Christmas in Cairns – FAQs
We regularly get questions about holidays in Far North Queensland over Christmas.
Here are some of the more frequent and our answers.
Is the area busy at Christmas?
Many people love spending Christmas up here because there’s just so much to do. Everything is open and full of life and vitality. It’s one of Far North Queensland’s busiest times of the year.
What about tours and attractions – are they busy?
We have numerous local contacts and can work wonders getting you tickets for this or that but not even we can always work wonders if things are left too late. So, as we always stress to our clients staying in our Cairns, Port Douglas or Palm Cove luxury accommodation every year at Christmas time – BOOK EARLY!
Is accommodation available on a ‘last minute’ basis?
It’s really impossible to say. So much depends
All we can say is
Once again, please forgive us for saying DON’T DELAY until the last minute before checking – unless you really have no alternative. If you do, you risk disappointment.
What’s the weather like?
December temperatures range from around the mid-20s up to the low 30s.
It’s also the first month where the rainy season starts to build but the average rainfall is far lower than in say January or February.
