As winter reaches its coldest peak in the Northern Hemisphere, many of us are dreaming about vacations to a sunny, warm place. Australia is one country in the Southern Hemisphere which is currently in the middle of its summer and enjoying the best weather of the year. If you are considering a trip down under and want to find a sunny spot, take a look at these cities which receive the most sunshine in the entire country.
Located on Australia’s west coast is the city of Perth, a bustling metropolis that receives an average of 147 sunny days and 121 partly cloudy days per year, with the bulk of them coming in the summer. It’s the perfect place to stroll outside, visit the city’s parks, and head to the Indian Ocean beaches!
