How much rain in Great Barrier Reef areas January - March?

Jump to last reply

We plan to visit the area north of Brisbane to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef sometime in the January - March 2011 timeframe. When I look at average weather, it looked like it was rainy every day in the Port Douglas area. Also rainy further south, in the Whitsundays area, but somewhat less rainy.

What do you native Australians say? Is it really really rainy? How much? Every day, all day? Which area do you recommend we should go to for a couple days that include one full day at the Reef?

Thanks very much!
Sue
