General Info:

The best time to travel to Queensland is between April and May, the precipitation rate decreases allowing comfortable days while still avoiding the busy tourist season that comes in the dry season (November-March).



Earth is 71% ocean and only 29% dry land. There are five oceans on Earth; these are the Pacific, the Atlantic, the Indian, the Arctic, and the Southern Ocean. Many believe the ocean biome to be the oldest of the biomes, and therefore, the origin of life on Earth.


The oceans range in temperature depending on the latitude and time of year, but the overall average is 39 degrees fahrenheit. Solar radiation affects temperature because light from the sun increases the temperature of the water. 90% of the ocean is completely dark and receives no sunlight. The average precipitation rate is around 1992 mm a year, mostly in January and March. Water conditions can pose a risk to swimmers especially during the November-March timeline, where water visibility is reduced. This poses a risk because swimmers can not see box jellyfish, which are highly poisonous. There are two "seasons" of the ocean which are "dry" and "wet." The dry season is from May to October, and the wet season is from November to March.



There are two types of ocean currents; surface and deep water. "Surface" is defined as the upper 400 meters of ocean, and "Deep Water" as the other 90% of the ocean. Deep Water currents are formed around ocean basins by density driven forces and gravity. Solar heating, gravity, wind, and coriolis are the main forces behind all oceanic currents. Wind currents also affect water currents as seen in this animation:
