There are but 2 seasons in the upper Northern Territory of Australia – ‘the Wet’ and ‘the Dry’ (while indigenous groups distinguish up to 8 seasons, in recognition of subtle changes in the annual life cycles of local flora and fauna). The Wet coincides with the southern hemisphere’s spring/summer, and the Dry with autumn/winter. Mean temperatures hardly alter throughout the year, with a daily average of 32C degrees. An extremely high humidity marks out the Wet as NOT being the ideal time to visit unless you love living in sauna conditions.
