The great thing about visiting Queensland is that it's pretty much a year-round destination. Like the rest of Australia, their seasons are swapped around, so summer is December to February, and winter is June to August. You can still get decent temperatures in the winter, with highs averaging 21°C, making Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef a year round destination for travellers.
