If you’re still unsure if Darwin is the place for you, have a look at these fast facts below to find out more information.

• Darwin is an average four hours flight from Sydney, but only a surprising two and a half hours from Bali and four and a half hours from Singapore, meaning they are the closest and cheapest gateway from Asia into Australia.

• Darwin enjoys a winter-free tropical climate with average temperatures of 30 degrees.

• Dry Season, running from May to September, boosts warm climates, blue skies and cool evenings.  If you like the party lifestyle, Mitchell St in Darwin is the best place in Australia.

• Wet Season, running from October to April is when it’s hot and wet.  Tropical storms and incredible lightning storms are not one to miss.

• Casual clothing is a true mark of the Darwin lifestyle, laid back and easy going.

• Darwin is full of Crocodiles.  So beware of where you’re swimming.

• Residents of The Northern Territory are usually known as 'Territorians', 'Top Enders' and 'Centralians'.

• The Didjeridoo, the famous instrument of Indigenous Australians, was originally created in Arnhem Land, just East of Darwin.

• Soaked in history, The Northern Territory offers numerous trips into Arnhem Land and the National Parks to places such as Kakadu, Arnhem Land and Litchfield.

• The Northern Territory is expanding constantly, so the call for workers is all year round, no matter when you visit.

So if you’re chasing the sun and love a tan, plus want to earn some good cash, the Northern Territory is the place for you.
