The area in which Daintree National Park is located has one of the wettest climates in Australia. During the “wet season”, from December to April, there are heavy, frequent downpours. Some areas receive over six metres of rainfall annually. Maximum temperatures through the wet season range from 27 to 33 degrees Celsius, with humidity often exceeding 80 percent.

The cooler, drier months, from May to September, are the best time to visit. The weather is pleasantly warm during this time, with reduced humidity and the maximum temperature averaging 26 degrees Celsius.

Temps in the rainforest are surprisingly mild due to the protective canopy layer of tall trees. The air is often humid but cool.

The highest recorded temperature is 36.7 degrees Celsius.
The lowest recorded temperature is 8.9 degrees Celsius.
Sea temperatures range from 23 degrees in July (winter) to 29 degrees in February (summer).
Daintree Village Longitude & Latitude is 16.2502° S, 145.3205° E

Casual resort style clothing is required and suitable footwear for walks. Warmer clothing is recommended for evenings during winter months (June-September). Bring sunscreen, hat and clothes for protection from the sun and repellent for mosquitos, sandflies and midges.
