Alice Springs comprising largely of the desert sees some rather unpredictable weather. The heat is extreme and rainfall can vary from a slight drizzle to an out and out thunderstorm. The desert winter is one that does not need an introduction.
The best months to visit Alice Springs would be from April to October. The weather during these months permits a lot of outdoor activities and when the dry season starts setting in, in May, the low humidity levels and temperature are best suited for tourist activities.
The months from November to April see some unpredictable rainfall and the best time to step out would be between the showers. But since the rains don’t follow any pattern when it comes to time, place or intensity, be prepared for the worst.
