Marvel at the endless variety of the Northern Territory's Top
End landscape, ranging from deep gorges and grasslands to
floodplains and estuary flats. The Top End is a monsoonal area,
which means there are only two seasons, wet and dry - and they live
up to their names!
The dry season runs from May to September, during which humidity
is low and rain stays away. This is followed by two months of what
locals call the 'build-up', where thunderstorms roll in and the Top
End records more lightning strikes than any other place on the
planet. Then begins the wet season - the heat is ceaseless and
water rules the landscape with sudden billabongs and waterfalls
appearing out nowhere… just like magic.
