Queensland enjoys a pleasant climate year round with a warm summer from December to February and mild winter in July and August. The southern and central coastal areas have a comfortable subtropical climate. A little further inland the southeast experiences a temperate climate with four distinct seasons. The tropical north has a distinct wet season, when you may experience some cyclone activity and a milder dry season through the winter months. Outback western Queensland is drier than the rest of the State, and winter nights can be quite cold.
What To Pack:
Casual clothing for travelling & activities and smart casual for evening dining is recommended. Make sure you bring comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, insect repellent, towel, swimwear, all-weather coat/jacket and a warm sweater/jacket.
Wine and Food:
Alfresco dining, hinterland vineyards and internationally recognised restaurants are awaiting you. Queensland's gourmet paradise is delectable with award-winning wines and beers, organic produce and seafood that reflect many international influences. Follow a food and wine trail and you'll be sipping on a Chardonnay or rolling a Shiraz around your mouth on a grape-fuelled adventure. Wineries are often located in picturesque settings and many offer the opportunity for picnics in grassy knolls overlooking vineyard slopes. Pick up fresh produce and make your own antipasto with olives, cheeses, nuts and avocados straight off a tree. You'll taste some of the best food in the world in Queensland and even the most discerning diner will be satisfied. With fresh barramundi, mud crab, exotic crocodile meat, mangoes and macadamia nuts…that’s how you’ll really know you're in Queensland.
Things To Do
Queensland has an abundance of native Australian wildlife. Watch the progression of protected humpback whales on their journey along the coast between the Gold Coast and Whitsundays during the winter months. Queensland beaches provide excellent environments for loggerhead, flatback, green and leatherback turtles. At the beginning of summer, visit Mon Repos and quietly watch up to 20 turtles slowly progress up the beach to lay eggs. And a few months later, see the hatchlings make a perilous journey to the Pacific’s edge. Spot a platypus, or maybe another shy Australian mammal, on a guided nocturnal tour. In rural areas, you may even experience a mob of kangaroos bound through your campsite.
With five World Heritage listed areas and kilometres of ocean and natural landscapes, you’ll be amazed at Queensland’s preserved sites irreplaceable beauty. The 3,000 individual reefs and coral islands of the Great Barrier Reef harbour thousands of fish and marine creatures. While the rainforests of the Wet Tropics and Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves encompass the north and south of the State. Large tracks of significant dinosaur and fossil sites at Riversleigh are a testament of a former inland sea that once dominated Queensland’s Outback. Just as the giant sand dunes and perched lakes of Fraser Island depict natural wonders like no other place in the world. Nearly 5% of the huge landmass of Queensland is now protected as national park. So where will your favourite Queensland national park walk turn out to be?
Coastal Must Do's:
On the water, splash over the surface on jet skis, banana boats and high speed ocean rafts or feel the thrill of deep seas sports fishing. Explore hidden riches in the ocean by scuba diving or snorkelling among the many shipwrecks along the Queensland Coast.
