The weather makes it so easy to explore this amazing area where the rainforest meets the sea, and the sea temperatures are mild so that you can swim without being too cold. It's perfect weather for a leisurely stroll along the beach or for exploring some of the many walking tracks we have up here. You may even see a Cassowary on your travels.
The weather is a big factor here and brings people from all over the world to explore this beautiful region. You can take a short boat trip across to Dunk Island and snorkel straight off the beach to explore the Great Barrier Reef.
Escape the cold and head to Far North Queensland! You won't regret it!
