Darwin, the tropical capital of the Northern Territory. Known as something of a wild frontier town, this unique corner of the world has grown to become an urbanised and highly cosmopolitan commercial centre for the top end's mining, oil, gas, agriculture and tourism industries.
Darwin is about as close by plane to Singapore and Vietnam as it is to Melbourne and Sydney. Little wonder then that this is such a multicultural corner of the continent, with these communities bringing their food culture with them. Darwin is wedged between tropical fisheries and a pastoral industry, and has spectacular local food markets, providing superbaccess to great local produce. With that stunning Darwin sunset available free of charge every evening, it's no surprise that when it's time to relax, people in Darwin love to enjoy the good life outdoors.
Climate and Seasons
Darwin is a tropical town. It gets hot. Throughout the year it gets hot. Sometimes it's really hot. The average daily maximum sits between 30 and 32 degrees all year around, with overnight lows a little cooler in June or July as compared to December or January.
Darwin has two main seasons, wet and dry. As well as being consistently dry and hot throughout the year Darwin also experiences a very wet season. Being a tropical city Darwin is prone to cyclone activity during this wet season. Heavy monsoonal downpours and magnificent lightning shows are a continuous event throughout the Darwin wet season. The dry season brings with it clear blue skies and gentle sea breezes.
Planning an Outdoor Area in Darwin
As mentioned Darwin has two distinct seasons – one wet and one dry. The wet season and majority of Darwin’s rainfall occurs between December and March. The dry season runs from May to September in which every day is warm and sunny with the average daily maximum temperature reaching 30 degrees or more. When designing an outdoor area in Darwin one of the first considerations is the climate. The climate affects how an outdoor area is landscaped and which plants are grown.
As majority of the year in Darwin is hot their gardens are heavily focused on outdoor living. Most Darwin homes have a large outdoor area dedicated to entertaining family and friends and enjoying the sun and warmer weather. Shaded pergolas and decked areas are also common within Darwin homes. Yukkas and various native plants tend to grow quite well in Darwin as they can handle the heat and will last for many years. Darwin landscapes also tend to be quite relaxed, so you rarely see straight hedges and perfect garden beds. Instead informal relaxed layouts and curved water features are used to create a tranquil, calm feeling. Another common element used in Darwin landscaping is sandstone. Either in the form of stepping stones, a feature wall or garden decorations, sandstone contrasts brilliantly against native plants and will be sure to create a strong, dominant feature in any Darwin outdoor area.
Selecting the Right Outdoor Furniture for Darwin
Being a hot city, it’s important to choose furniture that will withstand the heat. Polyethylene rattan, otherwise known as resin wicker or ‘all weather wicker’ can be sat outside all year long in any type of weather condition making it the perfect material to use outdoors in the Darwin climate. Black polyethylene rattan will fade over time in the sun, so for a Darwin outdoor area it is recommended to choose lighter colours that will last for much longer periods in the sun as well as complement native plants and help create a relaxed urban area.
Furniture Suggestions for Darwin
An important piece of furniture to consider for any Darwin outdoor area is an umbrella. An umbrella is not only a practical shade solution, which is sure to keep the heat off you and your family throughout the dry season, they look great and can be purchased in a variety of colours and sizes to suit your outdoor area. Then once your shade solution is sorted, why not consider a hammock and hammock stand and enjoy many hours of relaxation in your tropical paradise?
