THE WHITSUNDAY WEATHER AND CLIMATE

The Whitsunday islands are an archipelago of some the most naturally beautiful islands, waterfalls, nature walks, beaches, habitat and marine life the world has to offer.

The region is like most other tropical archipelagos. It experiences hot summers, mild winters and warm spring and autumns. Average temperature in the winter months of June and July would range from 22-23 degrees. In the summer months it would range from 29-30 degrees. The best part about the Whitsundays is the water temperature is a constant 25 degrees all year round.

As with most tropical destinations there is a wet season. This occurs between the months of January to March. Often the days are steamy and tropical showers are common. However it is still quite warm.
