Darwin is the capital of Northern Territory, a state in Australia the locals like to refer to as “The Top End”. Situated at the edge of the Timor Sea, the city is closer to Bali than any of Australia's other major capitals. The city's isolation has meant that its population has always been low. However, Darwin is home to many great landmarks and attractions. The city of Darwin acts very much as a gateway city. It is a gateway to the wild outback Australian adventures, it is the gateway to the Aboriginal Dreamtime, and it is also the gateway to a relaxed state of mind that you can only appreciate once you’re here.
The ideal time to visit Darwin, weather-wise, would be during the cooler dry season which runs from April to September. However, this period is quite popular among tourists, so booking flights and accommodations well in advance is highly recommended as prices might increase. If you are looking to avoid the crowd, the best time would be in early April. Although the temperatures in Darwin might be higher during that time.
