Darwin is home to many spectacular tropical birds.The best time to visit is the dry season between July and November. The George Brown Botanic Gardens and East Point Mangroves, and further away Fogg Dam, are all excellent places to see birds. Darwin is central for travel to Kakadu, Katherine and the Kimberley.
