The rainy season can be the best time to visit Far North Queensland. To many people, the rainy season means hot, wet and humid weather, but they are missing the point. The rain seems to wash the deadening heat out of the day leaving the Daintree Rainforest glistening and smelling so fresh.
The rain rejuvenates and revitalises the Rainforest and brings new life in the shape of many colourful fungi sprouting everywhere. For waterfalls lovers, you are in for a treat. The Bloomfield Falls are infinitely better during the rainy season and the trip there makes a great off road adventure.
Everywhere you turn there are vibrant greens to appreciate.
The rainy season also means less visitors in the area and less people on tours for an even more personal experience, many times you will be the only ones on board…much like a private charter without the added cost.
Now you may think it unlucky to get a few days of wet weather but there’s plenty you can do here on a wet day.
Don’ t think that it will mean sitting in your room and just watching a video or the TV. because the chances are that you are likely not to hear it anyway because of the rain which will fall intermittently and be quite loud.
Rain always looks worse from a hotel room so get out and indulge in an ice cream, the weather is warm anyway, no need for that jumper or coat, enjoy a hike, hire a bicycle and enjoy the area and our endless Four Mile Beach, have a massage or a spa, have a long lunch and relax, visit a wildlife park and meet some Australian local wildlife, take a day trip to the Great Barrier Reef and enjoy the warm water (you’re going to get wet anyway!) have a coffee or a drink in a nearby watering hole, introduce yourself to a local. You’ll know the locals from their laid back kind of style and you’ll be amazed at how friendly we are and how much you can find out of what’s happening in our area.
Even better, visit The Daintree Rainforest.
Some people have an apprehension about travelling during the rainy season but don’t worry if it rains! You can do everything in wet season that you can in dry season. Not every day is sunny, but every day can be great! The rain may be a quick heavy downpour lasting an hour, and then the rest of the day could be fine. Some days are like that, some have no rain, some are just grey and drizzly and sometimes there’s a wonderful rainbow at the end. It’s tropical weather, and we don’t get all that green without rain.
Enjoy the Daintree Rainforest, Great Barrier Reef and our area.
