Cairns' Local Weather

Australian seasons are the reverse of the northern hemisphere. Cairns' summer is December to February, winter is June to August. However, as Cairns is very close to the equator and in a tropical zone, we experience relatively warm winters and high humidity in the summer months. Rain is not uncommon from January to April, but while this rain can fall on Cairns, due to the surrounding mountains, it is often clear out to sea. See our Weather page under 'Local Info' for further details.
