Living In Darwin

Darwin, the capital of the Northern Territory, is dynamic, different, diverse and constantly evolving as Australia’s most cosmopolitan city. Its relaxed tropical lifestyle is enjoyed by a population of approximately 81, 670. Darwin is home to people from more than 60 nationalities and 70 different ethnic backgrounds. The city’s multicultural mix is particularly highlighted by its many exciting ethnic cultural festivals and weekly food and craft markets. Darwin’s traditional owners, the Larrakia people, are prominent and active members of the community, and many still adhere closely to their traditional beliefs and customs.

Darwin’s weather is perfect from May to September when mild and sunny days are followed by balmy nights – wonderful weather for enjoying the great outdoors, day and night. The dry season is also the peak tourist season when Darwin receives the most visitors. Being a monsoonal climate there is a distinctive wet season period, with most rain falling between December and March. There can be high intensity storms at this time, often providing spectacular lightning displays.
