Seeing how Cairns lies in the tropical north of Queensland, the terms summer and winter don’t have the same impact as in other parts of the world. What those terms do indicate, however, is either a wet or dry season – one incredibly humid with the chance for storms, and the other warm without much moisture in the air. Still, there isn’t much you can do in the summer in Cairns that you can’t already do during the winter. You just might be able to have more fun comfortably with beach related activities in the summer.

This is a bit of a obvious when out in stunning Cairns, but you must, must, must take at least one day-trip to the Great Barrier Reef! Here you can engage in snorkeling or just lay out on the white sandy beaches and catch a tan in the balmy tropical climate. Luckily, there are more than a handful of tour groups to show you around and even take you scuba diving in the Reef without even as little as a license. Once you’ve taken an introductory diving course and want seconds, there are intermediate and certified diving options (both day and night) that will give you the chance to fully explore this great reef.
