Darwin is Australia’s northern most capital city and it feels a bit removed from the rest of the country, but that’s one of its charms. It has two seasons - wet and dry. Wet season from October to April is monsoonal, hot and humid. Dry season from May to September has a more pleasant temperature and is less humid.
There's more to Darwin than first meets the eye. We've listed the top 5 attractions for those who are short on time. If you're staying more than a day, and we suggest you do, read on for the full list. We've also included a list of the best Darwin Caravan Parks - those that score 4 stars or more from reviewers - along with their rates and facilities. Enjoy!
