Darwin

Arrival guide to Darwin

The tropical city of Darwin is Australia’s northern most capital city. It’s a city that likes its outlaw status for doing things a bit differently to the rest of Australia.

It has a tough past after being bombed in World War 2 and being virtually flattened by a cyclone in 1974. The isolation has instilled a tough exterior yet it is a very inclusive place. Cultures seem to have historically blended here. There’s been a need for mutual self-reliance.

There’s a distinct green or wet season here (November-March) and the dry season of (April-October). Most people travel here in the dry season when the humidity lowers and access and travel to tourist sites in the Litchfield and Kakadu National Parks improves.

Darwin is the perfect point at which to enter Australia, especially if you are travelling overland or via Asia. It’s so close to Bali, Indonesia, and indeed the entire city echoes the cultures and climate of Australia more so than  the other southern cities of Australia.
