It is a totally different experience, especially January and February is when most rainfalls tend to occur and the pastures turns green and the water holes fill up and the creeks and rivers flow. These days with improved roads Croydon is rarely cut-off for any period of time. Coming from Cairns and Georgetown ocassional short road closures occur and from Normanton it may be a day or two. Drivers should be aware localized flooding may occur after heavy rain.
Temparture in January February can slightly cooler than December or March and humidity in the region isn't to bad as it is a drier heat and when the storms front come through you may experience some pretty amazing lightening shows.
