It will be very warm, perhaps about 30 everyday. the big difference I find with down south is that the temperature does not drop as much for the night.

Humidity will be high and sometimes can be over the top.

Dec Jan will be a very busy time with families on holidays enjoying the reef and rainforests. This is actually one of the best times to be in Cairns aas all the trees are flowering so mother natures animals are out and about and foraging and having babies the ocean is coral spawniing so the marine life are going nuts, the prawns and Barra are running along with the Black Marlin and Sailfish. Great time to see crocodiles as well as it is their mating season and they are hungry and excitable. It usually rains at night time and the days are mostly beautiful and sunny with pockets of regions experiencing rain as after all it is the tropics. Temps are the same as Thailand and Bali really.
