This time of the year is a full sensory experience in the tropics. The landscape has transformed to deep green tones of summer after the tropical rains, freshwater streams are ready for a cooling dip, the sounds of lively wildlife become the soundtrack for your road trip, and tropical produce is available everywhere.

Plan your visit to tropical north Queensland to experience the events on offer in February.

Your wildlife summer soundtrack will be temporarily interrupted by the smooth sounds of psychedelic-surf-rock from Ocean Alley, performing from 4-5 February for Cairns Summer Sounds. The following weekend, Australian folk singer-songwriter turned electro pop powerhouse, Vera Blue, headlines as the second featured artist on the 11 February.   

Not content to just listen? Test your musical knowledge with the live music trivia comedy show, RocKwiz Live also on the bill for Cairns Summer Sounds on 26 February. Hosts Julia Zemiro and Brian Nankervis have taken the show on the road with special guests, Dugald the roadie and the RocKwiz Orkestra to light up the stage.

Port Douglas is full of excitement for its annual LGBTQI+ celebration, the Port Douglas Hot and Steamy Festival. Making full use of the tropical humidity during February, the festival features events to get your dance on, events to cool you off poolside, and events with all the amazing tropical culinary delights you can think of.

Stock up on the exquisite summer produce at the Port Douglas Cotter’s Markets, held every Sunday morning at Rex Smeal Park. Established 35 years ago, the markets are perfect to load up on supplies for the RV, camper trailer, hotel mini bar, or esky; better yet, eat it straight away!
