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.
Adelaide River War Cemetery and The Old Town Hall will appeal to history buffs. Escape the urban bustle at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Litchfield National Park. Explore Darwin's surroundings by going to Magnetic Termite Mounds (in Litchfield National Park) and Territory Wildlife Park (in Berry Springs). Spend the 6th (Sat) on the water with a fishing tour. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 7th (Sun) at Darwin Waterfront. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Mindil Beach, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Cathedral.

For where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Darwin day trip planning app .
