The climate of Northern Territory (Australia)
Northern Territory lies in the midst of the most Northern states in Australia. This state has a large desert which is also known as the Red Centre of Australia. In the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National park the world famous Ayers Rock is situated. The light fall on this rock has inspired many photographers. Besides the famous Ayres Rock many stone monuments can be seen such as the Devils Marbles and Kata Tjuta. The setting sun makes for beautiful views in this area.
Northern Territory has two types of climate. The southern part has a desert climate. This is a very dry climate with hot summers and slightly colder, but still warm winters. Although temperatures can get very hot during the day, night times are much colder. Temperatures around 0 degrees Celsius are not uncommon. The northern part of the state has a tropical climate. This climate can be divided into two distinct seasons. From May to October it has a dry season and from November to April it has a rainy season. During this season the warm air above the ocean causes heavy rain storms and thunder storms.
