Destination Guide - Darwin
Many visitors to Darwin pause only for a moment before beginning their journey to the Top End’s famous national parks, but there are plenty of reasons to stay and play in this dynamic part of the Northern Territory. It’s easy to become immersed in the environment because so much activity takes place outdoors: dine al fresco at Cullen Bay Marina, visit the Mindil Beach Markets at twilight, see the sun set while mixing with the locals, or get soaked after a session of lightning spotting during the wet season.
Dry season (April to October) temperatures average around 30°C while the wet season (December to March) is humid and, well, wet; however, temperatures remain around 30-35°C.
Getting there and around
Hiring a car is economical and a great way to explore the greater area. There are also bus and taxi services available.
