Flights to Queensland
What to know before you fly to Queensland?
Queensland is a vast state, with a climate that ranges from tropical in the north to subtropical in the south. If you’re travelling to Cairns, Port Douglas or the Whitsunday Islands, bear in mind that November to April is rainy season, with hot and humid days. The Gold Coast is a perfect place to visit any time, with around 300 days of sunshine each year. There’s more to the Gold Coast than just beaches too, with plenty of cosy mountain escapes tucked away in the Gold Coast hinterland. Brisbane enjoys a subtropical climate and can also be hot and humid during summer. Winter is a fantastic time to visit Brisbane, and the months between June and October are the driest.
