Darwin

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Territory Wildlife Park (in Berry Springs) and Litchfield National Park (in Batchelor). Spend the 15th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 20th (Mon) at Darwin Waterfront. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Defence of Darwin Experience, take an in-depth tour of RFDS Darwin Tourist Facility, explore the striking landscape at Berry Springs Nature Park, and enjoy the sand and surf at Mindil Beach.

To find other places to visit, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Darwin road trip planner.

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Darwin. Expect a daytime high around 38°C in May, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Fri) early enough to go by car to Jabiru (Kakadu National Park).
