The Autumn season falling between March and May is perfect for budget travellers, as this is off-peak season in the town. It is also the best time to visit the nearby Daintree Rainforest. However this time period sees a lot of rainfall as well. December to February is a great time to enjoy both the Great Barrier Reef owing to the sunshine of the Summer season.
