There are a few important differences in the Northern Territory when you compare it with most other states and territories and these need to be factored in with your travel planning.
Climate is vastly different to southern states; essentially 2 seasons with November to April being the Wet Season (also called the Green Season) and May to October being the Dry Season.
Both have plusses and minuses as rain, flooding, heat and humidity as well as cyclones can put off travelers in the Wet Season and at the same time it creates a whole different look and scenery with the flora and fauna that season brings.
Many accommodation properties are closed in the Wet season.
