Summer. An average summer day has a maximum temperature in the low to mid 30s. We have some very hot summer days around 36 to 40°C . These days are by no means uncomfortable, but we will show you the techniques the pioneers used to stay cool in the Australian Outback.
Winter: You will need a cardigan or sweater. Winter at Boshack is mild, with an average maximum around 18°C and many days a balmy 20 to 25°C. We get a lot of clear blue skies.
