Did you know we recognise 12 seasons rather than four – one for every month of the year.

Weather & tides

Wujal Wujal has a tropical climate all year round with an average temperature between 23°C and 30°C. 

Wujal Wujal is a beautiful place to stay and visit, but it's important to know we have wet, dry, fire and cyclones in our region.


Seasonal conditions 

Wet season – November to March

The town and surrounding communities can be inaccessible due to flooding in the wet season.

Dry season – April to August

The winter months are the dry season in North Queensland. The weather is usually warm to hot during the day, but be prepared for some cool nights.

Fire season – July to December

There is a greater risk of bush fires during the fire season in the hottest months of the year.

Storm and cyclone season – November to April

Storms and tropical cyclones are most likely to occur in the warm, tropical months of summer. 


You can check the latest weather on the Weatherzone website.

Weather warnings are also available from the Bureau of Meteorology.

To be certain of local conditions on the ground and up-to-the-minute advice, please contact us at the Council.


Bloomfield River 

Access in and out of Wujal Wujal can be cut off during the wet season if the Bloomfield Track is flooded. Locals using the Creb Track can also become isolated.

You can check whether the Bloomfield and Creb Tracks are open on the Douglas Shire Council website.


Tide times

To check tide times around the Bloomfield River visit the Bureau of Meterology. Check tide times for Port Douglas and add 15 minutes for the Bloomfield River.

The Council recommends that a tide higher than 2.5m would make it dangerous to try to cross the Bloomfield River.
