Guide to Brisbane & Southern Queensland
Brisbane & Southern Queensland
Brisbane is blessed with a near perfect year-round dry tropical climate and plenty of sunshine. Fifty miles south is the Gold Coast where 35 beaches extend for over 40 miles. The Sunshine Coast, featuring the town of Noosa, is a 90 minute drive north of Brisbane. Off the coast is Fraser Island and an array of tropical islands in the The Whitsundays.
When to go
Brisbane offers an excellent sub-tropical climate. The coolest months are July and August with day time temperatures around 21°C. The hottest time of the year is January and February with daytime highs of 29°C. The Whitsundays enjoys a tropical climate of hot summers, warm winters and bright spring and autumn days. Average daily temperatures range from around 22 - 23°C in the winter months of June and July, and up to 29 - 30°C in December and January during the height of summer. Water temperatures remain a welcoming 25°C most of the year round. The tropical wet season occurs during January to March when days can be steamy and the summer heat is often broken by tropical showers.
