Darwin is a long way from any other large cities. There are three other countries capitals closer than any of the State capitals in Australia.
There is only one road south from Darwin, which connects with the road to West Australia at Katherine, then with the road east to Mt. Isa just before Tennant Creek then heads south from there to Alice Springs and ultimately Adelaide.
These are all sealed roads which are open to traffic all year , except in the case of exceptional rain , which may cover roads for short periods and make them impassable.
This view of the Arnhem Highway shows the results of heavy rain early in 2007. Photo courtesy of Darwins Barra Base from a helicopter used to get Barramundi fishermen to their favourite fishing spots when the roads are closed for a week or so.
