Weather in the Top End of the Northern Territory is largely dictated by the annual monsoon cycle. While November to April is referred to as the ‘wet', and May to October is the ‘dry' season; in the vast expanse of Kakadu National Park, the local Aboriginal people recognise six different seasons. The dry season, from May until October, is characterised by warm, dry sunny days and cool nights. Temperatures typically range from 21°C to 32°C, and humidity levels are much lower. The Top End really comes alive at this time of year: the dry season heralds an outdoor-event extravaganza, with beachside markets, outdoor cinemas, festivals and concerts events all throwing wide their open-air doors. With so much going on, it’s a fun time to visit, as well as the perfect time to explore the more remote areas of the region that can be off-limits during the wet.
