Best Time To Visit Great Barrier Reef

What is the best time to visit Great Barrier Reef?

June to October is the best time to visit the Great Barrier Reef. During these months, the weather is exceptionally favourable, and the chances of rainfall are low. As it is the coast, summer and monsoons are damp and humid while winters are too cold for any water sports or beach activities. Hence, spring is a great time to go diving, swimming and snorkelling. The Spring is the time when the island is colourful with lush greenery making it the peak season to travel too. If you're a budget traveller and need more private tour on the reef, try visiting around April and early May.
