Darwin

Tropical, laidback and isolated, Darwin may feel like a foreign country if you fly in straight from Sydney or Melbourne. Land of the Larrakia people, yet closer to Asia than any Aussie capital, Darwin combines traditional with multicultural for a truly unique vibe, best expressed in the vibrant Mindil Beach markets. The city is steeped in history, from the customs and stories of the Larrakia to the bombing during WWII, all ready to be uncovered in the museums and galleries around town.

But despite its cultural attractions, most travellers to Darwin don’t come for the city itself, but for the spectacular wilderness just on its doorstep. Kakadu and Litchfield national parks draw adventure seekers and nature lovers looking for a real Outback experience amongst the wild scenery of the Top End. Travellers looking for a real connection to the local Aboriginal cultures need look no further than Tiwi Island and Nitmiluk National Park.
