Discover

Darwin, Kakadu & Surroundings

Located nearer to south-east Asia than Sydney and Melbourne, Darwin is the pearl in Australia’s tropical Northern Territory. With year-round heat, Darwin offers a number of attractions, including exuberant outdoor festivals, absorbing art galleries, the colourful Mindil Beach Markets and tropical parklands which showcase the unique flora and fauna of the area. The city’s modern waterfront offers a quality selection of bars and restaurants whilst culture buffs can learn about Darwin’s tempestuous history at its distinguished museums. In addition to its own charms, Darwin also acts as a base to discover the natural beauty of Litchfield National Park, Kakadu, Arnhem Land and Tiwi Islands. For ambitious adventurers, Darwin is an important pit-stop for inter-state journeys on the Ghan Railway, the Explorer’s Highway and the Savannah Way.
