The Cairns region has a fabulous tropical climate ideal for outdoor enjoyment. Cairns has a winter period of balmy temperatures and low rainfall and a summer period of warm temperatures with increased rainfall. During the “wet” season, we get intermittent periods of tropical rain and sun. But its always warm enough to swim, snorkel on the reef or just enjoy the open spaces. The average annual maximum temperatures are 31.4 degrees celsius and an average minimum of 17.0 degrees celsius.
