A little bit about Darwin
Darwin is by far the hottest Australian capital, with an average of over 30C in the wet season. With its tropical climate, the heat can be oppressive for many, and a shock to those who are not acclimatised to it. The local ecosystem however makes for breathtaking wildlife sanctuaries and scenery: beyond the city's own crocodile farms and Litchefield National Park, Darwin is the gateway to many of Australia's superb natural landmarks, including the Outback, Alice Springs, Kakadu National Park, and Uluru. Darwin too is home to Australia's largest Indigenous population, and has several Aboriginal Art Galleries which showcase some of the finest exhibitions of Indigenous culture.
