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.

There's lots more to do: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Mindil Beach, make a splash at Wave Lagoon, and examine the collection at Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.
