Inspiration for your next adventure around the Northern Territory's Top End.

Jaw-dropping storms only seen in the wet season

Seen the Top End in the Dry Season? Now see it in the Wet! We're privileged to witness some of the most spectacular storms. Here is a round-up of jaw-dropping photos from Top End travellers to show you why we love the wet season (and why you should too!).

#1: Storm chasing in Katherine with @jodibilske_photographics always produces some amazing captures of our Top End wet season! ☔️

 

 

#2: @jacciingham captured this lightening beauty near Adelaide River just an hour's drive from the Northern Territory's capital, Darwin

#3:Watching the storms roll in across the Darwin Harbour is definitely one of the perks of our wet season! Captured beautifully here by @bengfuller across Darwin's iconic East Point Reserve

#4: Perfect timing on a beautiful capture by @aussierambling ⚡ during an amazing Top End light show

#5: Mandorah Jetty put on a evening show over its glassy harbour

#6: A peek across the Darwin harbour from Wagait Beach just before a tropical storm in the afternoon ☔️ thanks to @snapperartsy!

#7: Many @cityofdarwin locals will tell you that the tropical summer is an exciting time for the region with Mother Nature cranking it up a few notches

#8: Look closely and you’ll see the Pilot Boat making it's way home before the storm 

#9: A kicker of a Kakady storm! Time to leg it @twolittleterritorians 

#10: Our stormy wet season sunsets are something all nature lovers need to experience and @nath_lew captures them beautifully!

#11: The first line of showers were just popping around the corner as the sun set, lighting up beautifully with a pretty pink glow for @snapperartsy.

#12: @snapperartsy caught this sunset casting a glorious golden glow over the harbour. As the light faded crawler lightning lit up the sky.

Stokes Hill Wharf is a perfect spot to watch the storms roll in. I've been away from Darwin for a few years & must say, it was nice to stand there and watch the clouds roll over the ocean and light up the waters. . . #tourismtopend #olympus_au . #olympusinspired #amazing_shotz #discoveryaustralia #australia_shotz #natgeo #nationalgeographic #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #discoveryaus #ig_discover_australia #seeaustralia #visitdarwin #ig_australia #discoverdarwin #natgeotravel @visitaus @ig_discover_australia #visitaustralia @natgeo @natgeoadventure @yourshotphotograpgher #fiftyshades_of_nature #focusaustralia @loves_united_australia @wow_australia @snaphappytv @austphotomag @australia #valsoly #olympusinspired #omdrevolution #omd @olympus.gram @olympus_au @olympuscamera #em1markii @microfournerds #valsoly @awesome_earthpix @australia #olympus_au #fiftyshades_of_macro @australiaaloveaffair @ig_aussiepix @wow_australia @ausoutbackn #cuinthent @lifeofaustralia @mytopend @australiasloveaffair @earthpix @earthstoke #ig_australia

#16: Taking a scenic flight in either a fixed wing plane or helicopter over the world famous Kakadu region should be high on your 2018 travel list! Witness magnificent storms, sunsets, waterfalls and majestic stone escarpments among our Top End tropical paradise

#17: A heart pumper of a storm breaking over the Wildman River in the Northern Territory's Top End experienced by @bradleuephotography

#18: A beautifully structured storm on approach to Darwin captured by @snapperartsy

#19: @mkh_visualaspect had a great view over the city as a storm rolls in.

Do you have some cracker wet season photos to add to this list?
