Which one do you prefer? I am not voting because for me it is a tie.

Cairns. Wetter with a less marked and cooler dry season.

Both are extremely appealing, A-grade climates to me, but I'll vote for Darwin thanks to higher sunshine and truly dry winters (I dislike winter rainfall).

Cairns as I grew up there and it was plenty hot and humid. The winters weren't cold in the slightest. Occasionally there were some cool nights but that was about it. Despite receiving over 2000mm of rain it is still far sunnier than where I live now (Melbourne)

Darwin year round 30C+ would probably be too much for me.

I chose Darwin for thunderstorms. But it was a really tough decision.

Cairns for me because the dry season is not as dry. Darwin gets many thunderstorms in the wet season, but I would die of boredom in the dry season.
