June is wintertime in Australia, and if you’re like me, that’s a trip you want to make when things’ll be breeziest. Melbourne (down 32%) and Sydney (down 34%) are already much less humid than cities to the north like Darwin, and June sees some events that make them even lovelier. After a brief hiatus, the beloved Melbourne Book Market is back, setting up within Queen Victoria Market every Sunday through late August. The first week of June means it’s time for the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, and June 8 you can catch the Winter Wine Fest (tickets start around $75). Head up the coast, meanwhile, and you’ll find the Sydney Film Festival running from June 5-16. Vivid Sydney -- part music festival, part art installation, part technology summit -- also takes over the capital the first half of the month. After dark, when you’re walking around downtown, you’ll be able to see light projections playing off of iconic landmarks like the Sydney Opera House.
