1 September to 30 November 
Average temperature 17°C

This is when the temperatures start to get warmer and the days longer. There's still snow on the mountains perfect for spring skiing, while down at lake level you can make the most of the milder weather and get out on the bike, or play a round of golf.  

The north west winds arrive making this a great time of the year to get out on a yacht, or have a kite surf!

There are plenty of other activities to do as well including; via feratta, jetboating, walking, 4WD and off road adventures.
