Perth Weather

Perth hotels

Endless days with temperatures exceeding 35C are common during Summer, as hot north-easterly winds come in from the desert. Thankfully residents find some solace in the Fremantle Doctor, a southwesterly sea breeze that blows in late afternoon to cool the city and its suburbs down.

The typical mediterranean climate see Perth enjoy almost 3000 hours of sunshine per year as visitors and residents enjoy the many outdoor activities on offer.

Perth is the fourth wettest capital city in Australia (behind Darwin, Sydney and Brisbane). There is only sporadic rainfall in Summer as Perth basks in glorious sunny days with temperatures regularly hitting 40C. On February 23, 1991 the temperature hit a record 46.2C.
