Darwin really comes alive at this time of year as everyone makes the most of the clear skies and heads outdoors. Relatively cool weather arrives in May. Day time maximum temperatures of around 29 – 32 ℃ coupled with low humidity are perfect for sightseeing. Cool evenings make the outdoor options all the more attractive, and overnight temperatures of 17 – 23 ℃ ensure a pleasant start to each day.

This is a great time to recline in a deckchair and watch a movie under the stars at the open-air Deckchair Cinema or watch the sunset over the Timore Sea after visiting the famous Mindil Beach Markets.

It is also the perfect time to explore the more remote areas of the region that can be off-limits during the wet.
