Where To Travel in October

In the southern states of Australia the month of October can be quite pleasant but there may also be a lot of rainy days during this month. In contrast the northern parts of the country are generally free from rain and have warm to hot temperatures, making it the ideal place to travel to if you are looking for a relaxing, sunny holiday during October. If you are after value for money whilst travelling in Australia then you will find that part of October has reasonable prices for holiday accommodation and flights, but the part of October when school holidays occur will see prices for these things soar. So to get the best bank for your buck when travelling always check to see when the school holidays are for each state (they are different from state to state) and if possible book outside of these periods.
