Travel in the Low Season. If you have time off at a random point of the year and can avoid the peak- do it! Australia is way too busy for Christmas so why not head over in March? The weather is perfect, sites are clear and school is back! The same goes for most countries- head on the week after the peak season ends and you will still experience the best it has to offer- without the crowds. The best way to follow the busy periods is through hotel pricing- peak seasons=highest prices!
