Winter in Cape Tribulation

Winter is coming! Well to everyone else, but not to Tropical North Queensland. We enjoy average daily temperatures of 22-26 degrees Celsius during winter in Cape Tribulation. It is a tough life but I guess someone has to do it!

So while you are sitting on the train on the way to work, wearing your 5 layers of clothing, let me show you what we will be doing in Cape Tribulation this winter…

 

Spotting Crocodiles

During winter crocodiles spend more time sunning themselves on the banks of the Daintree River. Spot the big boys and see which hatchlings have survived their first months. Our daily Cape Tribulation tour enjoys an afternoon cruise on the Daintree River.

Close encounters

Winter is the dry season in Tropical North Queensland, enjoy the sunshine and open immersion exhibits at Wildlife Habitat where they literally put YOU in the ZOO! Lots of opportunities for close encounters with over 100 species of Australia animals.

BEST coastal drive in Australia

The Great Barrier Reef Drive offers amazing views. This is the only place in the world where two World Heritage listed sites are on either side of you!

Having FUN!

OK so fun is not just restricted to the winter time in Tropical North Queensland, but both the daily and night time weather certainly encourages exploration and outside activities; and no fires, beanies, gloves, scarfs or jackets are required!
