The Daintree region has one of the wettest climates in Australia. It has two distinct seasons, the annual ‘wet’ which involves heavy and frequent downpours from December to April, and the cooler, drier period from May to September.
The climate is tropical all year, with maximum temperatures around 32 C in summer and 25 C in winter.
With rainfall in some areas during the wet season of over six metres, the region is popular with visitors during the more pleasant, less humid period when the days are balmy and the evenings are tolerably cool.
Casual resort-style clothing is advised by day, with footwear suitable for walking, and warmer wraps for cooler evenings. Always carry hats, sunscreen and bug repellents.
