The winter months here at Journey Jottings are some of our busiest months when it comes to supplying retailers, as this is the prime travelling season for visitors to explore northern Australia.
The weather in the Top End and the Kimberley region is uncomfortably hot and humid during the summer months (November ~ March), not to mention the monsoonal rains that cut swathes of the country off as rivers flood, and makes roads impassable ~ That is the Wet season up in the tropical north.
The winter (April ~ October), on the other hand is the Dry season and is therefore the optimum time to explore this area while the weather offers sunny, blue sky days with comfortable cool evenings. Its a win:win scenario for both escaping the southern cold winter, while holidaying in a stunningly beautiful scenic area with a perfect climate 😉
The highlight for this month therefore has to be the Kimberley region Map Magnet literally flying out the door to supply all those lucky travellers touring the gorgeous Kimberley region.
At the end of each month I enter a Journey Jottings highlight on a Map Journal so at year’s end I’ll have 2010 simply summarized on a single sheet ~ The image above is August’s entry.
Click on the ‘2010‘ tag to see ‘my year at a glance’ so far 😉
