I am planning a trip for 4/5 days to Cairns/ Great Barrier Reef.
I am a little put off by the severity of the raining season. Is it worth a risk? Does it rain all day or just in the afternoons?
I will be in Sydney and wanted to escape somewhere else warm in Australia somewhere close-ish as opposed to Perth which is too far to travel. If not Cairns, where else is warm and sunny without the risk of so much rain...
