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.
Take a break from the city and head to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Berry Springs Nature Park. Do some cultural sightseeing at Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory and Defence of Darwin Experience. Get out of town with these interesting Darwin side-trips: Berry Springs (Territory Wildlife Park & Crazy Acres), Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve (in Humpty Doo) and Litchfield National Park (in Batchelor). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 5th (Sun) at Darwin Waterfront. There's much more to do: stroll through Mindil Beach, cool off at Wave Lagoon, admire the natural beauty at George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Crocodylus Park.

A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.

Venture out of the city with trips to All Saints Anglican Church (in Belhus), Paruna Sanctuary (in Gidgegannup) and Millendon (Fig Tree Estate, Tyler's Vineyard, & more). The adventure continues: take in nature's colorful creations at Kings Park & Botanic Garden, take a tour by water with Mandurah Cruises, identify plant and animal life at Matilda Bay Reserve, and do a tasting at Upper Reach Winery.
