Winter is the perfect time to holiday in Far North Queensland with warm days and a temperature of range from 17.5 - 26°C, with less humidity and low rainfall. Water temperatures on Cairns' Great Barrier Reef are usually around 23°C during the months of June/July, however wetsuits are generally provided on all dive boats if required.
This makes for idyllic conditions for a Far North Queensland holiday with temperatures still being warm enough to partake in numerous water activities, but cool enough to enjoy all types of adventure activities such as walking and hiking.
Some of the great winter activities in Cairns include:
- A day out on the Great Barrier Reef snorkelling, scuba diving or observing the reef from a glass bottom boat.
- The scenic Kuranda railway trip up to Kuranda and the Cairns Skyrail Rainforest Cableway.
- Day trip to the Daintree Rainforest and cruise down the Daintree River.
- Discover some of the reef’s unspoilt islands, of Fitzroy, Green or Hinchinbrook Island.
- White Water Rafting down the Barron, Russell and Tully rivers.
- Wildlife encounters at Kuranda Koala Gardens, Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, Cairns Zoom & Wildlife Dome or Hartley's Crocodile Adventure.
- Chill at the Lagoon on Cairns Esplanade or stroll across the road to the sandy, palm-fringed beach at Trinity Beach. Trinity Beach is a family friendly beach and the kids will love the sandy beach and shady trees with year round safe swimming.
