Queensland has five different climate zones. Rockhampton, smack on the Tropic of Capricorn falls into the dry tropical variety. There’s no peak tourist season as such. While not subject to the searing heat of the Australian Outback, it get’s pretty warm (30–32 degrees Celsius throughout the day). If you want the sunny season, visit between October and March. It rains heavily then too, so bring light clothing and easy footwear.
