The Green Season in the Daintree

On the night of Saturday 20th 2010, Cape Tribulation received 256mm of rain, or about 10 inches in the old money. This is entirely normal for this time of the year, and not a really big fall. Our record for a day, set in 1981, is 818mm, or about 33 inches!

In fact the road was open again at about 4pm, despite one remaining low level causeway at Cooper Creek. This causeway will be raised this year, and make the road nearly an all weather prospect.

A pleasant morning spent paddling around the Cape, exploring the coastline of the Daintree, where the rainforest meets the reef.
