Darwin in the Top End of the Northern Territory, unlike other regions only has two distinct seasons.

 

The Wet Season (November - April)

The wet season in Darwin is characterised by high humidity, monsoonal rains and storms. Average temperatures range from 25 - 32 degrees and humidity can reach past 80 percent. January is the wettest month of the wet season, although it is considered by many as the most beautiful time of year. Sunny days are met with afternoon storms to make for a perfect environment for animals and plants to flourish. October to December is the season of lightning storms and locals eagerly watch the show from beachside restaurants and bars.

 

The Dry Season (May - October)

The dry season takes place from May to October. Characterised by warm, dry sunny days and cool nights, temperatures range from 17 - 23 degrees. This is the perfect time to explore the more remote areas of Darwin which can sometimes be closed due to the wet season.

There's no better way to embrace the relaxed vibes of Darwin than by attending local art and cultural events, festivals or lively outdoor markets.

  • Be entertained by the Darwin Festival.
  • Feed your appetite for fun at the Beer Can Regatta.
  • The Mindil Market will indulge your senses, try one of the incredible food stalls before taking a stroll down to the beach to catch a golden sunset.
