Whether you’re looking for a weekend break, or an international getaway – these are the best places to travel to in August.

The Snowy Mountains
The Snowy Mountains

August in the snowy mountains means fewer people and more snow. What’s not to love? You could skip a few days of school and head down for the weekend. Or if you are lucky enough to live close by, do a day trip. Accommodation on-snow can still be pricey. Try staying in Jindabyne if you want something more budget-friendly.
