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.
Get in touch with nature at Mindil Beach and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Adelaide River War Cemetery and Christ Church Cathedral Darwin will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Darwin side-trips: Litchfield National Park (Magnetic Termite Mounds, Wangi Falls, &more), Territory Wildlife Park (in Berry Springs) and Litchfield National Park (in Batchelor). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Crocosaurus Cove, make a splash at Darwin Waterfront, examine the collection at Defence of Darwin Experience, and take an in-depth tour of RFDS Darwin Tourist Facility.
