Reasons to fly with Qantas
Visiting from New York (JFK) to Adelaide
When to visit
Adelaide has warm sunny weather almost all year round, with maximum average of 22.3°C. Winter brings on temperatures averaging a low of 7°C. February to March is the best time of year to visit Adelaide, as temperatures tend to settle around a 14°C minimum and 24°C maximum range without any of the humidity that plagues more northern cities. As a result of this climate, Adelaide bases a large number of events during this season that gives a sense of liveliness to what is widely seen as one of Australia's typically more laid-back cities. Rainy weather usually spreads in the colder months, while spring brings a fresh growth of greenery and flowers.
