Weather in October - Sydney, Cairns area

Hi,

I find that most guide books talk about weather until Sept and then mention Nov-Mar. There is mostly no description of what to expect in October. We are planning to be there in mid Oct (Sydney, Cairns, Kangaroo Island). What can we expect weather wise? Hope no rains, other than that cold or hot we are quite ok.

Thanks!

Leading up to Summer - Generally a little warmer as you go north.

The weather is as unpredictable here as the rest of the world, but it's not cyclone season where you're going.

kdd,

In a nutshell.-

Sydney in mid-October is springtime. Generally pleasant weather, mild temperatures (low 20s C) maybe rainy, maybe not, never can tell from year to year.

Cairns is in the tropical zone, in October the weather is usually still not too humid, temperatures in mid-high 20s C during the days, can be windy at this time of year because of the SE tradewinds, but cyclone season is a few months away (usually). Plenty to keep you busy on water or land.

Kangaroo Island is way down south, you can get any type of weather out of the Great Australian Bight at any time of the year. Woollies, wind/rain gear, just in case, if you are doing lots of walking on the southern and western coasts. Again, you never know, it may just as well be fine and mild in October. A beautiful place, though.

Have a nice trip.
