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.
When in Darwin, make a side trip to see Territory Wildlife Park in Berry Springs, approximately 42 minutes away. Spend the 3rd (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 4th (Thu) on the water with a fishing tour. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Crocosaurus Cove, examine the collection at Defence of Darwin Experience, make a splash at Darwin Waterfront, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Mindil Beach.
