Central Australia has its coldest weather from June to mid August. The days are crisp and clear and approximately 25 degrees during the day, but can drop to minus 5 degrees at night and in the early morning prior to sunrise. This is still a very popular time to travel, as it is not too hot during the day.
A recommendation for Central Australia is the months of April-May or September-October. You will find temperatures during the day and night are nice and warm plus it is still very easy to embark on some fabulous walks and touring during these months.
The Top End has two significant seasons, those being the Wet and the Dry Season. Traditionally, the dry season (May to October) is the most popular time for visitors to explore the Top End Region. With cooler day time temperatures of 27 – 32 degrees and low humidity levels, this is the perfect time to explore and experience the many attractions to be found in the region.
During the months of November to April, the “wet season”, you can expect afternoon storms and higher humidity. The rain brings on a completely different experience and waterfalls that are inaccessible by road become a spectacular experience by scenic flight. Our green season, as we like to call it, is the best time of year to see tropical rainforests at their finest. The lush green canopy offers cool relief and the streams, waterfalls and billabongs make ideal stop offs for a swim (bit hesitant about making references to swimming during wet season as there tends to be closures to protect against crocs).
