Above click on "Topics", "Wheather" then "Weipa" and all will be reveiled.
Here's the direct link. Explore Oz weather
18 to 31 degrees on average so a light sleeping bag or inner sheet will normally do. For more detail visit the BOM site

Better check out places like Musgrave as well (can be found on same web link). It's a bit nippier than Weipa at that time of year.

You will still need the sleeping bags when travelling up there through central QLD, even on the coast it can get pretty nippy overnight.

And crocs ......

But seriously, a self inflating mattress(s) sheets and a light blanket for the early mornings is all that will be needed.

Enjoy

I have been to the cape many times and find a summer weight bag to be adequate the nights can get cool down the bottom end but on average the night temps are about 17-20 and even warmer up the top.
I have been in port Douglas and the night temps have been as low as 5 or 6 .

All the best
