Tropical North Queensland has two distinct seasons; a winter period of warm temperatures and low rainfall, and a summer period of balmy temperatures and higher rainfall.

Winter (May-Oct) offers idyllic conditions - sunshine, fresh breezes and low humidity. Summer (Nov-Apr) has a lush tropical atmosphere with electrical storms and afternoon downpours which feed the magnificent waterfalls in the nearby rainforests. This is a spectacular time to visit our region.

Average daily temperatures range from a minimum of 17°C overnight to a maximum daytime temperature of 33°C. Sea temperatures are in the range of 23°C-29°C all year around.
