degrees, Queensland is one of the country’s warmest winter destinations.

winter with swimming conditions at their best between April and October.
The coast offers a wealth of prime swimming beaches, with some
patrolled over the winter months.

3. Avoid the Crowds


Despite the heat, many tourists flock to Queensland in
summer to soak up the best of the state’s humid weather conditions. A
visit over the winter months is a great way to avoid the crowds yet
still make the most of the great weather and uncrowded tourist

4. Save on Costs


Winter is not only an uncrowded time to visit Queensland but
is economical as well! Over winter the cost of airfares, tours,
attractions, caravan parks and camper van hire is at a decreased rate. This means you can still enjoy a tropical getaway without the price tag to match.

5. Visit the Great Barrier Reef


No trip to Queensland is complete without visiting
Australia’s most visited attraction; The Great Barrier Reef. Winter is
the ideal time to experience the reef with dive and snorkel tours
offering affordable rates, great water clarity and less people on the
more popular day trips. Don’t miss out on Whitehaven Beach!
