Location description from owner

The Top End region

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.

“An excellently positioned and beautifully furnished haven”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2013

Aircon in the main bedroom struggled in comparison to the other rooms but all in all, we couldn't fault it.

Owner's reply: Yes, unfortunately a leak was detected in the aircon on the day of departure, which was luckily repaired on the same day before the next guest arrived! I apologise for any inconvenience caused during the nights that the aircon was not working to full capacity. Thank you for submitting your feedback and I am glad that you enjoyed the apartment and your stay in Darwin.

“Fantastic Apartment”

Reviewed 4 Apr 2013

Our stay in Darwin was made better by the Wharf 2 Apartment. The position was excellent and the apartment was spacious and well appointed. Everything needed for a relaxing holiday was provided. Many evenings were spent on the balcony watching the spectacular lightning display. The views of the Lagoon and Convention Centre were breathtaking. Just a short stroll and you were in Darwin city. We would highly recommend Wharf Escape Apartments to anyone interested in a fantastic relaxing holiday. We are already planning a return holiday to beautiful Darwin and Wharf Escape Apartments will definitely be on our list. Cheers Alan,Brian,Greg and Gianni

“Amazing apartment in fabulous location”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2013

Darwin Wharf Apartments are situated in a great location to the city and all the tourist sites. The Apartment itself is beautiful - very spacious, clean and with everything you need. It has a fabulous outdoor balcony with beautiful views over the lagoon (swimming area) and the Restaurants, Cafe & Bar areas are within a short stroll from the Apartment. The owner is very accommodating and was immediately responsive to any request during our stay. Would thoroughly recommend the Charles Darwin "Sunset Cruise/Dinner" which leaves from the Stokes Hill Wharf just a short walk from the Apartment. The only negative is that there is no convenience store located in or near the Apartment and thus groceries or supplies need to be purchased from the supermarket in the city centre which is a reasonable walk, especially in the heat. (Maybe that was in the planning of the complex). All in all we had a wonderful 5 days and would not hesitate to return.

“Couldn't rate it highly enough”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2013

Excellently located with all mod cons. Walk to centre of city in minutes. Great views, swimming at the door. No property is closer to the wharf, which is an easy few minutes walk. But you don't need to leave the building or walk very far as there are approximately 10 decent (good) restaurants either in the building or the building next door. We were there in the middle of the wet and were never uncomfortable (in doors!). Lots of nice touches like picnic gear and esky, fishing rods, prams and cots (if you need them). Great kitchen and laundry. The property was extremely clean, tidy and nicely presented. Secure parking. The booking agent was spot on and made everything really easy.

“Accommodation and area was just fabulous.”

All I can really say is that I have not yet stayed at a better place until now. First class. Very clean. Has everything in the apartment. For a family it is amazing on what they do not cater for.Has a perfect view. lovely breeze that comes through. I cannot find another place really to stay at. Even our friends who live in Darwin mentioned how amazing it was. Not expensive on the pocket like others. I am looking for our next visit. Well done Nicolette for having a really nice place.
