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.
Go for a jaunt from Darwin to Batchelor to see Litchfield National Park about 1h 45 min away. Spend the 3rd (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Mindil Beach, see the interesting displays at Defence of Darwin Experience, make a splash at Wave Lagoon, and identify plant and animal life at Crocosaurus Cove.

To see photos, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Darwin journey maker site .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Darwin International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
