Being the Northern Territory’s unhurried capital, Darwin serves colourful & fun outdoor adventures everywhere you go. You’ll find strong First Nation cultures here, as evidenced by the array of languages spoken in the streets and the vibrant First Nation art that fills the city’s galleries, museums and streetscapes. Being close to Asia, you can find plenty of Asian influenced products. The Darwin region, like much of the Top End, experiences a tropical climate with a wet and dry season. A period known locally as “the build up” leading up to Darwin’s wet season sees temperature and humidity increase. Darwin’s wet season typically arrives in late November to early December and brings with it heavy monsoonal downpours, spectacular lightning displays, and increased cyclone activity. During the dry season, the city has clear skies and mild sea breezes from the harbour.
Also, Darwin is home to some spectacular National Parks where you can book a tour and appreciate the beauty of nature, including Kakadu National Park, Litchfield National Park and Katherine Gorge.
