Darwin might just be the ultimate budget-break destination. There is so much about Darwin that’s not about spending money. Travel to Darwin during the wet season and nature puts on its own show. Watching the sky turn indigo as storms roll in over the harbor, basking under the flaming gold skies at sunset, oohing at the spectacular lightning shows or listening to the sound frogs croaking late into the night – all are wonderful and free. 

It’s also an excellent base to explore the nearby World Heritage listed lands – Kakadu National Park, Litchfield and Nitmiluk National Parks, the Tiwi Islands and Arnhem Land.

Best Time to Fly to Darwin

Peak Season:

The dry season – April/May through September/October – is when most people visit Darwin. The middle of the dry season is particularly busy. This is when schools are out and families vacation in the region. 

Off Season:

January, February and March are, in general, the off-peak season. This is the wettest time of the year and there’s also a good chance of hurricanes and floods. However, many consider this the best time to see Darwin. With the rains, the earth bursts into life. Flowers and plants bloom, animals mate and rivers fill up and run off onto teeming waterfalls.

Getting around Darwin

There are several car rental companies represented at Darwin International. A Shuttle Bus travels between the airport and hotels in Darwin city and bus/coach charters are also available. Visitors to Darwin can pick up a taxi from the taxi stand in front of the Terminal building.

It has often been said that Darwin is the only capital city in the country where you can cross the main street blindfolded at any time of the day (however, we don’t recommend trying that). Visitors to Darwin will discover that much of it is small enough to walk or bike around. Driving around Darwin is easy too. The layout is simple, traffic is generally light and parking is plentiful. There is a tourist bus called the Tour Tub that stops off at Darwin’s ten major destinations including Fannie Bay Gaol, George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens, Indo Pacific Marine and the Australian Pearling Exhibition.
