Best Time To Go
North Queensland is a tropical region, so there are two very
distinct seasons - Wet and Dry. The Wet season (January to April)
brings steaming hot temperatures, high rainfall and high levels of
humidity. The up-side of the wet season is that the rainforest is
amazing, everything is so Green. The bird life is spectacular and the
waterfalls are stunning - more often than not they are raging torrents.
The dry season, which is at its mildest from July to September, sees
little or no rain, low humidity, pleasant days with equally
comfortable, balmy nights. April to September offers the clearest
skies, while November and December are the hottest time of the year.
July to September is the peak tourist season; if you are planning to
visit then, you are advised to book your travel arrangements in
advance, especially during school holidays when the best accommodation
gets booked up anything up to six months in advance.
