#FastFacts: Rain in the Daintree Rainforest
Rainforests are…rainy, right? Up in the Daintree, we see a lot of rain, but how much of that is affected by the forest itself? Or the Great Barrier Reef?
Here’s our friendly ambassador, Joe Reichl, giving us his take on the rain and the cycle of water up in the Daintree for one of our #FastFacts: Rain in the Daintree video.
A significant amount of rain falls in the Daintree Rainforest to sustain the natural habitat. The average annual rainfall in the Daintree rainforest is approximately 2000mm (79in) per year. Some areas have even recorded up to 9000mm (345in) in a single year. The wet season is between December and March. Over 60% of the rain falls during this wet season.
