Darwin is a very popular holiday destination for us "southerners" to escape our winter blues. Many overseas visitors and backpackers come to Darwin as it is the gateway to world famous Kakadu National Park and also to nearby Litchfield National Park. .
The climate in Darwin is close to perfect between May and October with warm dry days around 30C and mild nights of about 20C. The "green season" from November to April can be more challenging for visitors because of the high humidity, torrential downpours and even the occassional cyclone.
The National Parks can be closed during the wet season with some roads closed due to localised flooding. Also be aware that saltwater crocodiles can inhabit rivers and estuaries and box jellyfish are present in the sea from October to May.
The best swimming advise I got from locals it to do so only where it's tiled... just to be on the safe side from resident "salties".
Darwin is also home of the excellent Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory with Aboriginal Culture, maritime history exhibits and an haunting Cyclone Tracy Gallery.
