When to go

Action Asia - - AUSTRALIA -

The land­scape and weather of the Top End change enor­mously de­pend­ing on where you are in the cy­cles of dry (May to Oc­to­ber) and wet (Novem­ber to April). In the Wet sea­son much of the na­tional parks will be closed and roads will be im­pass­able. To­wards the mid­dle or end of the Dry Sea­son (Au­gust-oct) is the best time to go, and when wa­ter cross­ings will be safest, though be aware that some wa­ter­falls will not be flow­ing and fresh wa­ter may be hard to find along some sec­tions of the route. To­ward the end of the dry sea­son tem­per­a­tures and hu­mid­ity can also rise to ex­treme lev­els. air to the rest of Aus­tralia and to nearby cities in Asia. The Man­do­rah Ferry links Dar­win to the start of the route on the Cox Penin­sula, which can oth­er­wise be en­tirely rid­den.
