Daydream Island in January?

Considering Daydream Island in January for a wedding anniversary.... Unsure if this is the best destination at this time of year - is it cyclone season? How badly does this area get affected by the weather/cyclone action?

Jan is the worst month to visit this region. Its cyclone season.. you may be lucky to get it dry but it's highly likely it will rain. Although the tropical showers are usually light and short lived. Another consideration is that its also stinger season.

www.marinestingers.com.au Stinger season is approximately between October to March every year in the hotter months. A stinger suit must be worn when swimming in the Whitsundays during this time.

Actually from personal experience Feb is slightly worse

Early jan can be great...

I hate it when people push stinger suits... the biggest reef danger is the star that is the centre of our universe

I think you should look at alternative destinations or consider postponing your visit due to possible rain/ cyclones and stingers.
