    Perth water temp max 22 celsius
    Cairns water temp 28+ celsius

    I'd go with the 3/2mm

    I see and concede your point.

    Nobody realises how BIG an island Australia is.

    Not sure what the funny red blotch is though
    Any dive you survive is a good dive

    Pick up a cheap 3mm shorty in Cairns?
    ROTFLOL...you won't find a cheap 3mm in this rip-off town. BUT...that is what you want. Now is poisonous jellyfish season so you MUST be covered...but with water temps 28-30c a 5mm will be damn uncomfy.

    It's a birth mark

    I'm sure some of the out of town companies could have you a cheap 3mm short & sting suit shipped to your hotel if you asked them nice...

    I guess' I'm still very much a new diver, I've never really thought of being "too warm" in a wetsuit.
    Too bulky, yes, but I'm only warm on the surface, never in the water... even in a full 3mm in 80 degree water. I guess 5mm are very different?
