a chance of a shower. Best time of year varies across the country from the temperate south to the tropical north. For Melbourne it is around March/April or October/November. As for food - you name it, we've got it and yes, we certainly have lobster.

Right now in Sidney we are coming towards the end of winter, so the weather is a little unpredictable. Will start to warm up towards the end of September. Spring / early summer is the best time. Which means Sept through to Dec is great weather. Throughout Australia you will find food from all over the world and yes Lobster is available, though it can be somewhat expensive.

The best time to visit Australia will depend on what you like to do, want to see and where you want to visit. If you want sub tropical weather but don't want humid weather then July August September is the time for Queensland Western Australia and the Northern Territory. If you want to ski and don't mind colder weather then July August in southern New South Wales and Victoria. The food is cosmopolitan and yes there is lobster.

The weather is very good. It is similar to that of Florida. I think the best time to visit is October to April (not during winter, although it doesn't get that cold). All types of food, seafood, steak, italian, hamburgers, anything really. You can get lobster but it is a bit more expensive than other foods.

Summer is from Decenber til end Feb and the warmest time for the East coast from Brisbane down to Melbourne. My favorite time of year is March/April. Not so hot but still around 26 C ind Sydney without the heavy rain we often get in Dec/Jan. If you're traveling North of Brisbane it's pretty tropical and best from April - Auugust ..... Great Barrier Reef, Darwin etc. Hope this a help. You'll love it here. Regards, Ian

We are almost at the end of Winter, with Spring only days away. So the weather is getting nicer.

It really depends on what you are interested in doing whilst here... Summer (December- February) is a great time to experience some of the beautiful beaches etc.,

Yes we do have Lobster here in Australia. We have a large mix of foods, as there is a very large Multicultural population. (Chinese, Greek, USA, Italian and so on) It's really not to different to what you'd find in the USA.

I hope this is of some help :) Enjoy your travels.
