When to go to Hamilton Island

Summer is the time of the most rainfall and it also can get pretty humid in North Queensland. There are also more marine stingers around the warmer the water gets.  From late August  the weather is warming up and swimming is getting more comfortable. 

Personally I love the whitsundays anytime. Even the wet season in February when the sky can get dark and dramatic and then clear away as quick as it comes.

Note on the dolphins: if you have been to Hamilton you would have noticed these quite unhappy dolphins and I am pleased that it appears they have been moved to a happier location.
