The ‘Top End’ of the Northern Territory is home to Darwin, Australia’s most multicultural city, boasting inhabitants from over 50 nations. This cosmopolitan make-up gives the small city a vibrant buzz and friendly atmosphere that visitors always enjoy. Nearby Darwin, the region is also site of the immense Kakadu National Park – Australia’s largest national park. This diverse landscape boasts grassy woodlands, gushing waterfalls, vast floodplains, towering clifftops, wildlife-rich wetlands and some of the world’s most famous Aboriginal rock-art sites, including Nourlangie Rock and Ubirr. It is well worth taking a few days to explore and appreciate this fascinating region.

When to Go to Darwin
Unlike the rest of the Northern Territory, the Top End, which includes Darwin as well as Kakadu and Katherine, has just two seasons, the wet and the dry. The dry season takes place from May to October and is ideal for visiting Darwin for dry and less humid conditions, and for seeing wildlife when on safari nearby. From November to April is when the wet season hits and is when you can see Darwin’s nearby waterfalls in full force and national parks looking vibrant green.
