Travel Tips

When to Go

Queensland is a year-round destination with a climate to suit every traveler's preference. In southern Queensland, hot summers are perfect for water activities, while clear skies and cooler nights make winter ideal for outdoor adventures. For a tropical escape to North Queensland, April to October offers warm and dry weather with minimal risk of stingers on the reef. To witness flowing waterfalls and full lakes, plan your visit from November to March.

Fees & Permits

When exploring the Great Barrier Reef, keep in mind that many tours incur an Environmental Management Charge. This charge is typically included in the tour price and is payable to the operator on the day of your tour. Be aware that this charge is subject to change.
