    About the Top End in Northern Territory Australia where has two seasons a Dry Season and a Wet Season.

    The Northern Territory has two distinct climate zones: the tropical Top End, which has two seasons, and semi-arid Central Australia, which has four.

    The Top End includes Darwin, Katherine, Timber Creek, Pine Creek, Adelaide River, Acacia, Jabiru, Litchfield National Park, Cobourg Peninsula | Gurig National Park off Arnhemland. Garig Gunak Barlu, Katherine Gorge, Nitmiluk National park, Gregory National Park, Keep River National Park, Limmen National Park, Mary River National Park, Crab Claw island and more tourist spots. To a lesser degree Elsey National Park, and Mataranka.

    Dry Season: About the darwin dry season months in Darwin, Kakadu, Katherine, Katherine and the Top End.
    The ‘Dry’ season, from May until October, is characterised by warm, dry sunny day's and cool nights. Temperatures typically range from 21C (70F) to 32C (90F), and the humidity levels are much lower: around 60–65%.

    Wet Season: About the darwin dry season months in Darwin, Kakadu, Katherine, Katherine and the Top End.
    The Wet season spans from November until April and is characterised by increased humidity followed by monsoonal rains and storms. Temperatures typically range from a minimum of 25C (77F) to a maximum of 33C (91F), and humidity levels can reach in excess of 80%. While weather conditions at this time of year can restrict travel to some areas, the Wet season is a stunning time to see the Top End. Waterfalls tumble, skies host incredible light shows, and the landscape turns a lush green.
