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.
Adelaide River War Cemetery and Star Village will appeal to history buffs. Get outdoors at Mindil Beach and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to Litchfield National Park (Magnetic Termite Mounds, Wangi Falls, & more), Territory Wildlife Park (in Berry Springs) and Litchfield National Park (in Batchelor). There's lots more to do: get interesting insight from Tours, make a splash at Darwin Waterfront, take in the dramatic natural features at Berry Springs Nature Park, and see the interesting displays at Defence of Darwin Experience.
