Daintree Coast Weekly Report 30/6 - 6/7

Sorry no report last week, too busy and didn’t get to it until Friday

The weather on the Daintree Coast has been a mixed bag last week, with some sunny days, and some days with misty rain. Today looks good with the sun shining, and the outlook is for fine weather later in the week. The days are cool and even with high humidity, it is comfortable weather, even for southerners!

The wind is forecast to ease on Tuesday and Wednesday, and the strengthen on Thursday, so those wanting to visit the reef should try to do so on Tuesday or Wednesday.

The forest is looking great and there have been lots of good croc sightings on river cruises and nightwalks this week, and many Cassowaries seen as well.
