Struggling to get your head around the top time of year to visit Townsville? Here’s a handy guide to the weather and the peak times for everything from diving to sightseeing.
May to October.
Townsville experiences 320 days of sunshine a year. But between November and April temperatures start to spike up to the 27°C mark and humidity soars.
In May, the mercury settles down to daytime averages of around 23°C. Between June and August daily lows of 16°C can occur, which makes for great sightseeing weather.
Visit at this time of year and you'll also dodge Townsville’s cyclone season, which is at its peak in April.
Townsville's climate is tropical, but due to its position it doesn’t experience quite as much rainfall as other tropical regions.
Winter runs from June to August when daily highs reach between 20 and 23°C and lows sink to 16°C.
In summer – September to May – temperatures are higher, with the hottest months clocking up tops in the high 20s and early 30s.
The humidity leads to thunderstorms in October and November, and cyclone season takes place from November to April. Severe cyclones are rare, however.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
