Cassowary Coast Climate

There are two seasons on the Cassowary Coast – wet and dry. 

The mean daily maximum temperature ranges from 27°C (80°F) to 29.6°C (85°F) while the average daily minimum is between 16.8°C (62°F) and 20.9°C (69°F).

The mean annual rainfall is 3,134mm (123 inches), almost all of which falls in the wet season (between January and mid-April).

The township of Tully holds the nation’s annual rainfall record with a 7.93m dumping in 1950. There is an 8m golden gumboot monument at the town’s entrance.

Our high rainfall and resulting humidity mean lush tropical forests and many streams.  The area abounds in natural beauty and is home to 2 world heritage areas, the Wet Tropics rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.
