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?

Didn't get off to Newfoundland as hoped this summer. The post-circumnavigation refit has taken longer than expected. Still a few things to do, but basically Ainia is looking like a new boat (well sort of).

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.
