Darwin, the capital of Australia's Northern Territory, is an exciting multicultural city. It is vibrant and culturally diverse, providing visitors and locals alike with a quality adventurous lifestyle.
All year round warm weather, natural attractions such as the world heritage listed Kakadu National Park, Litchfield and Nitmiluk national parks, the Tiwi Islands and Arnhem Land make Darwin the perfect base to explore the wonders of the top end.
Since its founding in 1869, Darwin has continued to build on its rich history. World War II is a significant marker in the city's personality with relics from this troubled time still very evident in and around the city. In 1974 Cyclone Tracy devastated the Darwin. From the ruins, a modern and cosmopolitan city emerged and has made Darwin what it is today. The city continues to grow, attracting people from all over the world wanting to be part of the dynamic and progressive culture that exists.
The rich mix of nationalities has enhanced the lifestyle for all offering the first time visitor the opportunity to experience the diversity through the restaurants, markets, festivals and events that have made Darwin a unique destination.
Darwin has a Tropical savanna climate with distinct wet and dry seasons and the average maximum temperature 28 - 30°C is similar all year round.
The dry season runs from April/May to October (the southern hemisphere winter), during which nearly every day is a warm and sunny 26 - 28°C, and afternoon humidity averages around 30%, but varies.
There is very little rainfall between May and September. In the coolest months of June and July, the daily minimum temperature may dip as low as 14 °C (57 °F), but very rarely lower, and frost has never been recorded.
The Wet season is associated with Tropical cyclones and monsoon rains. The majority of rainfall occurs between December and March (the southern hemisphere summer), when thunderstorms are common and afternoon relative humidity averages over 70% during the wettest months. It does not rain every day during the wet season, but most days are a warm to hot 29 - 33°C with plentiful cloud cover; January averages under 6 hours of bright sunshine daily.
The hottest month is November, just before the onset of the main rainy season. Due to its long dry season, Darwin has the most daily average sunshine hours (8.4) of any Australian capital with the most sunshine from April to November. The sun passes directly overhead in mid October and mid February. Climatically Darwin has more in common with Singapore than Sydney as it sits well inside the tropical zone.
Darwin is located in one of the most lightning prone areas in the world. In 2002 a single thunderstorm produced 1,634 lightning strikes in Darwin in just a few hours, which is the same amount that Perth, Western Australia, experiences in an entire year.
