Most people don't head to Darwin until the Dry - there is less humidity and the temperatures are milder. But I had some work there last week and took the opportunity to spend a couple of extra days there. No one who knows me will be surprised when I say that the heat and humidity suited me just fine. As it was the tail end of the Wet, there weren't any spectacular storms or light shows in the sky, but I did get some rain and some lightning.
Although we commonly refer to only 2 seasons - Wet and Dry - the Indigenous Australians of the Kakadu region recognise 6 seasons -with this part of the year designated the Monsoon season.
