On the 6th (Sun), see the world from above with a helicopter tour and then take in the dramatic scenery at Wangi Falls. On the 7th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: identify plant and animal life at Nina's Ark Wildlife Sanctuary, make a trip to Magnetic Termite Mounds, and then trek along Walker Creek.

Darwin

— 9 nights

Outback Capital of the Northern Territory

The smallest of Australia’s state capitals, Darwin has nevertheless become an attractive and important urban center, being simultaneously one of the country’s most modernized cities and a gateway to both the Top End region and South East Asia.
Change things up with a short trip to Territory Wildlife Park in Berry Springs (about 42 minutes away). Spend the 10th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Crocosaurus Cove, cool off at Darwin Waterfront, take in nature's colorful creations at George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens, and get to know the resident critters at Crocodylus Park.
