Today's Weather
The climate is subtropical being just above the Tropic of Capricorn. The Whitsunday's are on the same Latitude as the Fiji Islands. They offer sunny tropical weather virtually all year round. The water temperature varies from 23°C in winter to 28°C in summer and the islands are protected from ocean swells by the Great Barrier Reef. Summers are hot and balmy with occasional showers, but even these are warm and refreshing. The trade winds are usually stronger between May and August, however you can expect sailing breezes almost every day.
The table below shows the tide times and depths for the week between January 05 - 11 (2005) for the SHUTE HARBOUR region of the Whitsundays. This information is a representative of the figures recorded and reported by Flinders University in Adelaide.
