About the calendar

The Australian Weather Calendar is a stunning way to bring you the very best of the four unique Australian seasons – all year round.

Every breathtaking photo of a weather event tells a thousand stories, and these stories are offered in full glossy colour, twelve months of the year.

The featured photos capture Australia’s varied weather conditions, through all four seasons, in capital cities and country towns right across the country. They demonstrate the breadth of the weather events we monitor 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Each photo tells a story of how weather impacts people across Australia. The weather in each image also offers an insight into the importance of the millions of data captured by our network of observing equipment each and every day. The network provides vital information to the people working at the Bureau to inform our forecasts and warnings as well as the community directly.

From automatic weather stations recording the temperature on a foggy morning to weather radars tracking rainfall, this specialist equipment, on the ground and in the sky, sends critical data to help meteorologists, hydrologists and other specialists and experts keep Australians informed every day.


  • Thirteen carefully selected photographs from all corners of Australia, each capturing an authentic and remarkable weather experience
  • Simple explanations of each photo's weather event
