    Default Cooroibah Tide Times

    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know how to calculate the tides for Lake Cooroibah? I see Willyweather has tides for various sections of the Noosa river until Tewantin.

    Does anyone know how much time difference there is between Tewantins tides and Lake Cooroibahs?

    Thanks

    Yes, as chewy says, but lake Cooriobah is the first lake and it will be somewhere between the two, so no idea is the answer. If I was to take a guess, I'd get Tewantin tides and add 2 hours, but that's a guess.

    I would say 15-20 minutes later than Tewantin.

    Noosa Hd is the standard port.

    Tewantin (secondary) has a time lag of 1.07 hrs for high tide and 1.49 hrs for low tide. Just add those times to Noosa Hd times for Tewantin.

    Cooriobah is approx 5 km upstream from Tewantin so add about 15 minutes to Tewantin times.

    That makes Cooriobah approx. + 1.20 min for high tide wrt to Noosa Hd high water times.

    And makes Cooriobah approx. + 2 .00 hrs for low tide wrt Noosa Hd low water times.

    The tides at Tewantin are not 6 hrs in and 6 hours out. They're 40 minutes off 6 hours. Therefore i/c tidal stream is a bit faster than o/g tidal stream to maintain the 12 hour cycle.

    At Rockhampton City (50km from Fitzroy mouth) the tide times are roughly 5 hours in and 7 hours out. I/c tidal stream runs like crazy. O/g tidal stream is slower taking an extra 2 hours to drain out the water that the i/c stream put in there in 5 hours.

    Not rocket science.

    Be careful with Willy weather. They're reviewing all of their secondary port times and tide heights because they were basing them on the incorrect datums in some places along the coast.

    From Willy weather on 11 Nov. They'd been working on the problem I'd pointed out to them for about 4 - 5 months. Use MSQ tide tables if you want correct tide info until its sorted out.

    Hi Ron

    We haven't forgotten our discussions on this and thank you again for the precise information you provided. We are waiting on a full database update before the Fitzroy River situation can be resolved. This will be the first update in some years. It is a major undertaking with high potential for disruption of our service. Every change has to be checked and cross checked, and there are thousands of changes, but hopefully we'll have the update done in the next few months.
    best regards
