You don't need to travel all the way to Northern Hemisphere to seek out warmer weather this winter. Trade winter for the warmer weather of The Tropics in Far North Queensland on the Northern Beaches of Cairns.
Far North Queensland enjoys mild dry winters with the average temperature being between 21.5 - 29°C (70.7 - 84.2°F). This means it's still perfect for all types of outdoor and water activities that the region is renowned for. In fact winter in Cairns brings slightly cooler temperatures and lower humidity, making it more comfortable and is generally the peak tourist season.
The average sea temperature at Cairns’ northern beaches ranges from 23.8- 24.5°C (74.8 – 76.1°F), that means it's still warm enough for swimming, snorkelling or diving. Plus the good news is that you can swim in the sea water without the need of wearing a stinger suit, that is required during the summer months.
Winter is also the best time to visit the Great Barrier Reef as the lower temperatures and rainfall means clearer waters and better diving conditions. Most tour operators will however give you the option of wearing a wetsuit during the winter months if required.
From July to August you may even be lucky enough to see Humpback Whales if you go out on a boat trip, as they migrate up the coast during this period to the warm waters to give birth to their babies.
The clear skies and comfortable temperatures are perfect for exploring the region on foot. So get out your hiking boots and set off on one the many day hikes throughout the Cairns Hinterland, Daintree Forest or Atherton Tablelands.
