Darwin, the capital city of the Northern Territory, is a multicultural cosmopolitan situated at the top of Australia. Bordering the Timor Sea, this vibrant metropolis is isolated from any other major city and is entirely surrounded by ocean, reserves, and conservation areas.
A recreational playground, Darwin is the gateway to the celebrated Katherine Gorge, Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks. Darwin has a tropical climate – during wet season surrounding waterfalls come alive, while the dry season brings extended periods of clear skies and sunshine.
Renowned for its world class fishing and abundance of natural attractions, Darwin is also distinguished by its significantly preserved Indigenous heritage, featuring the highest concentration of Aboriginal Rock art in the world.
Innovative cuisine is just another way Darwin is set apart. Dine at one of the city’s leading restaurants and discover a menu featuring anything from Asian cuisine through to Kangaroo, Crocodile, Barramundi – and even camel!
Despite its remoteness, the Darwin International Airport frequently connects visitors from around the world, and the Great Southern Rail provides one of the ultimate trips to Darwin across the heart of Australia onboard the Ghan.
