Darwin is also well-known as The Top End because it is located at the very top end of Australia. Darwin has a wet and dry season but many people will argue that Darwin has 3 seasons, with the build-up as the third season. During the build-up, Darwin will be scorching hot with high level of humidity. A lot of people will avoid Darwin during this time of the year, but many others will be happy in Darwin during build-up as Darwin also offers so many things to cool you down from the hot sun. From swimming in a natural swimming hole, playing at the water park and even ice skating (yes, Darwin also has an ice skating rink!).
