Weather & Seasons in the Northern Territory

To get the most out of your time in the Northern Territory, we could recommend visiting during the dry season, which is between May and October. 

It's worth noting that due to the Northern Territory's wet season (monsoonal rains and tropical storms) the Apollo Darwin and Alice Springs branches have a seasonal closure each year between late December and the end of March. The Darwin and Alice Springs branches then re-open at the start of the dry season on the 1st of April each year. 

The Northern Territory has two distinct climates - the tropical Top End (Darwin) and the semi-arid Red Centre (Alice Springs).  The Northern Territory's capital, Darwin, has an average temperature of 32 degrees Celsius year round, but weather is more mild during the dry season. It's important to remember that no matter when you visit the Northern Territory, we would recommend that you stay hydrated, be sun smart and dress for the conditions.
