Humidity in December in Airlie Beach?

by dbrummer Online Now Oct 12, 2009 at 5:02 PM

Hi guys

We live in Cairns and we were thinking of camping in Airlie for the period over Christmas, just a week. What is the humidity like, as Cairns is stinking hot over that time.

If someone who has been in both town can shed some light, that would be great.

Thanks
D

    Been to both places but never at the same time. The conventional wisdom: from November to March most of coastal Qld is humid.

    Airlie over Xmas is at least as hot as Cairns. In Cairns you do get some sea breezes but in Airlie you are pretty protected. Why don't you camp on one of the islands out in the Whitsundays? That way you will get the breezes and can go swimming at any time.

    Hi,I live in Cairns too,so welcome to VT.I have been down to Airlie in December and have not noticed any difference with both places regarding the heat and humidity.So if you plan to go take this into consideration.If you were camping near one of the far norths rivers then it would be a bit cooler.Not much escape in my opinion.
