Weather in Darwin

Darwin is dominated by two distinct seasons: the wet season, which runs from early November to the end of March, and the dry season from April to October. Expect hours of torrential rain daily during the wet season, and very high humidity. The dry season is characterised by cool crisp nights and warm days. Visit at the start or end of the dry season to avoid the tourist crowds. May is best time if you want to explore the bush but the wet season is ideal to experience flowers in bloom, wildlife mating and breeding, and raging waterfalls.

  • 71 to 80 is moderate
  • 81 to 90 is moderate to high
