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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Territory Wildlife Park and East Point Reserve. RFDS Darwin Tourist Facility and Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory are good opportunities to explore the local culture. When in Darwin, make a side trip to see Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve in Humpty Doo, approximately 1 hour away. There's still lots to do: stroll through Leanyer Recreation Park, make a trip to Magnetic Termite Mounds, enjoy the sand and surf at Mindil Beach, and take in the exciting artwork at Outstation Gallery - Aboriginal Art from Art Centres.
