Summer (November to April)
The major season on these islands, summer lasts for almost half the year here. Northerly winds blow humid heat on the shores, leading to high temperatures (31°C). Humidity is so high, you might be bothered if you come from a drier part of the world. Beaches are good at this time though, and the summer sun ensures that you have plenty daylight for your tourist activities. Even so, summer is not a tourist time here and not recommended if you wish for great weather on your holiday.
Winter (May to mid-September)
Autumn is an almost absent season in Whitsunday Islands, hence we directly jump to winter. Evidently, winters are the best time to visit Whitsunday and make for the peak season for most tourists. The weather is just perfect from May to September, with temperatures that are not too cold but pleasant. June-July boasts of a nice 22-23°C. The water temperature is not too hot, nor too cold, making it perfect for swims and other sports. All you need is a lightweight sweatshirt or cardigan for evenings/ nights to survive winters here. Shorts and tees are very well suited for days.
Spring (September to October)
Spring is a short-lived season here, sandwiched usually between the months of September and October. The season strikes a balance between warmth and cold, making it ideal for tourists who want to enjoy the islands without much crowds to compete. The rates are also lower as rainfall may be observed occasionally. The water activities like swimming, snorkelling, sailing etc can be undertaken without much crowd bickering around.
