    Remember the creams!!

    by chelley Written Oct 2, 2006
    Perfect packing!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It's always hot in Darwin so pack your summer stuff - sandals, shorts, vests, sarongs etc... In the rainy season you wear the same stuff with a rain mac - now isn't that easy?
    Don't forget your hat (see pic) and sunglasses!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Remember the insect repellent - the little blighters will get you at any time of year... And the sun screen - all year round...

    Photo Equipment: Do bring a camera - it is just BEAUTIFUL here!

    It can be hot!

    by Travel2write Written Aug 2, 2005

    Luggage and bags: Northern Territory enjoys long hot summers and generally mild winters. The things to keep in mind when packing are:

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: * the north (south to at least Katherine) is subject to heavy rains during the summer months.

    * in summer sunny days have a very high UV factor and are capable of seriously burning the skin.

    * summer is characterised by very high humidity in the north.

    * inland Northern Territory (particularly around Alice Springs and Uluru) experiences continentality - ie. very hot, dry days and nights when the temperature can drop below zero.

    People dress, informally, though Œsmart casual¹ wear is often required after dark at theatres and the more sophisticated hotels and restaurants. Beach wear is acceptable only on the beach and in pubs and fast food outlets; casual clothing is customary in most places.

    For summer months (October to April) pack lightweight garments and a hat. In winter, usually a lightweight overcoat and woollen garments are required. Remember warmer clothes are required in the centre.

    Repellant

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Sunscreen, decent hat, mosquito repellant, anti itch cream, Betadine (cream for open wounds)

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: During our Wet season (October to April) it is very rainy and really humid. Light clothes are best. During the Dry season (May to September) a light jacket could be needed.

    Essential - Walking Boots!!!

    by lmforrister Written Jan 5, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A good pair of walking boots would be a very good idea if you are thinking about visiting the National Parks. I wore trainers and was very uncomfortable as my feet were not very well supported! Don't forget a hat either - with temperatures of 34-37C when i went in October you need sometihng to protect your head!
