Port Douglas Travel Information

Port Douglas Weather & Climate

Port Douglas is situated 16 degrees south of the Equator and shares the same latitude and climate as Tahiti. The weather in Port Douglas is comfortable and tropical all year round, with maximum temperatures usually forecast at 31º C (88 F) in the summer and 26°C (79 F) in the winter.

During the cooler, dry season (May-October) the days are balmy and the evenings pleasantly cool (17-26ºC/63-79F). Winter days are filled with warm and sunny weather, which makes swimming at Four Mile Beach in the middle of July great to write home about!

The warmer green season temperatures usually occur in January, with the lowest temperatures occurring in June, July and August.

Summertime (November-April), or the 'green season' means warmer weather and restorative rain. The rainforest revitalises itself and the streams are replenished. Sea temperatures range from 23ºC in July to 28ºC in February. The green season is often dramatic, wildly beautiful and eagerly awaited by the flora and fauna of the tropical rainforests. Without our annual rainfall, there would be no rainforest and, as many visitors discover, our 'liquid sunshine' doesn't interfere with diving, snorkelling or touring.
