Things To Do

Darwin and Surrounds

Darwin’s weather is delightful during May with blue skies, balmy breezes and temperatures hovering in the low 30s in the day and mid-20s after dark. It’s still tropical weather when the rest of the country has to pull out the boots and scarves.

It’s also party season for the Top End with lots happening around town and many iconic nature and adventure activities on offer in the stunning tropical landscape of Northern Australia.

A visit to Darwin can be done without a car as well-located hotels, a hop-on/hop-off tourist bus, and hosted day trips  make it easy to get around.
