Way up north, at the very top of the Top End, sits Darwin, the cruisy capital city of the Northern Territory. Named after that famous biologist Charles, the tropical city is closer to Asia than most other popular Australian holiday destinations. For a city with such a small population, just over one hundred thousand, Darwin packs quite a punch in terms of sightseeing opportunities. A sightseeing tour around the city will take you to explore the rich heritage of the area, from the ancient history of the Indigenous population to the air raids of World War II and the modern art scene. But most visitors are more interested in Darwin as a gateway to the vast expanses of pristine national park of the Northern Territory. Sightseeing tours from Darwin to Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks will take you to discover cascading waterfalls, refreshing swimming holes and some of the most spectacular scenery you can find in Australia.
