2020/21 Tourist Season
Dry season (May- October)
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.
Wet season (November-April)
The wet season runs from November until April, and is characterised by high humidity, monsoonal rains and storms. Temperatures typically range from a minimum of 25°C to a maximum of 35°C. The period leading up to monsoonal rains is known as the 'build up': humidity levels skyrocket and amazing electrical storms promise, but don't deliver, rain. The heavy rains that follow come as welcome relief, and while water can restrict travel to some areas, the wet season is a stunning time of year to see the Top End. Waterfalls tumble, skies host incredible light shows, and the landscape turns a lush green.
