11 reasons why you should definitely not visit Queensland in winter
If you have a strong attachment to your boots and beanies, you’re probably in the wrong place. Even though this is technically our ‘coldest time of year’, our balmy days are still hot, hot, hotter than most places around the world in the height of summer.
Sure, you might have to slip on a T-shirt instead of a singlet now and again, a pair of shoes instead of thongs, but with temps pushing towards 30°C (yep, check the weather, guys), you’ll be peeling off all those layers quicker than an onion at a Greek festival.
Just look at how us poor folk in Queensland are battling through the season (the struggle is not real).
Winter blues are just SO depressing. I mean, look at that water!
Heads up: You’ll be so weighed down with all those winter wears in your carry on…
… because when the coats come off, it’s boardies and bikinis all year round, baby.
You can’t just sit around in your onesie and Ugg boots scoffing pie. With days like this, there’s no time – or excuse – to hibernate up here.
Survival 101: Hefty doses of Vitamin D and salty seas does wonders for keeping pesky winter illnesses at bay.
The snowfall is woeful.
‘Tis the season of hot choccies and puddings? Guess again.
Snotty, flu-infested crowds for days.
Yep… the winter commute is tough.
Don’t forget to stay hydrated.
(FACT: As well as boasting a plethora of healthy nutrients, fresh coconut milk adds the perfect prop for an Insta snap that screams “My winter is better than yours”.)
Sun protection; such a drag. A floppy hat and long-sleeve tankini are just so bulky to pack.
