Despite it’s distance from other Australian capital cities, Darwin is a vibrant multi-cultural destination with so much more to offer than just being the gateway to Kakadu National Park, Litchfield National Park, Katherine Gorge, the Tiwi Islands & Arnhem Land.
Having a tropical Savannah climate means Darwin has a distinct wet and dry season, and boasts a year round average temperature in the mid to low 30°C, with the best time to visit being the Dry Season from roughly May through to September when the humidity is generally less than 30%.
Darwin has a rich indigenous, colonial, aviation and World War 2 (military) history, and having been rebuilt four times (thanks to three major cyclones including Tracy in 1974 and Japanese bombing raids during WW2) the city has an eclectic mix of architecture. Darwin and it’s surrounding suburbs host an array of museums, wildlife attractions, markets, parks and recreational facilities, as well as a diverse range of pubs, clubs, bars, restaurants & cafes.
