Best time to go to Cairns

Peak Season:

The peak season of Cairns falls between July and October. These months, though slightly cooler than others, are often very pleasant – warm and breezy, with little rain. Because of the pleasant climate, tourists tend to flock to this location to sight-see, indulge in some shopping or do a bit of snorkelling.

Shoulder Season:

Because these months tend to be chillier than other times, the shoulder season, which falls between May and June, sees a decrease in tourism. Provided you do not mind the colder weather, this is an excellent time to find cheap flights, as the lack of tourists often results in lower fares.

Off Season:

The off season in Cairns sees a dramatic change in climate, with an increase of heavy rainfall and thunderstorms. This change in weather provides a decrease in tourism and a swell of inexpensive flights. If you happen to enjoy the wet weather, this is a great time to visit as you will not only have a little more leg room, but you will also be able to enjoy increased underwater visibility and an exciting social life among the locals.
