Question about the "Build Up"

Jump to last reply

I'm just beginning to plan our 5+ week trip to Australia/NZ (first time both) and hoping I can get some clarity on the weather. We start in Darwin and I was hoping to spend a week or so in the Top End. However, I just read something about the period called "The Build Up" between dry and wet seasons, Fodors guidebook says it is to be avoided. We arrive around Oct 15 (in my ignorance, I got the tickets to Darwin thinking it wouldn't be too too hot. ). Can anyone help with a bit more detail on the typical weather during that time? would it make sense to go to The Kimberley instead or skip the Top End entirely?
