Area Information

Dundee Beach is approximately 125kms from Darwin, making it a popular weekend destination for Darwin residents. It is easily accessible for 2WD vehicles for most part of the year. The town has approximately 400 permanent residents, with development of the area only starting in 1990.

The town looks out over scenic Fog Bay, famous for it’s reef and sport fishing. The Finnis River and its estuaries also offer great scenery and fishing, including the legendary barramundi and giant mud crabs.

The monsoonal weather patterns of the top end are generally characterised by a dry season (May to September) and transitional ‘build up’ period (October-November) into the wet season (December to April). The dry season can be very hot with little moisture in central NT, but is not such an issue in coastal Dundee Beach. The build up months aren’t typically wet but can be very humid as moisture builds up in the air. The wet season brings both high humidity and rainfall while still remaining warm and tropical. The best part is there are very few cold, wintery days, making it a great place to visit all year round.
