Darwin to Brisbane

I have only gone the other way and certainly would not have wanted to be going south with all of the 30 know SE winds we had, so have a questions for Aussies with experience in the area. What would be the best season to guy from Darwin to Brisbane and what sort of conditions would one expect?

Still looking for our next boat. Have decided we want to have something that will keep us happy for the next 10 years or so. By then I will be pushing 80 and if i am still sailing that will be a very good thing.

Re: Darwin to Brisbane

I went Darwin to Cairns in October 09 in conditions you describe, although I was expecting/hoping for northerlies. I was able to anchor almost every night.
