Best Time to Visit Darwin

The best time to visit Darwin is from April to September when the season is dry, festivals are inviting and there is no risk of tropical cyclones and floods. Obviously, the flip side is the crowds that frequent Darwin during these months and the increased prices due to the peak tourist season. However, the festivals in the city almost make up for these few glitches.

If you go during August, you’ll get to enjoy the Darwin Fringe Festival and the Festival of Darwin, and you can also be a part of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards which usually takes place between August-October. Visiting in June will give you the opportunity to partake in the Darwin Blues Festival and will also leave you fascinated when you witness participants building boats using empty cans of beer, soft drinks and the like in the Beer Can Regatta.

The confusion arises when you contest whether or not to go during the wet season which is from October-March. Arguments in support of the debate would include reasons such as reduced prices, Barramundi Fishing, amazing landscape and of course, no maddening tourist traffic to shield yourself from. However, if you want to build your case on solid grounds, reasons which prove spoilsport for your trip are bound to be torrential downpour flooding the Top End, increased levels of humidity, tropical cyclones and fear of the fatal Box Jelly Fish or Marine Stringers which prevents you from stepping into the Ocean.
