Brisbane is Australia's sunniest capital, with an average of 300 days of sunshine a year. It's no wonder Queensland is known as the "Sunshine State". Our sub-tropical summers and mild winters (with little need for heavy clothing) make the city a fabulous place to visit all year round.

The summer months of December, January and February can be warm and humid, with a daytime average temperature of 26-30C. During winter, from June to August, daytime temperatures are mild (averaging 23C) with cool evenings and early mornings.
