here are some of my standard web sites for weather information in Australia:

Bureau of Meteorology - Tide Predictions

Bureau of Meteorology -Weather and Warnings

www.seabreeze.com.au - A funky site that gives graphic presentations of:
  • the predicted wind direction & strength
  • wave height & direction
  • tides and moon phases
hour by hour for the coming 7 days.

eg Sunshine Coast (N of Brisbane).

Designed for windsurfers and kite surfers, but who cares.

Bureau of Meteorology - Climate averages (eg average temperatures, wind rose for each month) for hundreds of locations. eg Hamilton Island near the Great Barrier Reef.

Bureau of Meteorology "BlueLink" - ocean currents and ocean temperatures around Australia

It covers all the coast around Australia, plus Australian territories (Norfolk Island, Cocos & Keeling Islands, etc).

The area covered extends from the Solomon Islands to Java in Indonesia.

Of course, none of these replace a professional weather routing service for planning off shore passages.

Hope the weather is kind to you.
