Wet Season in Darwin

Darwin in the Wet is a travelogue and guide book featuring the wet season. The book captures the magic of the Wet with beautiful photographs to enhance journeys and experiences in and around Darwin as well as Litchfield, Kakadu and Katherine.

It’s summer time in Darwin with hot, sunny weather, exciting electrical storms and torrential, cooling rain. The rain is spasmodic, days go by with no rain at all but suddenly down it comes. The landscape is transformed to a vibrant, lush green. Waterfalls overflow and gush through the gorges to explode in the waterholes, tens and sometimes hundreds of meters down the escarpment. Wetlands become seas of water.

Darwin in the Wet shows you how to love the wet season with the best places for storm watching, dawn walks, where to swim and helpful tips on how to beat the heat. Plus the book includes my favourite places to shop and eat.

In addition Darwin offers WWII history, Aboriginal culture and art work, sunset cruises and wildlife adventures. These attractions, together with shopping boutiques and cafes are linked into sightseeing drives and walks through the City. Plus there are out of town journeys which include special wet season tours that should be on everyone’s bucket list. Cruise through paperbark forests, jet boat up the gorges or helicopter over the amazing waterfalls. Detailed itineraries, maps and logistics make it easy to get around and off-peak rates make it more affordable.

Join me on a journey through Darwin in the Wet. Let me introduce you to my local haunts, the places with that cool Darwin buzz.
